front speaker removal

How do I access or remove the front speakers?

Use a knive or flatbed screwdriver to pull out the metal thingy.
After that, you can unscrew the holding screws of the plastic.

Make that a very dull, dinner, knife, or dull putty knife,
or small (~ 5") pry bar.  Two tabs on the rear (toward
the seat) edge of the finely perforated grille snap into
the mating, shorter grille (with the three long slots).
The taps are each ~ 1/4" long and ~ 1" from the corners
on the left and right.  Insert the tool between the two
grilles, adjacent to where each of those two tabs are,
and pry up the rear edge of the perforated grille until
each tab pops free.

I just used the end of the nail file tool on my "Classic"
Swiss Army pocket knive to remind myself where those tabs
are, and it worked fine.  Oh, and there are two similar
tabs on the front edge, but these pop free when you pry
that rear edge up and keep lifting it up until the front
tabs pop free.

The perforated grille comes out and the other grille
with the three slots stays in the dash cover.  The dash
speakers are accessible then (although maybe the other
grille has to be removed first, but how will be obvious).

Good luck,
