The description up top alludes to having to remove the logic board + fans to replace the speakers, but that doesn't seem to be the case in the step by step. Can anyone who's completed this speaker replacement clear that up?

Hi thardee, thanks for pointing that out. You're right, the logic board and fans don't need to be removed to replace the speakers. I've removed that section from the description.
