Cellular antennas are generally bonded to the windows using double sided
foam tape.  The best way to remove this that I have found is to put steady
traction on it from one side to kind of peel it up.  If that doesn't work,
try using a razor blade to split the tape in two.

If you refer to the speakers in the dash, on my '86 5kq there is a little
louver thing on the side of the speaker grill that you pry off to expose two
screws.  Remove the screws and the grill lifts off (has tabs on the other side).
