Well i tried doing that, just popping it off, but it really didnt budge, so thats when i figured that there was more to it. Ill post some pictures just for peoples reference when i get to it in the next few days.
Actually the grille is plastic welded (pins pushed through and melted on the back side) on to the panel, at least on my V70. If you can get the grille, then you'll just need a hot knife kit to melt them on. You could probably do it with a soldering iron but it might get too hot, and will probably ruin the soldering tip. Here's a pic, from when I was installing my speakers, the grille is in the lower left.
Otherwise you're looking at getting a whole new door panel, which really shouldn't be terribly expensive and a much quicker fix in terms of labor.
Right and i found that out, unfortunately i had already bought the speaker cover. I just did everything and it was not too bad. I used a Dremel to get the original broken cover out. And then i melted the new one into place just like the original one was. Thanks for the help!!
