Tripod Socket Loose

My K10D tripod socket is loose. It will work, but if the tripod/monopod is not completely seated, the socket will move inside the camera. I was wondering if this can be repaired by myself or is this a camera shop expense? Or should I just be careful and use it as is? I use a tripod about 15% of the time.

That socket should be held by 4 screws. Just remove the bottom and tighten them will do. You may threadlock them if possible.

Should be pretty straight forward to gain access to the tripod mounting socket.
