This is a battery replacement / teardown guide for the SRS-XB22 Bluetooth speaker. I couldn’t find a guide anywhere on the internet for the speaker; as I had to fix my wife’s speaker, I thought I’d do a guide on how I tore it down. I hope this helps you.

    • Firstly, you need to pry the speaker grill away from the speaker.

    • Use a spudger/guitar pick to prise up each end of the grill.

    • You are trying to lift a clip at either end. (circled in red)

    • Once lifted at both ends, gently pull the grill forwards.

    • Starting at the ends of the speaker, prise the back case away from the main unit.

    • Work your way along the front of the case.

    • Once the front in freed, work you way along the edges, freeing the whole case.

    • There is A LOT of double sided tape between the outer and inner case. It requires a lot of work to remove it.

    • The case is one piece. Although it looks as if it splits at the rear, it is sealed together.
