Introduction

Fix the lights on the top of your Google Home with a new LED Board.

This guide will teach you how to take apart your Google Home to remove a faulty LED Board and replace it with a new one.

  1. Removing the lid too quickly could cause you to tear the interconnect cable that attaches the base to the top of the lid. Pull off the Google Home’s magnetically attached base and set it aside. Using a Torx T6 screwdriver head, unscrew the four 1.7mm Torx screws deep in the speaker recess so that you can remove the lid.
