    • Insert a large plastic opening tool next to the Kindle's headphone jack.

    • Make sure the notch on the plastic opening tool is facing the back of the Kindle.

    • Move the plastic opening tool evenly around the Kindle, separating the two halves.

    • Be careful not to completely separate the rear cover. There are two delicate flex cables that connect the display assembly to the motherboard.

    • Set the Kindle down on the rear case.

    • Holding the display assembly near the camera, carefully open the display assembly up to about 90 degrees from the rear case.

    • These images show the Kindle laying flat. In order to prevent damage to the flex cables, keep the Kindle open at 90 degrees while disconnecting the display assembly.

    • Lift the retaining flap on the ZIF connector of the upper flex cable.

    • Gently pull the cable out of its socket.

    • This flex cable is delicate. Be careful not to crease or bend it while working.

    • Starting at the outside edge of the battery, use the flat edge of a spudger to separate the battery from the rear of the device.

    • Work carefully. Excessive force on battery may cause it to bend, break, or crack.

    • Move the spudger along each side of the battery, prying upwards with even pressure.

    • As the adhesive releases, push the spudger further underneath the battery.

    • Once half of the battery is detached, pry the other half in the same manner.

    • Remove the battery assembly from the Kindle.

    • Looking back at the Kindle before the battery was removed, locate the the two speakers on the top and bottom.

    • We will be starting with the right (bottom) speaker.

    • With a plastic opening tool, pry along the top edge of the plastic casing.

    • Prying will be difficult considering the liberal amount of adhesive used to keep the casing in place. Don't give up.

    • Inside the casing is a small rectangular silver component. This is the speaker.

    • Pay attention to the orientation of the speaker.

    • Using pliers and enough force, pull the speaker upward and out of the casing. Once again adhesive may prove difficult.

    • To get to the left speaker use a plastic opening tool and pry open the plastic casing.

    • We recommend starting at the edge furthest from the speaker because there is less adhesive.

    • Move along the edge, forcing the opening tool in further and prying the two sections apart.

    • Don't be afraid to use force as the casing is flexible.

    • Continue to move the opening tool along the edge until the entire casing is open.

    • Around the speaker is an extensive amount of adhesive (the white ribbons) and will require more force to separate.

    • Pay attention to the orientation of the speaker.

    • Once the left speaker is accessible, use your fingers or some tweezers to pull the speaker upward and out.

    • Again there will be adhesive to make the process that much more enjoyable. Who doesn't like a challenge?

Conclusión

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. Be sure to replace the speakers in the correct orientation.
