    Hi guys,

    I want to replace the speaker of my Bold 9900 since it sounds terrible and neither a firmware update, nor a battery pull solved the problem so I assume its a hardware problem after all.
    I've done quite a lot of reading and video watching thus far but I just can't figure out where the loudspeaker of the Bold 9900 is located. Holding the phone towards my ears while playing music suggests that its pretty much at the bottom of the phone, somewhere close to the space key. I don't want to break my phone that's the reason I'd like to see how much work it would be and then give it a try.

    Any help or comments highly appreciated!

    Here's a picture, maybe someone can see where the speaker could possibly be.

    I've seen all these videos, the screenshot I posted is out of one, hence I'm more than familiar with how the 9900 looks from the inside. However, in none of these videos anyone ever mentions the loudspeaker and if its accessible/replaceable. Neither says anyone in the post you referred to.

    So the question remains, has anyone ever replaced the loudspeaker from a Bold 9900?

    I disassembled my phone now and as expected couldn't figure out how to replace the speaker. It looks like its fix in some sort of box, no screw or anything to open it up. I Didn't wanna break anything so I gave up at some point. If anyone ever managed to replace the big speaker (not the ear speaker), please give me some help here!

    I previously managed to pop the old speaker out and replace it but there was a small orange metal film bit that looked damaged so the speaker still was muffled. I bought the above part and it worked fine speaker was already attached.

    Oh boy, and I got an original speaker shipped from Canada for 20$. Never thought they sell the whole chassis. I guess that's the best way to go then, thank you!
