    • The board is now held in by vinyl tape (black) and two ribbon cables

    • If you are just removing broken plug pieces, do not disconnect these ribbon cables - be careful not to damage them! Instead, simply lift the board enough to poke tweezers or similar through the plug to dislodge broken bits

    • If replacing the plug, disconnect the ribbon cables (one is soldered in place) from the circuit board and replace the board

Conclusion

Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly - no surprises. Optionally, replace your ear cushions, pads, or double sided tape in the process.
