Broken AUX Input

I have a 2007 MK Compass and my head unit (stock) has the AUX input. I went to turn on my wipers kind of quickly and nudged my cable that was in the input hard and it came loose. Is this input part of the whole head unit or is it a replaceable part? It still works, but the cable has to sit JUST right or it doesn't work. If/once I get it replaced, I'm buying a cable that doesn't have such a large stress boot on the end!

the wife has the patriot so I cant check the aux input on ours right now to see how its set up. my guess is maybe the contacts in the socket are bent. be an easy fix depending on how the HU is built.

is the actual socket loose?

are you sure its the aux socket and not the cable?

if you replace the cable get one with a 90* (right angle) plug.

It's defintely the socket. If I take the cable out, I can move the socket with my finger. It's not a big deal, just wondering if anyone has had this problem or if they had taken the stock radio out and seen if the input is modular or not.

No one else has had this problem? I can't even find a replacement head unit to see if I can replace this piece.

The iPod integration kit has an Aux input on it, which is probably a lot cheaper than replacing the radio, and you get iPod control as an added bonus (if you have or want an iPod)... I think the iPod kit works on all of the '07+ factory installed radios. Mopar accessories part number: 82209617AD
