Can I replace my headphone jack?
The headphone jack (located below the power button) on my PPC G5 is damaged.
Can I repair or replace this part myself?
The PowerMac G5 is a desktop computer first produced in 2003 by the Apple Corporation. This guide will review the repair process of an Apple PowerMac G5 model number A1047 EMC 2061 from 2004. It was discontinued in 2006 as part of the Intel switch first to developers then consumers.
Get an extension cable for your headphone and use the rear port. You can replace the panel. Here's the part on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/G5-PowerMac-case-Par...
Here's another: http://www.welovemacs.com/9225979.html
Using a jeweler’s flatblade screwdriver, pry up the metal cap covering the front panel board EMI shield.
Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the two front panel board mounting screws.
Carefully pull the board a short distance out of its EMI shield, and disconnect the power button cable from the board.
Remove the board and shield from the enclosure. That's it.

Thanks so much for the assistance.
The G5 PowerMac case Part FRONT PANEL USB FIREWIRE BOARD referenced by rj looks like what I need.
Can I access and easily knock out the old part? In other words, is this a simple operation like plugging in an HDD or RAM, or is this part difficult to access?
