    Default How to remove front-door BLIS-indicator / tweeter panel?

    One of the 6.5" speakers (front door) is starting to make a popping sound. I see where I can replace the front door speakers, but they come as a 3-piece "component" set
    (woofer, tweeter, and frequency splitter module). Bottom line: I'll need to also replace the tweeter located behind the BLIS-indicator panel.
    I can't figure out how this panel is removed to access the tweeter.

    Finally solved this. The photos show the process:

    1) Roll down window
    2) Pry the black plastic frame stretching it toward the rear of vehicle -- when it releases push frame toward interior (first, near top of frame)

    4) Pull pointed corner of black frame inward to clear weatherstripping

    5) With bone or screwdriver, lift frame upward at front, then pull frame toward interior. It should break free at this point

    To reattach, note 2 metal spring clips that insert into rectangular holes in door frame.
