To remove the front grate of the speaker grab a metal spudger and go to the back corner of the device where the front panel curves around the device. Insert the spudger and ply apart the corner until clips release from panel. Repeat for the other side of the grate. When all clips are released pull grate off from the front of device When working with electronics, it's important to choose a tool that's ESD-safe to avoid accidental damage to the device. The metal spudger is great when you need serious prying power, but the regular black nylon spudger or a plastic opening tool should be used whenever possible.

Locate the slit on the back of the device and the board will be located there. Remove board from slit by using tweezers.

Once board is removed, locate silver component on the  board. This is the charging port.  Remove the charging port. To put it back on the board you need to solder the component back onto the board.

Ich bin bis Schritt 3 gekommen und wollte das Gerät komplett zerlegen nach dem ich die hinteren 8 Schrauben auch heraus gedreht hatte aber beide Gehäuseteile ließen sich nicht trennen. Was kann ich tun ?
