Left Speaker Replacement Guide

Can you make a teardown guide for the A2141 Left/Right speaker replacement? Or is it such a simple fix I should just give it a go?

Nothing difficult other than they are glued in! As you can see here

Make sure the speaker comes with a new cut adhesive as you don’t want to use anything else.

Use a heat gun to heat up the grill side just don’t over do it as you don’t want it so hot to melt the keyboard keys or other plastic parts. Just enough to soften the adhesive.

Go slow in lifting after you wedge a screw driver under the lip of the speaker.

I don't know whether the speaker ordered from ifixit store comes with adhesive, but if it doesn't, can you advise which adhesive (ideally from ifixit store) can be used as a replacement?

@redoutnow - Sadly, iFixit doesn't offer the needed adhesive.

Apple uses hot glue and this is what I have found that matches what they use Mangocore 12pcs/lot 11mmx190mm DIY Hot Melt Glue Sticks Black Color for Hot Melt Gun
