Smooth sailing

by ebow

My Problem

Our daughter sucked on the bottom of my wife's iPhone 4 and ruined the speaker. It still played sound but it was muffled and quiet.

My Fix

Minor panic when I thought it was a 4s and was using the wrong guide. I was worried it was the wrong part I'd ordered but once I got the correct instructions it was smooth sailing.

My Advice

Make sure you keep track of which screws go where. There are so many at different sizes ... I'm not sure I got all of them back in the correct spots ;-)

There was also 1 flat rubber seal that I didn't see where it came from and couldn't figure out where it goes. It was up near the camera but not 100% sure where.
