Make sure you take your time and that all cables for display assembly are in the right order.
Went to APPLE store in Miami Beach on Lincoln Rd, for appointment to check why Siri doesn't work (iPhone 6 Plus ). After they run few tests , Genius Girl said that mic is fading and phone needs to be replaced. I was out of warranty 3 months and they wanted to charge me 329$ plus tax and i said no way. Came home and continue doing research about Siri problems. And I found out that Front Facing Camera can cause that problem. So i took on my own risk to fix it, cause most of the repair stores here in Miami is not for trusting.
I got everything in perfect condition, and i proceeded with surgery :D
Surgery succeed patient died ! LOL
Little joke :D
Everything got smooth. My phone is working now without problem :)
Be patient and follow the instructions !
10 days out of warranty my front microphone died.
The repair was relatively easy though one has to be so careful when removing the ribbon connectors. They can easily bend on removal. I disconnected the battery before removing the display cables (not shown on the guide). Reassembly is tricky. The new assembly cables need to be bent and folded back to match the original and the components have to be carefully slotted into place before holding the speaker cover in place and inserting the screws.
What caught me out is a very thin, tiny self-adhesive film over the microphone that I did not even see. After completing the repair the microphone was almost completely muffled (unusable). I eventually repeated the entire process and discovered the plastic film (now stuck to the speaker grill rather than the microphone). After peeling it off the microphone works perfectly. Success!
The problem that I was having was Siri could not hear me. After searching online, I found that the issue is that the sensor cable and mic were bad.
The repair was very straight forward.
Biggest advice I have is to take it slow and work in good light.
