Default How do I remove the Bose door speaker cover

A friend of mine hit the cover & bent it when he was getting out of the car. I pulled on it & it did not move easy so I thought before I damaged it they may be a trick to it. I want to try to fix it without replacing. Thanks

I'm fairly certain it comes off with the door panel but certainly could be incorrect . . . that said- a suggestion:

A passenger in my car dimpled the speaker cover getting out - - -I ended up unbending a paperclip to a 90 degree angle, sliding it through the mesh and using the flat portion of the paperclip to pull gently on the indentation - - -it popped out pretty easily - -but the key was to work around the outside edges carefully rather than just tugging on the middle.

Worked for me - - just a suggestion . . good luck!

Sounds like the way to go thanks. I thought they would pop off, but when I tried it did not move. Thanks
