    im just trying to install some foval V130 Slims in my S3 and the tweeter has me confused.. the new ones arrive in their pods, i have managed to get the grill off the pod easily enough but have no idea how to get the tweeter out of the plastic 'pod' housing. with the pod in place they wont fit into the door panlel properly so i am assuming it has to be removed ? any help much appreciated !

    in the box usually with the sticker you get a blk plastic tool shaped like a
    'm' you slot this in to the tweeter a hole either side and turn anti clock wise by a 1/4 turn and it should fall out. hope this helps.

    Just remember not to use the Audi wiring as it has an inline capacitor heatshrinked into it between the woofer and the tweeter which will affect the SQ from the new tweeters
