Follow this guide to remove or replace the right speaker in an iPad 7 for both Wi-Fi only and Cellular models.
Be very careful when you isolate the battery using a battery blocker. The battery contacts are easily damaged, resulting in irreversible damage. If you choose to complete the guide without isolating the battery, avoid using metal tools except when completely necessary (like when removing screws) to prevent shorting the battery and damaging sensitive circuit components.
Some of the instructions in this guide were taken from a previous model. There are small differences between models, but the overall procedure is very similar.
You'll need replacement adhesive in order to complete this repair.
