Ok, I used the PC Card Cage giude and it worked perfectly! Thanks for the help.


Glad you got the problem solved.


Did you have to break the plastic to free the speakers? It seems like it's all glued together in there pretty hardcore.

Here's a start on locating them:

I'm not finding a guide or parts listed anywhere but take a look at this guide through step 8: PowerBook G4 Titanium DVI Logic Board Replacement

At the bottom of the logic board next to the case you'll see two white connectors to the logic board. I believe those are to the speakers which should be able to just lift straight out. If you want, I'll see if I have one of these machines for parts and see if I can pull the speakers with ease.

How can one remove the speakers? It seems like glued-together plastic hades.


Okay, so I decided to tackle speaker replacement, as my NOS PowerBook G4 Titanium top case (ebay) had speakers that were apparently DOA. It was a little disheartening, but here's how I removed the speaker assemblies from both sides of the top case: First, I used a small pocket knife wedged slightly underneath the plastic casing of the speaker assembly and the titanium of the top case. I was careful to not try to force too much movement too quickly, as I didn't want to break the ~20-year-old plastic speaker assemblies (note that one portion of one speaker assembly *did* separate, but it was easy to just push it back together). Eventually, I was able to free the DOA speakers from the new top case and swap them with the old speakers from my replaced top case assembly. I was scared to try a heat gun or some sort of adhesive remover to soften the glue, as these Titanium PowerBook's had notoriously fragile finishing.


@toniwonkanobi Hi Anthony, did you use Mayer's suggestion above (logic board replacement up to step 8)? I have some DOA speakers as well and this thread is about the only one I can find discussing speaker replacement. Do you have any photos of the removal process that worked for you? I have a partsbook (eBay) on the way to harvest some new speakers (along with some other parts). I would appreciate any further tips or photos of the speaker replacement you might have. Thank you!
