Default Where is LT30p's vibration module

Hi Guys,

My phone's vibration has becomed very annoying, it sounds like something is loose and it's making a horrible rumbling sound.
Since i don't have warranty i decided to open up the phone myself and see what's going on in there, this is where i got lost, i can't find the vibration module on my Xperia T, all i can say about it is that it's somewhere on the motherboard (i was holding in my hand and had the vibration is coming from it), and i'm guessing that it's in one of the sealed compartments... but which one?..................

Since the device is not using a traditional vibration motor i'm almost sure that this can't be fixed without a replacement.

Any ideas???

It is the part on the right side of camera. It is covered by metal cap. The cap can be removed and you can try to bend the metal bars, but it won't most probably help. And you could break those plastic slots where these bars are sticked. Just like me. I've broke them. But vibration works.

Some of the parts on T are just crappy.
Vibrator, battery, rear speaker, GPU (heating), back cover and maybe I forgot something.

Very cool. I dropped my phone some time ago and it doesn't vibrate any more. If I put the phone really close to my ear, I can hear it buzzing though... so I imagine something got loose. Thanks for that.

Yo guys!

I got some solution for the vibrator problems:

I repaired my own T so i havent done any photos of it..
but u have to dismantle the housing mentioned in the 2nd post
then move the "thing" with your finger, and put some drops of that hot juice called wd40 on every piece that "moves"

fixed it for me instantly!
First it just maked a sound and NO VIBRATION, i moved it for some time and then wd40 - works now like a charm!

It looks like the housing was made for keeping some fat inside or something.
this fat disappears after a waterdamage, or just after some months of using.

Hope this helps you!
