My wife drop her iPhone into the kitchen sink and speaker stop to work after that
The entire repair took me around 2 hours. One hour for dissemble and one hour for putting it back together. I would say the cables and parts surrounding the speaker unit is kinda of tricky. It took me awhile to figure that part out. But the rest of repair went really smoothly thanks to the excellent guide iFixIt wrote.
The part is really tiny so be sure you don't drop it.
Make sure label all parts that you took off.

I could hardly hear anything from my iPhone 4s earpiece anymore.
My repair went great thanks to ifixit's very detailed instructions.
Keep your screws together with each step that you do. A screw tray would work great. I didn't have one so I used upside-down sticky notes and wrote which part of the phone the screws and parts came from. Put the screws on the sticky part of the note. Worked very well. Thanks ifixit!!!

I wanted to fix it because it is less expensive than buying a new phone.
The repair was long. I only have the use of 1 hand. My right hand is paralyzed. I actually LOST the earpiece when doing the repair and that is why I had to order it.
Keep track of your screws. Not all of the tools supplied by iFixit worked the best because the phillips (star) tip was not sharp enough even though it was a size 0. Being magnetic is great when disassembling but not when reassembling. I ended up buying a new non-magnetic set from our local Canadian Tire store. The Tweezers are a MUST!
Another thing is the glue that Apple uses. They use a lot of it. The power ribbon is glued to the case and it tore when I unclipped it from the circuit board so be careful.
The replacement Glass does not come with the button. That has to be removed from the old glass. It is held in-place by a thin rubber casing which has to be torn away to remove the button. You will have to align the button correctly when reassembling.
In the end my son was extremely glad that it was fixed.

Client dropped phone into ocean
Very well, was in ocean for about 5 min,
Replaced ear speaker, speakers on bottom of unit, battery, screen/digitize
Unit fired up with no problems
Think that him placing unit in bag of silicon pellets and getting as much air as possible out of container and setting for 72 hours increased chances of repair

Stop the Buzzing iPhone 4S earpiece after accidentally dropping my phone.
It took about an hour-I have a full Weha toolset and a task light which came in handy.
Lay out a large piece of white paper to work on and place a strip of blue painters tape (inverted so the sticky side face out) along the top to collect your screws. I removed parts for each step with a label and placement on the tape exactly as they are seen on the iPhone. It keeps track of the parts and separates them according to each step.
Be careful with the small opening tool-the tip can break off easily.

Found an iPhone 4S frozen solid to the road and I believe run over by a car.
The repair went very well thanks to your easy to follow guides. Was pretty scary having to practically disassemble the entire phone to reach the earpiece.
Organize what you take out of the phone by the step you did to remove it. I placed everything on a white piece of paper and circled and numbered the parts I took out with all their associated screws.
