Using a soldering gun, apply heat where the speaker wires meet the motherboard. Heat the solder around both the black and red wires until they easily slide away.

  • Be careful not to heat the motherboard too long so to avoid damaging other components. Also, care to avoid liquefying the solder on any near by components.
