    2005 cts bose dashboard speaker and grill

    In freaking out right now... I was thinking i may have blown the center speaker cuz i heard a rattling noise coming from the dash. Hell i didn't even know for sure if it was a speaker. Like a idiot i pushed down on it and cracked the little plastic grill and the prices went down and tore the speaker.. I'm speachless and pissed off right now.. On a positive note the cracking is gone but i have a funky hole in my dash!!!!! I don't even know where to start.. Can i replace this with another speaker? Can i buy the black grill again? I've tooken out my NAC screen to do the aux mod... Is this how i reach the speaker? Any help will be greatly appreciated... Im going to eat a xanax now before i freak out.. Please help

    My advice, calm down, Bruce Banner.

    That forward-most section of the dash looks like a separate piece. I am not sure how to remove it... might have to take the windshield out to access it... but I would imagine you could either buy a new one, or take yours out, dremel the hulk-smashed hole out, and mount an aftermarket speaker and grill in its place.

    The most forward dash piece is separate. But no need to remove the windshield. Just a puddy knife and a little twisting will release that piece.

    You have to remote that piece to gain access to the speaker though.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread, but I figured it's better than starting a new one and everyone telling me to use search.


    Mine just recently cracked, has anyone changed there's out? Could any one point me in the right direction to get the cover replaced??
