    Take the window buttons out and disconnect, there are 3 (i think) torx screws at the very bottom of the card, pull the cover off the handle and there are 2 larger torx screw. Pull card from the bottom to pop the clips around the sides and bottom. Then gently lift the card upwards and hold it slightly away from the door, reach around to disconnect the speaker and unclip the cable from the inside handle (the one to open the door).
    You can hopefully use some mole grips as a temp fix.
