Hey friends... anyone have an idea on replacing the speaker grills on an 05 Elise? Someone must have taken mine off the dash speakers while I had it parked without the roof. They weren't very secure in the first place.... I know others have replaced complete speakers but I just want to get it back to being cosmetically clean...guess it is lighter weight though....! Actually, if they fit I am not insisent on having Blaupunkt branded ones. Just something decent to cover up the speaker itself. Thanks!

I hate people. If it's not locked down, they'll steal it. And if it is, they'll vandalize it. Ridiculous. This should be an easy fix though. I'd check with Audio Express or Radio Shack.

I believe I still have a set of the Blaupunkt grills but I may have thrown it away. Because my soon to be ex wife has filed a false order of protection against me to gain control of our real estate, I don't have access to it at the moment, but I may be able to get at it next week when I go in with the cops.

I don't think you can buy just the grills from them. They come sold as a package with the speaker mounting rings (and I think you need to buy the a pair!). I needed to replace one warped ring but didn't need the grill. I had to buy a pair of rings and they came with the grills.

I've got the extra grills but given what your experience, I'm going to hold onto them!

Here's the part number: A121M6008F $18.54 grille front speaker

Good luck.

Wow, this is why I love the Lotus community. With so many personal problems looming, he's still down to help another member out. :clap:

Sorry to hear, btw.
