My Problem

both iphones were nearly 3 years old so their batteries could no longer hold charges. One of them has had a bad speaker for nearly 2 years, the owner was too lazy to go to apple care about it.

My Fix

Took about an hour.

My Advice

Nah

My Problem

My Girlfriends' iPhone 5 loudspeaker was broken. Since she usually uses speakerphone when on the phone, that had to change!

My Fix

The repair went well, The biggest problem is how tiny those screws are. My fingers aren't what you'd call dainty...

My Advice

Get a good magnet mat. Maybe one that has small raised divisions (or make it yourself) keeping the screws straight was by far the hardest part. Plenty of light is also good. The spudger is a must, and patience...

My Problem

my speaker and rocker volume down button were non-functional

My Fix

It went great. The guides were outstanding, perfect actually. I will say that the guide didn't really prepare me to realize just HOW SMALL everything is in there.... In the future, one of those lighted magnifying lenses would be amazingly helpful (but not necessary). like this one: http://www.mrlight.com/products/Bargain_...

My Advice

go for it. Don't toss your phone out, FIX IT!

My Problem

My lovely wife dropped her iPhone 5 in the sink while the faucet was open and eventually the loud speaker stopped working. The battery was not lasting long either. We try to buy a refurbished unit at Apple but they did not have them.

My Fix

I used iFixit's step by step guidance and watched the youtube video a couple of times. Everything went well with no complications. The hardest step for me was pulling the battery. I had to be careful when rotating the logic board to not damage the camera flash. Also I had to be very careful when removing the loud speaker assembly because is glued to the case.

My Advice

I adopted the concept of the magnetic pad you show on the video. I printed a large picture of the iPhone internals on a letter size paper. Then I placed the printout on top of large picture fridge magnets. As I removed the screws and parts, I placed them on the corresponding location in the picture. It helped a lot to keep things organized.

I would update the last step of the instructions to mention that the "ribbon looking" part with two washers and glued to the loud speaker has to be removed and placed on the new unit.

My Problem

the factory speaker was damaged

My Fix

I followed the instructions provided by ifixit and replaced the speaker. I had a little trouble with the display screen adapters but after rechecking the cables, all was good.

My Advice

Be patient when working on this phone. Every time there is less space for us to work on them so we have to be patient and careful! :)

My Problem

My wifes iphone 5 loudspeaker was blowm

My Fix

Took less than ten mins to replace and the new part fit perfectly

My Advice

Just be gently with the ribbon cables

My Problem

Le speaker était défecteux. Plus aucun son pendant la lecture de videos ou lors d'une connexion Facetime

My Fix

En suivant les videos step-by-step sur Youtube, le remplacement était simple et rapide.

Temps estimé : +-20 minutes

My Advice

Le tout est de bien faire attention à ne pas perdre les vis minuscules. Il faut effectuer la réparation dans un endroit fort lumineux, afin d'y voir clair.

Le son avec le nouveau speaker est encore meilleur que le son d'origine. Un réel plaisir.

My Problem

Changed the speaker with a new one.

My Fix

Very easy to change, just remove two screws in the outside and 3 screws form the speaker.

My Advice

Is not neccesary to remove the display.

My Problem

A year after washing my iphone 5 (and having it all work just fine- except some camera smudges) the external speaker stopped working.

My Fix

So- I watched a few hours of YouTube and thought- !&&*, I can do this. And yes- I can. In fact- anybody can. Super easy.

I abandoned the iFixit steps and went straight to the speaker area. Found a YouTUbe video that covered the short version- It went great. No issues at all.

My Advice

From the one time I opened my phone- I'd say do the short version.

Here's the video I found most helpful.

It's like 5 steps vs Ifixit's 25 steps. And- it's working.

I also need to replace the rear camera but that's a bit deeper so I'm holding off for now.

I think there are cheaper parts out there than iFixit but it all went so well, I'd use them again.
