    • Remove the single 2.2 mm Phillips screw inserted horizontally into the side of the optical drive.

    Finding this screw wasn't easy

  5. Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the rear speaker connector up off the logic board.
    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the rear speaker connector up off the logic board.

    • Pry up underneath the wires.

    • This connector is very delicate and easily broken.

    Step 10. If you are having difficulty with the small connector, insert something thin and long underneath it (preferably not metal, as you can scratch the motherboard that way). There is some space under it that you can use to get it loose.

    Remember, the amount of force required to loosen it is very small. Take a break if necessary if you are getting frustrated.

    I would recommend not removing this as part of this step. You can easily slide the drive under the speaker wire -- just lift it from the side with two screws carefully.

    i just broke the connector! Be very carefully here. Needed to sold the speaker cabels then...

    I broke it, obviously... I tried to put it back; it seems to be solid enought, but the speaker now sounds really bad(low and noisy-undefined). Any ideas on how to fix it?

    PLEASE TAKE THIS STEP AWAY!!!!!

    I now have the same as the rest of the loyalty of Ifixit’s…. I glued it and have the crappy tinny low volume sounds, thanks

    Same here. I broke it too, tried to glue it back and have sound, luckily, but very bad quality. THIS STEP IS UNNECESSARY!

    Jens Lubbadeh - Contestar

    This step has been very badly explained. I too have now broken my speaker connection. As others have said, you're just trying to lift the cable up NOT "PRY THE SPEAKER CONNECTOR UP OFF THE LOGIC BOARD" as instructed here! Doing this will break the soldered connection to the board. Now I need to take it to a professional for a solder repair.

    Hi There, broke the connector.

    I could not remove the cable even with the broken off connector.

    Soldered it back on, low wattage and very little tin needed.

    When putting the drive back in, I found that the loudspeaker cable could easily fit under the drive holder.

    So, in future in case of problems with the drive, no more broken off connectors..

    Do not try to remove that connector ! It is too much fragile. As other users did, I broke it … And I don’t know if it will be possible to repair it.

    Jean-Pierre Giovanni - Contestar

    Same here, I was very careful, but the connector broke off, of course. Tried to glue it back, but now the sound it very low, noisy, almost useless. Any idea to fix it? :)
