Follow this guide to remove and replace the bottom loudspeaker for the Mate 10.

The back cover held in place with a very strong perimeter adhesive. During removal, the adhesive may rip out parts of the coating from the glass back cover, leaving behind patches of clear glass.

Some images may show the phone with the battery removed. You do not need to remove the battery to replace the loudspeaker.

  1. Heat an iOpener and apply it to the bottom edge of the phone for two minutes. Re-heat the iOpener as needed. A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone. While you wait, note the location of the adhesive holding the back cover in place.

  2. Place a suction cup near the bottom edge of the back cover, on the right side (opposite the speaker grille) of the USB-C charging port, above the microphone hole. If your back cover is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the back cover. Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap.

    • Due to the adhesive's strength, this is very difficult and may take multiple attempts. If you can't create a gap, re-apply heat and try again.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

  3. Slide the pick along the bottom edge and around the bottom-left corner, slicing through the adhesive. If the adhesive feels tacky and difficult to slice, re-apply heat to the edge and try again. Leave an opening pick in the seam to prevent the edge from re-sealing.

  4. Apply a heated iOpener to the left edge of the phone. Use an opening pick to slice through the adhesive on the left edge of the phone. The adhesive is very thick in some areas. Sustained exposure to heat will help weaken the stubborn adhesive. Take your time, and apply heat liberally.

    • Use an opening pick to slice any remaining adhesive.

    • Remove the back cover.

    • During reassembly, this is a good point to power on your phone and test all functions before sealing it up. Be sure to power your phone back down completely before you continue working.

  7. Before you install a replacement back cover, be sure to remove all traces of perimeter adhesive from the phone frame. If you are re-using the back cover, carefully remove all traces of adhesive from the back cover.

    • If you are re-using the back cover, carefully remove all traces of adhesive from the back cover.

    • The glass back cover is fragile and prone to cracking. Do not apply uneven pressure to the back cover as you clean.

    • You may pull up chunks of the cover's color coating as you remove the adhesive. To reduce the chances of this occurring, apply heat or high concentration isopropyl alcohol to the adhesive to weaken it.

  8. If your replacement back cover did not come with a flash diffuser or camera bezel, you will need to transfer them from your old cover to the new one. Apply a heated iOpener directly over the bezels for a minute.

    • Apply a heated iOpener directly over the bezels for a minute.

    • Use an opening pick to slice around the flash diffuser to loosen the adhesive.

    • The flash diffuser is made of plastic and cracks easily. Be sure to slice around the flash completely before you pry it off.

    • Use an opening tool to pry up and remove the camera bezel.

    • Transfer the parts to your replacement cover.

    • One screw lies beneath a white sticker. Remove the sticker.

    • Insert the point of a spudger underneath the right edge of the plastic bracket and pry up slightly to loosen the shield.

  10. Grasp the the lower edge of the plastic bracket with your fingers and  lift the edge up slightly. Pull the plastic bracket away from the top edge of the phone. Slowly peel the black heat dissipation layer away from the phone. It is held in place with small patches of adhesive.

  12. Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the wide interconnect flex cable from its motherboard socket. To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.
