It is impossible to unmount the old damaged USB-Interface this way. Beside the four solder-points ist is also soldered to 5 extremely small points on the motherboards opposite side. These are SMD-mounted contacts and in my case trying to unsolder them damaged the motherbords layout.

I was able to desolder it with a hot air rework station + soldering iron without damaging the pcb then using a wick cut at an angle + the heat gun to clean the mounting holes you must clean then fully so the new part will mount flush.

Also take care with resoldering the new connector not to bridge the pins on the usb port.
