To remove the speaker you will first need to remove the battery, open the phone and remove the motherboard. Be ready to use a plastic opening tool, T5 Torx Screwdriver, spudger and head gun or hair dryer.

  1. Pry the rear cover from the back of the phone.
    • Pry the rear cover from the back of the phone.

  2. Insert a spudger or plastic opening tool into the small notch at the base of the battery.
    • Insert a spudger or plastic opening tool into the small notch at the base of the battery.

    • Lift the battery out of the phone.

    • Remove the four 5.0 mm T5 Torx screws from the corners of the phone.

    • Remove three 5.5 mm T5 Torx screws from the back of the phone.

    • Lift up the black rubber flap near the SD card slot.

    • Remove the single 5.5 mm T5 Torx screw beneath the flap.

    • Do not attempt to loosen the screws with too much force. These screws are small, and easily stripped.

    • Remove the back case of the phone by gently lifting the tabs located on top of the phone near the lock button.

    • Use the case opener or spudger in these small areas because the plastic tabs can be easily broken.

    • Lift the tabs located on the bottom of the phone to continue removing the back cover.

    • Slide an opening tool between the gap from the back of the case to the front.

    • After separating the sides, make sure there is a noticeable gap between the back case and the rest of the phone.

    • After detaching the tabs and sliding down the sides, there should be a noticeable gap between the front and back cases.

    • Carefully separate the back case from the rest of the phone by lifting it away from the phone.

    • Do not completely remove the case from the rest of the phone. The antenna is connected to both cases.

    • Disconnect the antenna from its housing on the motherboard by gently lifting beneath it.

    • Ease the antenna from out of its guide along the side of the phone

    • Once the antenna is detached, remove the back case and the antenna from the phone

    • The antenna is soldered to the back case. Do not pull with too much force.

    • To remove the motherboard, first dislodge the right side of the motherboard, where the external connections are located, from the rest of the phone.

    • This can be done by placing a spudger in between the two ports on the phone, between the black plastic and motherboard, and prying out.

    • The motherboard should be able to be easily lifted upwards after dislodging it.

    • If the white rubber piece moves, replace it where it came from upon reassembly.

    • First, several connections must be disconnected to completely separate the motherboard from the rest of the phone.

    • The connection highlighted with a red box must be pulled down instead of out.

    • Using the spudger tool, separate the two connections on the motherboard highlighted with orange circles by pulling them out.

    • The black switch on top of this connection acts as a lock. Push it forwards to unlock the connection.

    • After disconnecting the motherboard, there should be five distinct and separate parts of the phone: back cover, back case, front case, battery, and motherboard.

    • In order to get to the top speaker, first remove the rubber cover located directly over the speaker.

    • The orange adhesive strip needs to be peeled off in order to remove the top speaker. This can be done using fingernails or the spudger tool.

    • Using the spudger, lift up from under the top speaker and it should slide easily out of place.

    • Be careful when removing top speaker out of its housing because it is still connected to the phone. You must undo the connection indicated with the orange circle before complete removal.

    • To undo the connector lift the black flap up - edge closest to the speaker - then the cable slides out
