I have the same problem, can you replace the door rear speaker grill without removing the whole panel?

Where can I purchase a new/used one?

thanks,

MC

Thumbs up

If the door panel is like all other Mercedes.... Just swing the bottom edge of the panel away from the door a few inches while lifting straight upwards on the panel (push upwards from the bottom edge) and the top edge should disengage from the top door frame.



Thanks Eric for the procedure....

They do tend to stick at the top edge, open the window first and push upward in a forward and back rocking motion.

thanks Eric, I'll get the VIN to you soon. I assume from the instructions I will have to remove the door panel to replace the rear speaker grill for replacement?
