[A4] rattling speaker - FIXED!

Hi all,

Following up on a question I asked earlier, for those who want to save some 

My right front speaker was ratling with bass sounds.  Turns out it 
was "blown." In this particular case the out suspension ring, or diaphragm, 
had torn all the way around and completely separated from the frame. A neat 
glue job with some regular PVA did the trick. I also played music (very 
softly) through the speaker for the entire time it was drying to avoid any 
large hard parts forming and restricting the motion of the cone. 

To get to the speaker, you need to take the whole internal panel off. In 
Short, two screws on either edge. One in the hand grab. Pop out the bottom of 
the hand grab. Undo the further two screws in the area revealed, then loft 
the whole door off. To avoid disconnecting everything, I  used a piece of 
string to dangle the panel off the window frame.
