Introduction

This guide will show you how to remove the loudspeaker from your Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra. The loudspeaker needs to be replaced if sound is no longer emitted from your phone. A heat gun or hairdryer is needed to open the back panel, which can become hot and potentially damage the phone. In addition, a T5 screwdriver is needed to remove screws, and a spudger is used to lift and remove components of the phone.

  • Use a hair dryer to heat each corner of the phone.

  • Alternate heating each corner for a minute to loosen the adhesive binding the back cover to the phone.

  • Don't heat one area for too long; the phone may get damaged from overheating.

Consider saying “loosen” instead of “soften” so that steps 2 and 3 use the same terms. Somebody may not know that heating the glue will loosen it, and so they will be confused reading “once the adhesive is loosened” in step 3.
