The iPad shown in the photos may look slightly different from your iPad, but the procedure is the same.
Insert a metal spudger between the right edge of the display assembly and the rear panel assembly.
Rotate the spudger away from you to release the tabs along the top edge of the display.
Remove the headphone jack from the rear case.
Make sure you transfer the rubber sound channel from your old microphone to the new microphone.
Before reinstalling the screws, be sure the headphone jack is properly seated in the headphone jack hole cut into the top edge of the rear case.
