Replacing a power jack on a laptop

Games, Gaming and Hardware
recently my powerjack has become loose and i have to wiggle my charger in all different directions for it to charge, ive been watching videos on how to replace it and it seems fairly easy, not only that but id be saving like 70$ doing it myself, i was just wondering How in FACT hard is it to change a powerjack? is there a high risk of me screwing up the laptop in general? should I even do it myself?
What laptop is it? Every unit is different. I would honestly check into sending the unit back to have them fix it under warranty. My Asus ROG unit had the same problem and they covered it. It was only in their facility for about 3 days and I was only without the laptop for about 2 weeks (rest was travel time/weekends). Definitely look into your warranty.
