  1. Open the back battery cover
    • Open the back battery cover

  2. Unscrew the four back screws
    • Unscrew the four back screws

    • 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

    • Disconnect the ribbon cable.

    • Feed the ribbon cable through this opening. This is much easier than disconnecting from the front circuit board, which requires delicate, if not impossible maneuvers to reconnect upon reassembly.
