How To Replace Your Motorola Defy Earpiece

If you are an an owner of one of the early versions of the Motorola Defy, then you may be familiar with the earpiece problems that have been widely reported.

It seems that these early models have been seen to suffer from the earpiece failing after just a few months of use. XDA forum member wizard123 was one of these owners, and has posted a tutorial on how to resolve the issue by replacing the earpiece yourself.

For the step by step guide and photographs, head on over to the modification post.
