    • Using a heat gun, heat around the edges and seperate the glass from the front cover. Work from bottom up.

    • Note the digitizer cable runs through a small hole behind the lcd, in the top of the phone.

    • When the glass is seperated, carefully lift the lcd a bit, to get the digitizer cable through the hole.

    • To protect the lcd from residue and fingerprints, cover it with masking tape, until you are ready to seal the glass to the cover.

    • When you have prepared new adhesive tape and the digitizer cable has been pulled through the hole to the backside of the phone.

    • Remove the masking tape from the lcd, and using some canned air, blow away dust and close the glass cover.

    • Finally reverse the disassembly and enjoy.

Hello sorry for my late reply.

I haven't had the chance to replace the loudspeaker, but earpiece is a square block, that you can pry out and replace, after you have seperated the front from the back.

Dissasembly will most likely break waterproof. Haven't tested.
