I recently wanted to replace the stock speakers in my newly aquired 'lux, and went about the process of discovering how to get in there without breaking anything!

Just in case someone needs to do the same, or fix something inside the doors.

Hi there,

Thanks for this, really appreciated.

I have been meaning to replace a busted speaker and put it off. This was partly due to the last time I attempted this was on an older merc where you have to swivel the side glove compartment upwards to get it off the door panel....needless to say I broke the plastic cilp and had to replace the whole thing!!

So thanks again

Now you must know... if the guys from the forum can make such a nice write up of a fairly simply project imagine what they will do when they overhaul the engine..... :shock: :shock: :shock:

Nicely done
To God be the glory
