Can't tell if the little plastic grills in front of the speakers are the access point to remove the speakers or if I have to remore the whole door panel. I tried prying them but they didn't want to come off.

Figured I'd ask before I broke some plastic.

If they're like the older legacies, you have to remove the entire door panel.

You need to remove the entire door panel. Its not that hard, just be gntle with it. There are two screws in the arm rest, one at the door handle. Pop off the plastic triangles or tweeters at the mirrors. Gently start at the bottom of the door panel, prying it up. i use a thin screwdriver and feel for the retainer, then start there and pry, and then the next and so on. the panel then lifts up off the door.
