The "specific" part he needs is a new dock. The dock consists of the charging port, the home button receiver, and the bottom microphone. He does not need a new speaker.

If your microphone is not working there isn't anything you can do to really fix it so you will have to replace it. As you are on this site I'm sure you are quite familiar with a screwdriver and prying tool.

Follow the guide to replace the module which houses the microphone (on the left-hand side to the 30-pin dock connector) It's not a particularly easy fix but it is plain sailing once you have got past the battery.

A new module can be bought here on iFixit, on eBay or even on Amazon, won't cost you that £/$ 100 though and there isn't too much you can break apart from removing that battery which you might damage as you take it out. I'd replace that too if your iPhone is old, they are not excessively expensive either and it will improve your battery life too!

Hope this helps!

It seems there are a few different reasons why the lower microphone may stop working. I never had a problem with mine until I replaced the front glass. Having said that, when it did become an issue, it was almost exclusive to the mic not working during phone calls when using the handset. Speakerphone worked. Other apps like voice memos worked. For about $18 I ordered two replacements to be safe. But I then reopened the phone and dismantled it to the speaker and microphone. When I did I discovered that the microphone connection on the bottom uses a tube to funnel sound from the little speaker port outside. This tube had actually become dislodged when I replaced the speaker in reassembly. It's a little black rubber tube with a flat end. It almost looks like a tiny liquer bottle cap. Since I had closed/crimped the tube, no sound was picked up by the microphone. Much like a garden hose.

Update

Here is the part should you need to replace it.
