    • Remove the screws highlighted using a T5 Torx driver, (A T6 will remover them but will require force and mess up the heads!)

  3. Once the phone is open some screws may remain in the back case. They are small and easily lost! Be sure to collect them up and store them in a container for re-assembly. You may also want to put the two buttons away safely as they may drop out.

    • Note the speaker, show an arrow, can be removed without further disassembly.

  4. Remove the speaker by lifting it using a screwdriver or similar tool. Note It is  only held in by adhesive tape. Take your time, especially if you are removing a donor speaker from a broken phone. If you push in, as the speaker lifts the tool will slide under the speaker damaging its surface!

    • Note: Both speakers in the phone are identical. If you mess up removing a donor speaker you get a second chance!

  5. If you are using a used donor part the adhesive tape will probably be damaged. I put the speaker in place, applied a thin strip of two part epoxy resin along its right edge. You can use silicone sealant or any other adhesive you deem safe.

    • My speaker will be more difficult to remove than if I had used silicone sealant which if flexible strong but can be cut easily. It is also more messy....
