Broken mute switch

by bsnell1

My Problem

The silver piece broke of the mute switch rendering it useless and the phone can't be switched to vibrate.

My Fix

Repair took about an hour. I went slowly and steadily through the teardown.

My Advice

PERFECT! Take your time and be methodical and it is pretty straight forward to get as deep as you want into the iPhone internals. This repair requires the removal of a fair bit of the internals to properly reach and remove the switch.
