The two speakers are pried them from the rear case. Simple spring contact connections make for easy repairs.
Both the left and right flex cable assemblies are lightly adhered to the rear case. They are relatively modular making for cheaper replacement.
The left component cable comprises: volume and power switches, speaker contacts, and soldered vibrator.
The right flex cable (not pictured) is home to the microUSB port and right speaker contacts. A separate USB port is great for repairability, as it is a vital, high-wear component.
The independent headphone jack is not adhered to the rear case. Rather, it is held snug in the rear case by a spring-loaded tab. You can pinch the tab and pull to remove it, then back the jack component out of its slot in the case to remove it.
