Front centre Speaker -Removal

Postby Guest » Mon, 14 Sep 2009 06:17:37 UTC


Too much volume and too much AC/DC has blown the front centre speaker! Does anyone know how to get the thing out? RealOEM is clear that the speaker itself is screwed to the dash (obviously!) but the grille does not look an obvious prise-off item? Due to its location, I can't really get too close or even see it too well!!

Any/all help appreciated

Mark - thanks for your expected contribution!!

Yep - next time you're heading this way give me a shout (have you still got my cell number?).

If I understand you correctly you want the hood cover to stay vertical so you can dry out the bit where the fabric hood stows? On mine I just take my finder off the close (or open, depending which way it's going!) and turn the ignition off - whatever position the roof operation is in is where it stays. Does yours not do this?

hello mate,
yep still got your number.
and yes that is what i am trying to do . not tried with key in ignition. normally press and hold the key button. get it to fully open . have a quick dry out then get out the way or press button again as the roof slowly falls. maybe i could try with key in ignition ???

Seems to work for me - wait until the roof is towards the closed position (but the rear lid still vertical) take your finger off (mine stops at this point anyway) and turn the key to off? Give it a try - can't do any harm.............provided your Missus isn't doing the operation whilst your head is in the hood space and you've somehow upset her that day!!

And the answer (to the original post) is:

Gently prise off the cover with a small screwdriver blade. This exposes the speaker which is unscrewed by three Torx head screws. A replacement BMW speaker is c£80 or a pair of top quality replacement at my local car audio store are £30..............

A bot of adjustment to the speaker mountings and Bob's your Dad's Borther..........
