[DML] Re: Speaker replacement

I went into one of these side panels, not to replace speakers, but 
to try to get my seat belt retractor working better.

Because I was told I had to cut, I cut. I used a razor knife. I cut 
as far out on the edge as possible so the cuts are not visible 
unless you remove the inner seal and look hard.  I think I slipped 
once when the brittle vinyl gave way. 

Replacing the inner clips held everything fine without need for 
adhesive and replacing the seal covered everything up.

Since you were able to remove without cutting, maybe more patience 
on my part and softening things up with heat would have made for an 
easier job? 

Any advice out there?  I probably have to open up the passenger side
