      From GregV8, very nice! Just be really careful with that little latch that holds in the cover with the lock switch, breaks pretty easily... I found it easier to remove the part around the door handle first... then the switch holder. Have fun!

      When I replaced my speakers I did not remove the part around the handle first and broke one of the little lock cover clips/latches. grrrrrrrrr:mad: On the other three I removed the handle cover and was able to get the lock covers off without any damage.
