Just wondering if its a mammoth task to replace a controller port?

the plastic bit in the middle that holds the pins is missing and 1 pin is completely bent back.

Just unplug the yellow cords that go to the motherboard, unscrew the screws with the torx 10, then switch their spots. Screw them into their new spots, plug the yellow cord back into the motherboard and your set.

Just a reminder that you can order a controller port from a number of diffrent sites if you wish to replace the bad one eventually. Even Ebay has one or two for sale. Very Happy

earlier xboxes use a separate daughter board to connect the USB ports, what version is your xbox?
