Where can I find the part my dot won’t connect and I have been going crazy trying to find the motherboard

I wish to recommend not removing the adhesive layer if you plan to reassemble this Echo Dot. I would suggest poking holes to reach the four screws instead. Then reassembly can reuse the same adhesive layer.
