Thread: ear piece replacement
08-27-2009, 12:34 PM #1ear piece replacement
my earpiece is broken so i neeed to replace it. i already got the part to replace it with and all i need help with is how to remove the metal bracket that is over the earpiece.
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.

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!
