There are actually two microphones in the phone. The one that is used for the speaker phone and video sound capture is located towards the top area of the phone. The microphone you are having issues with is located on the bottom of the phone. This mic is located on the small USB charge port pcb. You can replace the USB charge port pcb to fix the mic issue. The mic was likely damaged by the liquid which will require you to replace it. You can do this by either replacing the USB pcb or replacing just the mic which requires a rework or hot air station to remove and solder the new mic. Hope this helps. If you need assistance finding parts just let me know.
