are you talking about the metal grate that you see on the rear deck??

if so, push on the front towards the back of the car and lift up. If I remember correctly you can push from anyside and they will come out.

You can't replace the front speakers through the grilles so I wouldn't risk damaging them by prying them off. The door panel has to come off for speaker replacement.

If, for some reason, y'all don't trust the master interior guy Randman on this one, trust me. My front speaker grill on the passenger door is now glued on because I pried it off and the mounting tabs broke.
