Pretty much, there's another cable to disconnect, but we have a whole guide for the right speaker, too! Best of luck!

Sam Goldheart -

Hi! Are the L/R speakers compatible with the 13" Early 2015 models?

Great guide. I was able to dismantle the speaker and fixed the blown left speaker. Fit it back and it worked. Now, i’ll do that for the right speaker.
