    • Heat softens the adhesive securing the display, making it easier to open.

  5. Opening the display on the 6s Plus separates a thin strip of adhesive around the perimeter of the display. If you prefer to replace the adhesive, have a set of new adhesive strips ready before you continue. It's possible to complete the repair without replacing the adhesive, and you probably won't notice any difference in functionality.

It is possible to perform this repair without separating the display from the back, and without removing the logic board (which means you need not remove the camera, cellular antenna cabling, audio cabling, and other components). I carefully completed steps 1-15, 38-39, 50-52, and 54-60. It's also not necessary to disconnect the WiFi diversity cable from the logic board . This saves a lot of time and greatly reduces the risk of damaging delicate parts.

I second Mark's comment. In fact, if you are inexperienced with repairing small electronics, I highly advise against removing (or even touching) the logic board, as it is certainly the most expensive part, and among the most easily damaged.

Agree with the other commenters. It would be insane to perform all of these repair steps for just the loudspeaker. Press the back button in your browser and watch the Loudspeaker repair video, not this ridiculous guide. Or use this guide and after removing the display, skip to step 50. This is like taking the engine out of your car to change the wipers.
