Introduction

We will not be tearing the whole thing apart, I will just show you the easiest way to get right to the batery and the other internals.

Parts

No parts required.

Use a plastic spudger or a credit card to pop open the protective grids. You shouldn't have to exerce too much pressure, but it resistant enought in order to pull on it.

Now you can access the whole motherboard. In order to disconnect the battery (always the first thing to do when you are touching internals), disconnect the microphone before, it will be only easier.

Thanks so much! I had a broken bit of plastic inside the tube after I left my speaker in my checked luggage and it got smashed around. I followed the instructions and managed to get it out, the speaker is purring again without the annoying ass rattle!! You're a legend my friend. TY
