    Question removing dash to replace front speakers- 90 sedan deville

    I am now trying to replace the front speakers in my dash, and am struggling to get to them. I have taken out the glove box and removed the air grill on the top of the dash, as well as two screws that go from inside the glove area up.(couldn't see them till the box itself was out) I'm pulling on it and it seems to be moving a little but I don't want to force it and break anything. Have I missed anything or do I just need to rip it out.

    Thanks for any advice. Since you guys talked me through the rear speaker replacement the front speakers are now more noticable and annoying.

    Dash Removal

    There are three phillips head screws in the defrost grill on top of the dash. Two 7mm screws accessable through the holes on inside of the glove box ceiling. Four 7mm screws angled downward behind each of the adjustable vents on the front of the dash. Use a needle nose pliers to grasp the vent one side at a time and carefully pull it from its mount. There is a cabin temprature sensor, and a 1/2 inch vent hose connected to the inside of the dash board centered above the glove box. There is also a twilight sentinel sensor located in the passenger speaker grill. The vent hose pulls off from the dash and both sensors can be disconected at their harnesses clipped to the sub-dash frame.
