5C Ear speaker quiet and muffled after front screen assembly repair?


After replacing the front screen assembly on the iPhone 5C the ear speaker became very very quiet and sounds muffled.

I have encountered a problem like this before with the iPhone 5 and the small rubber gasket that the ear speaker sits in was being pressed down over the ear speaker hole which was causing the decrease in sound volume. I was able to open the 5 up again and correct this fairly easily.

However, I do not see the 5C ear speaker depressing the rubber piece that the front camera and ear speaker sit in.

Does anyone know what the potential cause of this would be? I have new 5C ear speakers and screens coming in so I will be changing them out to see if I can correct the issue.

Thanks for reading.
