Hi, I had trouble finding the speaker cover everywhere. No luck. hope you can help!
I have a cracked plastic speaker cover located rear left trim panel. I hope to replace this instead of a whole trim panel. it is black one.

Try eBay. I鈥檓 looking for the lower right for my Roadster as my too has a crack.
I looked for a year on Ebay for some bottom front Lf-u grilles (both sides were kicked to hell when I bought the R56 cooper) ..in the end I sucked it up & paid around 拢76 for two grille covers & two new naff gaskets.

That was a very painful learning curve, I wish they had metal grilles as they are a poor design, but doubtless profitable!
Fortunately it鈥檚 just the cover that鈥檚 buggered and not the actual speaker. I鈥檒l try some araldite next week, maybe that will work.
I'm tempted to just grab some metal nibblers & decent micro s/steel mesh sandwich a gasket in there & see the difference, ..may as well stick some bitumen sound sheeting in there at the same time, then if any good & "zzz" (vibration free) paint it black.
Remember it's available as a spray these days from some manufacturers, which may help ..might be worth the trouble.
Unfortunately mine were beyond any form of reclamation literal "oles"
I bought two complete rear 1/4 trims of the auction site ,they included the speaker grill and I trim I wanted ,just emoved them and now can do the modification I want they were 拢15 for the pair

You were extremely lucky! ..I figured a year of alerts on ebay was more than enough, even scrappers were charging so much at the time it made more sense to buy new, ..I remain aghast to this day, & realise why folk go early to auto jumbles & car boot sales :whistle:
I have two rear ones ,none HK which are now surplus to requirements .馃槑
