    • Remove the backing and the wire mesh microphone casing.

    • NOTE: The Speaker is connected to the motherboard and adhered to the back cover, so take caution when opening. I cannot foretell the chaos created if you break the speaker wire.

    • Gently pull apart main plate from front cover.

    • Also note that there is a ribbon cable connecting the front circuit board to the motherboard
