Bent memory card reader pin on canon 350d

\015 Middle pin of memory card reader slightly bent on canon 350d, is there a way of removing the whole component to fix myself or will i need to send it to canon? Have 1 pin slightly pushed in. i believe it is fixable but am nervous about taking the camera apart and doing more harm than good...any schematics available to safely disect this thing?\015

Answers :

I found these a while back for the 300D - won't be that much different. You could use these as a basis for having a go for yourself - you shouldn't have to disassemble too much to just get to the CF pins.
