Default Speaker replacement

Okay, so I am going to put the new 4X6'* and 6X9'* in on Saturdat.
The 6X9'* will be no sweat.
Not sure though how I do the 4X6'*.
Do the front grills just pop off out of the dash?
There doesn't appear top be any screws holding them on.
What about the speakers themselves, how are they secured in? Are they just philip'* head screws.?

yes the grille should just pul up with a flat blade screw drive, that how my 88 Cele worked

then you'kk have to use a socket wrench to undo the screw/bolts

Cool, I can handle that.
Finally, something I can do myself.

I was figuring we could do the radio when you come for the Habitat meet.
