I guess you wouldn't have to as long as there is some space between the speaker and the door grill. I thought it would be a good idea to create a tighter fit and maybe reduce rattling of the door panel.

You don't have to take any trim ring off from around the door latch, just the plastic plate at the back of latch. The other two screws are under the grab handle and that took some brute strength to get the face of the handle off. The rest is as described by others.

How is that plastic plate behind the door release latch (handle) removed?

On mine, I can see the outline of the more-or-less rectangular plate, and there is a small notch mid-way along the top. But I havenít figured out how it is held in, and what I have to do to take it out without damaging it.

Default removal of plate

I used a right angle tool that I got from the hardware store. I think it needs to be stronger than just a bent paper clip. I went past the notch and pulled the plate out with the right angle on the backside of the plate. It can come flying out so pull gradually and firmly. I think you could also use a small flat screwdriver but you would have to wedge it against the other plastic in the handle area and could scratch.

Default also....

The handles are also a trick. I used a flat screwdriver with some tape on the end to pad it and gently separated first the top of the handle cover from the door panel and then the lower part. Then, pulling out at the top or again, gently prying with the screwdriver, while at the same time pushing down on the cover to gain more separation at the top. You will see a tab at the top that holds it in place. Once the top end is loosened up you can get the full length of the handle cover to come off. It fits fairly firmly on the handle.

Thanks for the responses on both the upper and pull handles.

In regard to the right angle tool, do you mean a right angle screwdriver (with flat heads bent at 90 degrees at either end) or is something else?

Default right angle

its more like a right angle bent ice pick. A lot of the hardware stores have a set of 2 double ended or 4 individual picks. One straight, one right angle, one c-shaped and one sort of bent funny. Very handy for lots of projects or getting yourself out of trouble. Like when I dropped something down into a narrow drain and used one of the picks to fish it out.

I recognize what you described and will get a set (for multi-purposes). Thanks
