I just did a contact cleaning on my left rear Bose this weekend, no
How many bodies are up for another group purchase ?  I'm also
just rebuilding the system with an external amp, I have a few nice ones
lying around.  The amp that is making noise had 3M clips all over the 
power+signal and add-on speaker wire protruding from the housing with a
hi-to-low level converter hanging off of it, sheesh!

The screws holding the units to the speakers are not fixed, if you go
below, (like I stupidly did my repairs this weekend) it will be very
ugly trying
to hold the washer, lock washer and thread the nut in the little space
keeping the screw from moving up and vanishing.  Plus everything you
gets sucked inside the housing by the magnet, forcing you to undo
that you managed to get assembled.

Remove the two bolts below the front edge of the rear seat cushion, lift
out.  Remove rear headrests, push out the rest sockets from inside the
( haven't tried that step, just read it in the Bentley ), lift out the
seat portion.  The next Bentley step says to press down near the front
of the
depression in the rear tray, then remove it in a forward direction.
