I had a very similar problem on a hand held scanner. In my case the mylar speaker cone had separated from the voice coil. I found an exact replacement for under $4 at Allied Electronics.

This is not a fix for the faint of heart. remember that you have a Transceiver, not just a Receiver. There is more that can go wrong once you have opened it up. With that being said, if you still want to tackle this, you need to gain access to the volume control pot with the knob off and spray contact cleaner into the pot itself. Use a Qtip with cleaner on it to clean the exterior contacts. Make sure all is dry before re assembling. If that does not work, then your volume pot is going bad and needs to be replaced. Best place for parts is www.amateurelectronics.com

Probably not the squelch but the speaker on the VHF. These radios are famous for crapping out when getting wet.
Try listening to the weather radio VHF ch 01, 02, or 03. depending on your location and play with squelch.. Keep in mind they do make external speakers you can hook up.
