Hello SLK World Forum,


Hope everyone have a good week so far.



My name is Peter from San Jose, CA (USA) and I'm a recent owner of a silver 2007 SLK 55 AMG. It's an awesome machine that's for sure. Hope to learn and get help from this forum down the road.



My first question: How to open the center dash speaker grille or cover since I believe the speaker's foam/cone needs some silicone adhesive patching or speaker replacement? My first few attempts were unsuccessful using a plastic wedge to lift the front top of the cover so I can place my fingers under to lift up but it would not budge. Any tips like video or instructions would be great. Thank you :smile:

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
