    • Remove both end caps by putting a plastic opening tool in the center of the seam. Work around the edges to pry the end caps off completely.

    • Due to interior clips holding the end caps in place, use caution when applying force.

    • Turn the Jambox upside down. Peel the indicated rubber tabs off, using a plastic opening tool if necessary.

    • You may want to only take the tabs half way off to avoid re-gluing when reassembling.

    • Remove the three T6, 7.0 mm screws under each rubber tab.

    • Because the screws are a different length, set the screws aside.

    • With the Jawbone logo facing towards you and with correct orientation, place the Jambox with the left end cap facing upward.

    • Unscrew indicated T6 9.7 mm screws.

    • Gently loosen the tabs from their anchor points so the bottom may be removed.

    • Flip the Jambox so the other end cap is facing up. The USB cable is on this side (metal grounding clip, indicated in orange). Repeat the above two steps.

    • Pry up the bottom panel by lifting from the device.

    • Pull the bottom up. This may take a bit of force as the bottom is glued to device.

    • Once removed, the battery will now be visible.

    • Before unscrewing, take a picture of the top view. That way, when you're reassembling the device, you'll know the orientation of the metal grounding plates.

    • Unscrew the eight indicated T6 9.8 mm screws. Remove metal grounding plates.

    • Once all eight screws are removed, pry the sides of the Jambox to lift the body from it's shell.

    • With the battery facing forward, remove the three indicated T6 9.5 mm screws.

    • Once the screws are removed, lift up the small plastic plate, revealing the auxiliary board underneath.

    • Turn the Jambox so that the button panel is visible.

    • Remove the indicated screws, T6 9.6 mm.

    • There is a small plastic flap obscuring the view of one of the screws, indicated in orange. In order to unscrew it, simply lift the flap out of the way.

    • Remove the indicated T6 7.4 mm screw holding the auxiliary board in place.

    • Carefully lift the auxiliary board up and off to the side.

    • With the auxiliary board removed, use a soldering iron to heat the metal keeping the charge port (indicated on image) intact.

    • Remove the charge port from the auxiliary board.

    • Exercise caution when handling the soldering iron due to extreme heat.

    • The new charge port will need to be soldered to the logic board. For an exact match use Digi-Key part number CP-018HPJCT-ND

    • With a multimeter, test all 3 PCB contacts to determine which are positive, negative and ground. Similarly, ascertain each terminal of your "new" charger port and its corresponding PCB contact. Your "new" port can be a brand-new, identical replacement or a salvaged one of approximate size, post thickness and terminal orientation.

    • Unless an identical part replacement, you may have to bend your ports terminals in order to make proper contact and'or enlarge the panel opening for the AC plug as I did. To avoid repeat part failure, I hot-glued my charger port onto my PCB after reinforcing my port's terminals with thicker wire and generous solder.

Skip steps 8, 9 and 10 by simply releasing the ribbon cable from the Power PCB side instead of the Button PCB side. WORKS!

how can i know the auxilar bord's code?

Good instruction!

Problem is that the C14 got snapped off too! Not sure if it is really needed. Possible to get the complete board?

Fred - Responder

I lost C14 as well, anyone have a good replacement number for that?

FYI the device will charge and power on without this capacitor. Not sure if it is needed for USB or 3.5mm output, but I don't really care about either of those scenarios.
