Introduction

In this guide you will remove the back cover of the device and locate the two speakers inside. You will then remove the speakers by unsoldering them from motherboard and then replace them.

Because this task requires the use of a soldering iron, prior experience with soldering/desoldering will be beneficial.

Should you have two photos? Is it clear where you removed the speaker from?

Should you note here that the speaker has wires that will also need to be removed?

Do you ever mention the tape?

    • These wires connect the speakers to the motherboard. They are the thinnest wires.

    • If you're unfamiliar with soldering or desoldering check out this guide.

    • Be sure to wear protective eye wear. Also, keep in mind that the soldering iron will become extremely hot.

Again, you are telling what to do, not how to do it.
