  • With your fingers, unplug the left speaker cable from the motherboard.

Speakers are connected with solder so removing them is not possible without requiring soldering later on. I left them both connected and instead of removing the motherboard completely I just "hinged" it carefully down to facilitate the work following step 18.

Note that on some units (presumably later ones), the speakers are soldered onto the motherboard.
