    • Use a metal spudger to remove the rubber control panel at the top end of the speaker.

    You also need to remove the four screws and plastic plate beneath this rubber control panel or the “stubborn cowling” won’t come off.

  3. Time to break through the Tap's exterior.  The only way in is to disassemble the  Tap from the outside. First to go is the Tap's stretchy fabric wrap. Unroll the stretchy fabric from the sticky cowling.

    • First to go is the Tap's stretchy fabric wrap. Unroll the stretchy fabric from the sticky cowling.

    • After removing the stretchy fabric completely, the adhesive cowling remains.

  4. Next up: removing the stubborn cowling.
    • Next up: removing the stubborn cowling.

    • This step requires many pry tools, and even more patience.

    • The key is sliding the cowling over the microphone, Bluetooth, and power buttons.

    • Progress! Once the cowling is off only a few screws remain until we reach the interior.

    The Microphone button comes off easy enough if pried off from the side - the cowl slides off a lot easier after Microphone button is removed as there is only the Bluetooth & Power button to deal with.

  5. Use a pair of tweezers to remove the speaker button.
    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the speaker button.

    • Since the button is round, it is best to hold it steady and wiggle it in a slow motion until it comes loose.

  6. Once you remove the buttons its safe to pull apart the Amazon Tap. Here you will find a standard 18650 Lithium Ion cell, battery.

    How do I get the green circuit board lifted up to push the end of the battery plug into the little socket to hook up the battery so I can reassemble the unit? I took the two little screws out for the power buttons and lifted it up but I can’t get the end of the battery terminal into the little plug because it’s underneath the green circuit board somewhere

Where does this leave us?? All taken apart and repaired, but with no way to purchase parts to replace the ones ripped apart during removal, nor the skills to put them on looking attractive with near the skills of the Chinese who probably build one of these things every 1.457 minutes at the factory!

Thank you. I was able to replace the battery. Your step by step guide was excellent. Though I could not fix the tip panel correctly I can operate its functions hands free. If show me how to fix top panel I WILL be appreciate

I could not complete number 4. So frustrating. I don’t know what I did wrong.

I have to call bolshevik on this! The battery is obviously not meant to be replaced. At least not on my model (PW3840KL). You must nearly destroy your TAP to get to the step of replacing the battery. Good luck getting it back together! The author also left out many steps, including the removal of 10 screws prior to “pull apart the Amazon TAP” in Step 6. Do yourself a favor, throw your device in the trash and order something from another supplier (tell Amazon to STICK IT!).

Dang it. The Tap was one of the better Echo devices. Little wonder Amazon obsoleted it in favor of the plug in models.
