    • Be careful not to deform or puncture the battery.

    • Pry up and remove the battery.

    • The top and bottom frame section hold very tight to the mid frame. It is possible to pull them off with your hands. If you're not able to do so, use the following removal procedure:

    • Use the flat end of a spudger and apply pressure to one of the corners of the frame section until you create a small gap.

Step 5 isn’t quite right. You can pry the speaker up like that, but you need to pull on the speaker to remove it, not pry it up. Pulling it out is difficult without removing more of the framing. I’d advise extreme caution removing the speaker like they have illustrated without pulling up more of the framing around the outside of the phone first. It’s more screws to deal with, but it’s better than breaking anything.

Just completed. New speaker seemed to seed nicely. Upon restarting phone no sound emitting from any speaker. Reinstalled faulty speaker and same results. Reinstalled new speaker and did a reset of factory settings, still no sound emitting from music, notifications, etc. This tutorial suggested straight forward plug and play. Disappointed.
