[title] Speaker Panel Removal
[* icon_caution] '''''''''''BEFORE REMOVING SPEAKER PANEL:Note that a ribbon cable connecting the panel to the computer’s motherboard is present. Removing the speaker panel too forcefully could damage this cable and/or its connection, possibly causing severe, irreversible damage to the computer.''''''
[* black] Once the screw has been removed from the left-hand side of the computer, the purple speaker panel can be removed. Carefully lift the left side of the panel and unhook the right side and remove the panel a couple inches from the computer, taking care not to pull beyond the length of the ribbon cable that secures it to the motherboard.
[* icon_note] If you do not wish to replace the speakers, proceed to ''Step 7.''
