Default Rear Speakers cover

Happy New Year to everyone! I want to replace the rear speakers on a 2005 Grand Vitara 2.5L. However, I read in other threads that the speaker covers are glued in to the cardboard fabric material and once it is ripped, it is difficult to put them back.
My question: Has anyone replaced their rear speakers(roof) with success in putting the rear speaker covers back on? All suggestions are welcome. Thank you

Look closely at the grilles, you'll see they are oval - the "ends" have a peg that locks into the headliner preventing the grille from rotating. Ease the end downwards - if necessary slide a flat object (perhas a putty knife) between the grille and the roof liner, rotate them counter-clockwise and remove.

The previous owner of my GV ripped the covers loose when installing rear speakers which I have since removed, I have had no problem with the grilles staying in place.

First of all, fordem, thanks for your assistance on this matter. Secondly, the pegs (2) look like they are glued into the roof liner. Are they? Once again, thanks.

I don't think there should be any glue there - there wasn't on mine. Now that you know where the pegs are, try pushing the roof liner upwards to clear the peg so that you can rotate the grille.

Forum, once again, thank you. The pegs are not glued but they are tight in there. I appreciate the help.

Default Rear speaker grilles

Hello,
I'm trying to remove my rear speakers too, and would appreciate some clarification. The plastic moulding that fits into the headlining is oval shaped, and within that there's a circular grille. When you're talking about rotating it, is it just the circular bit, or the whole oval shaped piece that turns and removes?

Many thanks

The whole oval shaped piece.

Hmm, thank you fordem :-)

I'll have another look. When I prise the whole thing away from the headlining, it does appear that the headlining is glued to the plastic at two or three points, or perhaps that's just where the pegs are.

Cheers
