So about 2-3 weeks after buying my WJ I have already blown out my passenger side tweeter!! Now it sounds terrible if I turn my stereo up! Is it hard to replace them? I just want to pick up a cheap pair and replace them both but not sure how to do it! Thanks!!

The tweets are a cinch to replace, as said just pop off the trim part and there you go. I picked up a set of Pioneer replacements from Radioshack several years ago and they dropped right in after I tweaked the outer plastic housing of the speaker a bit.

Hmmm, didn't know that whole dash piece pops out like that. There I was trying to figure out a way to get to them from underneath. Thats why I just said the hell with those and got three way 6x9's in the door. They sound just as good IMO.

Very easy, I would say the hardest part is getting the screws out. I had to use a flexible hose screwdriver(snake) as I call it and they came right out. Very easy switch out. Make sure to be sure that the cover goes back on all the way, I have a slight rattle now from not making sure I secured it back good enough and when it pisses me off enough one day, I'll fix it. I bought some factory replacements on ebay for like $30 shipped.
You can fix it by yourself, I did 1 and half year ago and they work perfectly.
The problem is to explain it, i'm italian.
Obvisuoly you have to disconnect them
then you have to buy Vinavil
I dont know if you have it in your country but its just the standard white liquid wood working glue, used also for paper....
Vinavil - Vinyl and acrylic emulsions for paints, adhesives, paper.
Buy someting similar if you dont find it in US.
Then you need toilet paper, yes, not joking....
Put paper on tweeter membrane and put some glue all over, attacking also the edges of the tweeter.
wait one day....
$ ???? 1 box?
