Step 7. Loudspeaker removal

Remove the loudspeaker assembly with antennas.

ℹ️️ This loudspeaker is installed on a large number of models of this manufacturer and it is quite simple to change. To replace the loudspeaker, you need to gently heat its surface to soften the glue base, but a new one - be sure to glue it! Otherwise, when playing sounds and music, the speaker will rattle and make extraneous sounds.

⚠️ It is important while reassembling, checking the spring contacts on the board, and the contact pads on the cover match and touch. Otherwise, signal loss or signal may be quite weak.

ℹ️️ Be sure to note the location of the screws before disassembling. When assembling the device, screwing the screw in the wrong place may damage the device or its part. To avoid damage, the removed screws and individual pieces (as gaskets or brackets) must be laid out in the appropriate order, or the screws and their holes in the phone must be marked with colored markers.

Step 8. Remove the inter-board cable

Pry up the connectors and remove the inter-board cable.

⚠️ Do not pull on the cable or pry it with a sharp tool, the connectors are pretty weak and break easily, or the cable falls out of the end (lug).

Carefully, preferably from the edge, disconnect the connectors, and remove the inter-board cable connecting the mainboard to the daughterboard (also known as the sub-board).

⚠️ Be careful when removing the cables from the connectors, the cables are pretty thin, and it is easy enough to break them or damage the contact tracks inside.

ℹ️️ An arrow on the FFC cable (flexible flat cable) indicates its correct position.

ℹ️️ The board contains a charging port (Micro USB), microphone, vibration motor, spring contacts for the speaker, and an antenna unit.

⚠️ It is not necessary to insert the tool under the board when removing the sub-board. Internal components could be damaged.
