Start with the back half, this will expose TWO Screws that need to be removed before lifting the front half.

Yes, the fact needs to be added that two screws need to also be removed to get the cover off. One side snaps off but the other is attached with two screws.

Gently pull back the edges of the case rotating along the hinge opposite the opening seam illustrated in the second photo. Plastic snaps hold the cover in place.

Careful with this step, my JBL Xtreme case was also held in place by wo little srews !

It feels like you are “breaking” the cover, but in fact it seems to have a kind of “bending point” near the top of the cover by the exterior controls. Watch for the two screws to remove.

This was the most difficult part for me. The screws are pretty tight, I needed a larger screwdriver to get them out.

Once the screws have been removed, the bass radiator will easily lift free. Both radiators are identical. Repeat the above steps on the opposite radiator if necessary. Both radiators are identical. Repeat the above steps on the opposite radiator if necessary.

Locate the three 9.7mm Phillips head screws inside the zipper compartment and unscrew them. Lift the zipper panel out of the speaker. The side of the panel opposite the screws is held in place by small clamps. The panel should easily lift free from the device, but may require gentle prying.

The screw on the left is tough to get at.

Under the zipper panel are eight more 9.75mm Phillips head screws. Unscrew them and carefully lift the battery cover. Be careful not to damage the small white ribbon cable which connects the battery cover to the rest of the device.

These screws are also very tight and easily stripped if not careful. Use a bigger screwdriver.

Locate the cable illustrated in this picture. Gently unplug the cable from the motherboard.

Needed to use needle nose pliers to reach this plug.

Note which way the plug goes in as it could get turned around.

Carefully lift the battery free of the device, threading the cable through the hole in the case as you do so.

What model of battery do you need if replacing? Thanks

sean - Reply

I couldn't find the battery specification anywhere in the Internet, so I removed it, easily following the well presented instructions above. The battery has two cells. The label on each cell says Greatpower, model no. GSP0931134, 7.4 volts, 5000 mah, 37Wh, made in China. Overall dimensions are 145mm x 32mm x 19mm (145mm includes a small electronic board where cables from the board connect to the plug.) After an Amazon and Google search, I'm no closer to a replacement. At least the reassembled Xtreme works without a battery with external power. JBL is of no help, either. I'll be looking model airplane stores, as they have every LiPo battery imaginable. In summary, the JBL Xtreme is a short lived unsupported product.

this &&^&^$^ jbl costumer support service is charging me $110 for battery replacement, and a $30 service charge, it cost half of the speaker price,

christian cometa - Reply

Same here in Hungary.

I’ve got a battery issue (a full charge lasts only about 3-4 hours of playback on mid volume) after a little more than 1 year of usage…

110 US dollars for replacement. Nonsense!

It’s interesting that these are all 5,000 mAh. JBL lists the capacity on their website and on the packaging as 10,000 mAh Capacity.

Does that mean we need to buy two 5000mAh GSP0931134 replacement cells?

The battery works great for me. I am no expert, but this guide made it easy. I added some info to help other people in the future. My JBL Extreme is cordless again for 10 hours at a time! Thanks!

I found new battery at Battery Clerk.com. http://www.batteryclerk.com/products/jbl...
