Bent charging port - should I buy a $100 replacement keyboard case?

After a fall, the metal around my charging port got bent in (see the picture)

because the charging cable was plugged in and it hammered in a portion of the metal casing. The port works, you just have to fiddle with it quite a bit in order to make it connect.

I was thinking, is it worth it to buy the following replacement metal casing:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Replacement-B...

and transfer all the hardware into it?

Specifically, I have three doubts/questions:

  1. From the ebay listing, can you guys figure out whether they're selling the whole casing (back and front) or only the front/keyboard part?
  2. Does the ebay item linked above look to you 100% equivalent to the original Microsoft part (same metal alloy, same quality keys etc.)? If not, where can I find an adequate replacement (I didn't find the piece on ifixit)?
  3. Is the replacement really hard? I see the device is rated 1 out of 10 in ifixit's repairability rating,and I don't want to damage it further…

Thanks and all the best!

@spinoro looks like your ebay listing is for the bottom part only. Yes, it is an absolute PITA to work on. You may consider keeping to fiddle around with the charging cord than trying to replace it. Unless of course you find a complete case and have lots of patience etc.
