    I priced the speaker grill recently, $67 each. That is for the rear door. Highway robbery or what?

    quite pricey considering its a common thing for people kick it as they get out of the car.
    getting a custom metal mesh one and painting it the same as the interior would be better and stronger. at least if it cost $67 for a metal one you know it will never brake. if it dents just pop it back out.

    hmmmmm..........i might just sell that idea....:yeah: :whistling

    When I checked mine to see if it could be removed, it sure looked like it could. Although I didn't really get to remove it after I found out they were $67.

    Hell Yeah, I put both my feet off and yanked has hard as i could, and pop. Sometimes you got to be a bit rough with these things, same as i couldnt get my tail lights out, it just would move, after beening a bit rough it was easy, any one else had this problem?

    Yeah, they do come off, with a lot of force..lol I replaced mine in the front passenger side. $67. I replaced it while I was getting the windows tinted. It is a pain in the bum gettin the door skins off to get it out. I think the person who designed the door skins need a good foot in the bum..lol

    the speaker grill is connected to the door trim. the trim is easy as to take off. i have a vx sII. and i kno wthat the vt is the same so yeh. unless u can pop it out from behind the door trim. i dunno. door trim is simple to take off. there are more screws on front doors to the back doors. they wil have some screws in side of door that swings open, some on botton of door when open, one on the side that the hinge is on, one in the door handle, pop the plastic cover out with a sharp stanley knife and there is one inside there, handle just pops out. pop the red insert out of the door lock, and one inside there, take them all out and there will be one more inside the space where the door handle sits, (need to remove handle to see the one behind one for handle). it is easy as. it should just slide up and pull away simple.

    hope it helps, i have had my old vt and mums old vx ss and my vx exec all off. as i am a stereo gook and yeh. have changed many stock holden speakers
