[DML] Re: Rear speaker access (was speakers)

Wow, that's an old one!  When I was replacing my rear speakers years  
ago, I found that there were plenty of cracks along the rear panel  
seam already.  I tried carefully prying the "wraparound" part off,  
but found it extremely brittle and created more cracks in the  
process.  Heat didn't help loosen up the ancient adhesive either.  I  
was concerned with melting the panel with the heat gun and also  
concerned with causing visible cracks by bending the brittle plastic  
back and forth.  I believe that these interior panels were  
unavailable then and definitely are now.

So, I ended up cutting along the edge of the lip.  You'll still have  
to dig through some of the old adhesive this way, but it worked well  
for me and there aren't any visible blemishes.  If I had to do it  
over again (and had to recommend a procedure to others), I'd say  
definitely try prying it off and use a heat gun carefully.  Then only  
if all else fails, cut it.

And if you do cut it, use some 3M spray adhesive to reattach the  
panel wrap to the fiberglass - it'll be easy to access again if you  
ever need to.

My 2c,
