I managed a mechanical "no heat" desolder of the usb port on one of my 
modules last year (I wasn't careful when sliding the seat back with a 
cable plugged in). When I took it apart I could see that there was not 
very much solder in the four holes that secure the usb shell to the 
board. At the time my suspicion was that the small amount of solder from 
the factory wave solder made for a weak bond. I was lucky that I didn't 
lift any pads and was able to resolder it.
