    do i have to remove the entire digitizer set up and separate it from the glass? i got as far as removing the LCD and i thought i just pop the ribbon and metal bracket out but i was wrong. any help is appreciated.

    THANKS

    Yes! You have to remove the digitizer to get the speaker out. Its mounted on the screen frame.

    Make sure you get those digitizer 3M double sided tapes made for the 3G iphone before you begin.

    Use a heatgun and go slow FTW!
