Excellent instructional only addition is to be careful with the rubber pad and adhesive tape do not use sharp tool that could get between adhesive and rubber pad… Lay pad on a clean dust dirt fuzz free surface as you will need this to re-adhere to the base when I did mine It was so adhered I thought I was doing something wrong. No worry with patience and persistence it does reluctantly come off.

Additional opportunity is to repair Dings in the speaker grill. Mine was damaged when I packed it under seat of my scooter closed seat and put nasty ugly deep ding in grill. (I'm sure I'm not the first that has had this happen It dings pretty easily) I used a STEAL cased AA battery (LIke Duracell or ???) to roll it out smooth again slowly rolling back and forth on oak smooth workbench with fairly heavy pressure. Almost got it back to original condition with just a minor deviation in the surface.

Again Love your instructional and have great appreciation for your contribution to others.

On re-assembly use finesse, brute force or a bigger hammer is rarely beneficial with delicate electronics, Upon re-installing grill enclosure take care sliding over charging port bluetooth activation button and input port this utilizes a ribbon flex circuit that can be damaged easily if alignment is slightly off and can damage your device rendering it useless and requiring another repair. Flex the enclosure bowing it outward to clear the protruding buttons and assuring clearance to slide into place. Also in above note Red Black speaker wires. And assure that they are in phase. Red (Positive) + and Black (Negative) - as this could very slightly effect the output accuracy of the system. (Much more critical on larger speaker systems) Maybe obvious to some but surprising how many are not aware of this.
