\015\012well to answer your question it might be possible for you to order a replacement sound board online. try ebay. also you can try wo use paper to wedge under the jack
This doesn't sound like Dell support to me. I've never had a problem with replacement of a part when the system is under warrantee. I would call Dell back and get a supervisor and elevate the problem. If they fix keyboards that owner's drop soda on, they should fix your headphone jack problem. The jack is integrated onto the motherboard so a motherboard replacement is probably the solution.Keep after Dell. "The squeeky wheel gets the oil"
