1) How do I remove the Stock Speaker Grills from my door speakers. I don't see any pry tabs or areas on them. It seems like I read somewhere that with later model cars they unscrewed basically- but that doesn't seem to be the case.....
2) I assume ...to remove these old stock Speakers in order to re-cone them I will have to remove the door panels?
door panels do not need to be removed.
on my 1990 I took a small flat blade style plastic tool and gently pried under the lip and then turned the grille a little to take them off.
be careful, and go slowly; they are easy to break.
the woofers do not turn at all because they have a locating tab that goes into the bezel of the speaker

sorry to bother you with a mundane question like this but I am reluctant to learn the hard way. How do you remove the tweeter grill in the door panel ?
The larger one is a "screw-on" type but the tweeter, while very hard to turn, does not come off. Tried prying it off with reasonable amount of force but it didn't budge. Afraid I will break the locking tabs if I go beyond "reasonable amount of force". What's the trick ? Is it a snap-on or screw on grill ?
While fixing broken wires coming into the door I noticed the tweeter is installed at an angle but pointing wrong way. It is pointing into the dash rather at the driver. I would like to rotate it so it fires at me rather than the dash. Thanks
its is screw on, and it turns off anti-clockwise. It can be stuck, and be careful: it can be brittle and will break easily.
on my '87 and '88 they were screw on. on my '89, '90 and '91 they are all
