    • To completely remove the top portion, disconnect the speaker from the motherboard using the blue plastic opening tool.

    • While disconnecting be sure to not use too much force as these two parts are meant to become disconnected.

    I would imagine any small guage wire would make a good replacement. Like an ear bud wire or the like.

    I used these guides to help me get the Clip 2 apart and found that my problem was a bad solder joint at the speaker connector. Apparently the manufacturer noticed it too because there was a (grease pencil) circle around the holes on the bottom side of the motherboard and their fix was to hot glue the connector to the board. I re-soldered the pins and it works perfectly.
