Removing dash speaker grilles

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This might seem like a daft question, but I'm currently amidst the usual stereo upgrade (Pioneer TS-WX010A but Audison Prima APX 4S instead of the usual Focal 100ACs due to the latter's aluminium tweeters).

I can't seem to pry off the existing dash speaker grilles; they seem to require an insane amount of force, to the point of denting the leather of the dash (which should come back up with a little heat and time, so not too worried). Currently using a small flathead wrapped in a microfibre cloth.

Any tips/tricks or ideas of what I might be doing wrong here?

Cheers in advance!

Make a hook from a straightened-out paper clip, or something similar. Then poke the hook through the speaker mesh and gently pull upwards. This will reveal the speaker and plastic frame which is held in place with four crosshead screws. Using a suitable size screwdriver undo the four screws. The ones near the window screen are difficult to get at but with a little patience they can be removed. Then lift out the speaker and disconnect the two wires. Finally lift out the plastic frame, refit the new speaker in reverse order. Hope this helps Mark.
