Unfortunately, the mic is part of the dock connector. I don't think you can separate them without some serious intricate work. (step 16 shows how attached the mic is to the dock connector). Either way, you would definitely need to (at minimum) take the display assembly off to access it at all.

The good news is that the 3G is INFINITELY easier to take apart than the original version!
