Then your speaker is connected down here, the tab there, there are two tabs on each side squeeze the connector and pull it off.
Now, install, plug the speaker back in. Make sure your door is unlocked and put this right back up, push the lock out, get the lock button started in there, and push it against the window seal and down.
