How to Remove the Center speaker? 3G Garage #F-079

I've asked this question in the DIY thread for the center speaker rattle but no one replied. The squeeking noise is getting worse and I want to fix the problem. So I am asking again in a new thread.

"My speaker rattles as well. Unfortunately, when I try to remove the speaker, it is very very difficult. I put a screw driver in on the right side and try to lift the speaker. It doesn't budge. From the pictures, it looks like I have to release the clips from the bezel. is this what I am aiming for when inserting the screw driver?

Am I also affraid that if I lift up on the speaker, the clips will fall off into the vehicle. I have seen those types of clips before and they don't retain all too well.

I must be missing something. Any help will be appreciated."

you can actually use a flathead screwdrive and pry up one side of the speaker and then slowly pry up the rest. there are NO clips that'll fall .. it's held in there strictly w/ tension, the speaker grill being slightly oversized compared w/ the soft, vinyl-esque material of the dashboard. You'll be fine, just go slow and it'll pop right out.

Both links are for the front doors. Neither show the rear deck removal.
I appreciate the help! Thanks!


Edit by mod Ron A: Sorry about that. I put the wrong link in for the rear deck thread. It is correct now.

I thought there are clips. Please take a look at the pictures posted in the thread below by kefler. It clearly shows clips. Does the 2005 no longer uses clips?

There are definitely clips in there. I know...one of mine fell in. Do it slowly and carefully.
