Yes mate, there was a topic on here about that. Warning people not to do it, for that reason. Can you replace it?

Now I have water leaking into the insided pocket!
Apparently wates IS expected to filter through the window seal, through the door and out through the bottom drain holes... Now obviously... That aint happening... Water is filtering in, hitting the mutilated water shield above the speaker and dripping inside the car...
Any suggestions besides hacking my hands off?
I read the thread meganesowenersclub about the problem and how silicone would be a solution to stop water "ingress"... but that does not solve the problem of water hitting the speaker from inside and getting it wet right? I mean, not a biggie with the Alpine (shite)E-Series I currently have installed in the doors... only 25 quid... but when upgrading to 250 quid Focal 130V slims.... I wouldnt be so laid back about it...jonseal said:good old silicone!
Without dismantling the door trim? Wonder if there's a simpler alternative... Ive never worked with glass fibre before...shinyautos.com said:Get some fibre glass and past it on, sand it down and it'll be like new.
