Why can't I screw the bottom right P2 screw back in place?

Hi Guys! First of all thanks for all the support this great community provide.

I've got an issue with the loudspeaker of an Iphone 5c I'm fixing - sometimes it stops working- and I hardly suspect this is due to the lack of the bottom right P2 screw, which can't hold in place the speaker onto its contacts.

I've already bought new screws to replace the missing one, but when I've tried to screw it in place, it couldn't fit (I've also tried moving the original left one, into the right hole, but with the same result).

What can I do? Is there a replacing part for the P2 screws housing?

Thank you all!

Check the front display assembly at the lower part. There are two screw holes for the pentalobe screws. If one or more is missing, the missing sides will just have the screws spinning to nothing.

If they are both there then you will probably need to poke something through a bit then close then put the screen back in place and try again.

There is no easy replacement for the P2 pentalobe screw holes as they are part of the front display screen frame.

Thanks for your answer! Is surely helpful :)

Luckly the display assembly seems to be fine, even 'cause the issues still remain without the display assembly...

May it be due to the lightning connector housing? in that case, is there a part just for it, or should I change all the connector?


I doubt the dock connector would be at fault because it shouldn't obstruct where it goes unless the whole phone housing is badly damaged / bent at the bottom part.
