iPhone 4 Earpiece Speaker Replacement

40 minutes - 2 hours


My Problem

Audio quality from the earpiece speaker was terrible.


My Fix

Used the repair guides at the speaker replacement went perfectly.

Only to find out the issue was likely caused by 4? Years of pocket lint, earwax and goo buildup in the speaker grille.

My Advice

Replace the speaker.

It's cheap and sounds GREAT.

But also take the time to clean the speaker grille.

You should be able to shine a light though that grille (speaker removed) and see light I saw.... A potato.

It was pretty bad
