Vaio VGN-FW351J DC power Jack

I took apart my sony vaio VGN-FW351J with the intention of replacing the DC power jack

Problem is I can't get the circular housing piece off that holds the DC jack. I removed the one screw I thought was securing it but i can't pull it off with any amount of force.

I don't want to break anything more. I understand the jack itself might be soldered on. If so I can deal with that but I still need to get the circular housing piece off to get to that

any help would be appreciated.

  4. I think you will have to break the housing piece, I checked the housing piece, even I take off the screws and the metal piece, I could not take off the dc power jack, I have to break the narrow part of the housing, this will not damage much of the housing, and the housing piece can be put in the laptop stably, I am not professional in repair a laptop, anyone who has a better idea please leave a message..
