Before removing the host plate, face the feet of the speaker to you. The wiring allows for minimal access to the inner components. Use the spudger to remove the speaker host plate. Insert the metal tip in the seam between the host plate and the shell.

  • Use the spudger to remove the speaker host plate. Insert the metal tip in the seam between the host plate and the shell.

  • Be very careful when pulling the speaker host plate (described in the next step) as there are wiring connected to the host plate. This wiring is soldered to the plate and to the shell of the device. The wires are flexible and you can still open the device as shown in the second picture.

  • Center the spudger on the top of the device, this is furthest from the wiring, in wiggling the spudger under the plate, the plate should move up and out of the shell, you can finish lifting the plate away with your fingers.

Pull the motherboard out of the speaker slowly, gently flip it upside down to find the wire that soldered to the ceiling of the speaker. Use a hot soldering iron and detach the wire.
