You should have clearly told us not to use the tweezers in such a way as to touch the bottom side of that speaker box. I accidentally touched the other side with my tweezer while removing which caused a hole in the thin metal membrane. Now my speaker works but has an incredible amount of distortion. You MUST put a warning for these things. Now I have to buy a new speaker module.

The warning should have told us to touch only the plastic black parts with the pointy end of the tweezers
