    Remove the screen assembly. The proximity sensor/earpiece speaker are controlled by the same cable. All you do is pop it off of the screen frame with a small flathead screwdriver, takes 10 seconds.

    Dont have any pics.

    The cable "clips" in, so you need to pry from the top or bottom (but that requires placing the screwdriver to the side) to unclip it. If you look at it, its obvious.
