I'm surprised, I've recovered a couple of soggy SE T300s by total
dismantling, washing in alcohol (IPA), drying and rebuilding. The hidden
area under the multiway connector to the outside world was the worst as
wet use had caused some tracking and caused leakage after cleaning.
I'll defer to your professional experience though.
