If the tweeters are anything like the E30's, They are glued in from the = rear.
I used an x-acto to carve as much glue and plastic from the tweeter itse= lf as
I could from the backside and save the pod. I also dug in some on the fro= nt
side after removing the grille. Then I just used a small screwdriver and=

pryed the tweeter out. I also found out that some heat will help soften = the
old glue. Mine were sitting on the dash in the sun for a while and got w= arm
and it made it much easier to pop them apart.
