Insert a plastic opening tool in the small crevasse between the screen and the back. Pry the screen away from the back panel. Repeat this on each edge of the device.

  • We found it helpful to leave multiple plastic opening tools wedged in the crevasse to prevent it from closing.

  • This requires heavy force. The back of the device is attached with adhesive. If the back panel is too hard to remove, use the iOpener.

  • Remove the four 3 mm Phillips screws that hold down the speaker.

  • These screws are very small so make sure to keep track of them. You can use iFixit's Pro Magnetic Project Mat to help.

On the VK810 Model you have to watch out for the antenna wire that runs along and is attached to the speaker by the means of a metal wire clip.

What I would recommend is detaching the antenna wire from the top of the device then gently remove it from the clip.

Then remove the speaker.

On a side note does anyone know where to buy the little ant wire that runs across the speaker?
