How easy is it to fix the headphone jack on an iPhone?

My iPhone's headphone jack only sends sound to one headphone. Is it possible to fix it myself? Someone told me Apple would charge around £100!

I've replaced a few of these in my time.
It takes a bit of courage to first open up the phone but once inside there are sooooooo many 'teardown' pages in the tinterweb even youtube vids explaining it.
The part costs about 5-6 quid, so money could be saved there.
otherwise if you're not feeling too confident there are plenty of places that will do it for you for a bit more
