You could try and play with the connectors leading into the driver and see if they can move at all. They might be shifting position causing a short.
acknowledged. so that's the PVC, sorry but getting all confuzzled with all these materials that i never realised their purpose of...

i see, i may try a little tape first, rather than re-applying food wrap
if need be i can replace the whole thing with the PVC that i will try to melt the glue off from my non functioning driver hence keeping it all in tact and re-applying it to the functioning driver
thing is, if those holes are causing the squealing, wouldn't it be a constant thing, at the moment it's intermittent and if i slap the thing hard enough, it stops
