    • Gently pinch the white tab and pull the speaker cable out of its socket.

    • Don't pull on the cables.

    • The speaker connector is located directly underneath the battery.

    • If you can't get the speaker cable out by hand, use the point of a spudger to push on alternating sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket.

    • It may take a lot of alternating before the connector comes out.

    • To reconnect the cable, align the connector and use a spudger or clean fingernail to push it fully into the socket.

    • Don't push on the cables themselves, or you may damage the connector.
