Good day, I noticed that the plastic water/weather proof film on the front speakers of my 1500 is peeling off (from the inside) How do I get the speaker covers off to replace the film- they are very delicate?

They are only dust covers and are very thin nylon type material. The speaker cones and black areaare actuallyspray treated to waterproof them. The nylon cover isn't a big deal and you won't miss them.

As long as the loose material doesn't fuzz the sound, then you might want remove the loose stuff.

Those covers don't last more than a few years on any Wing as they usually just rot. Just tear them off if they are already flapping about.

Thanks,

How are the plastic grills (mine are brown) removed so I can access the film?

You have to remove the whole console to do this. Windshield trim, winshield, ignition cover etc.

The Scotchguard does a great job of it, but you have to repeat the treatment every couple of years as it wears off. A longer lasting way is to use clearcoat (the stuff that goes over car paint) mixed with a flexible additive. That lasts the life of the speaker and doesn't need to be repeated every couple of years.
