Philp, are you referring to the speaker in the center of the dash? If so, the cover for that speaker comes off easy. It's held in by 4 or 5 clips. You basically can use a flathead screw driver or something similar to lift up on one edge to get it started, then use your hand to unsnap the others.

According to the manual, the Front Controls Interface Module (FCIM) must be removed before the center speaker can be removed.

This is a 6-step process that involves partial disassembly of the console.  If you're certain the buzzing is due to a bad speaker and still want to do this, let me know and I'll post the procedure.

Wow. When I did my sync 3 upgrade, I had to pop the clips and  remove the cover from the center speaker. I never looked inside of it once I removed it but now that i'm looking, there's a good bit of work involved. It still isn't a bad job if you follow the instructions that drolds1 posted. It took me about an hour to remove the FCIM and i'm nowhere near a mechanical type guy
