@jfc you disconnected Grey and purple wire connector - what does the second connector to the center speaker do ? (Grey and green wires)

That speaker is dual coil. Both channels are connected to it, left and right

@johnshmit i was able to confirm that if you disconnect the white connector to the speaker then you lose the "SOS" functionality... your MBUX screen will show "SOS Not Ready" in top right corner, and the button in overhead console will remain lit when you drive... so can't disconnect that one... only the black one can.

Wow. It took all over 30secs to disconnect - did it before I even left the Dealer lot the other day after signing papers on our '19 170 4x4 crew. Very noticeable change from the initial test drive. Thanks All!

Hi Mr Makai

+ Three exposed screws along bottom edge
+ 5 circular plugs you need to pop out (trim tool) with screws behind them
_ 2 in lower cubby, 1 behind door handle, 1 in door pull pocket, 1 at top outermost (facing your elbow when seated)
+ Pop out small trim piece around door lock stalk where it meets glass

You can then start at the bottom and work your way around popping the plastic clips

The bottom edge of the door panel has hooks that hold it to sheetmetal
Once you’ve popped off all the body clips, the door panel will rotate out so you can unclip the wiring and the door rod from the door handle
Then the door panel can rotate down towards you a bit more and you can lift it out of the recess that the hooks sit in

There’s a couple YouTube videos if you need visuals
If I find url I’ll post it up
