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.

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
