Suck it out with you lips! :eek: LOL!

Sorry, that wasn't very nice.

How about compressed air.

Is it lined up with one of the holes in the grid? If so, a magnet might help.

I am not sure about the magnet thing, the speaker is a magnet so you would have to go more powerful and I don't like getting powerful magnets close to my computer / LCD Screen / Hard Drive / CD's.

Do I understand you have the case open. This is a scary proposition. I have no seen inside alot Ti books but I believe the speaker is somehow attached to the case so I think it is less evasive to take the piece out the way it when in.

You can not take the upper part of the case off. You start by removing the bottom lid first, then you dig in remove a lot of parts and the remaining part is the upper case.

Heart is wise to dissuade you about using a magnet. Your machine is very fragile and the last thing you want to do is make things worse.
