ℹ️️ This loudspeaker is installed on many models of this manufacturer, and it is quite simple to change. To replace the loudspeaker, you need to heat its surface to soften the glue base gently, 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.
