Thanks for the manual! Easy repair this way.

The JBL Charge 2 I have only needs the rear screen to be taken off. Once removed, just unscrew the battery holder plate. No need to unscrew the bass speakers. The battery plate is pretty well protected against water entering. You have to remove some silicone caulking to take out the power plug. My speaker takes the “New” Charge 2 battery.
