How do I remove electrical connection to speaker box mounted on top of engine cover? I found this site below that says press the tabs on the connector to release.  I can't get my hand under the speaker box to get to the connector?

Without removing the speaker box i can't get the engine cover off to replace the air filter.

 

Circled in the attached photo are the wires going to the speaker box and what appears to be a plastic tab that I haven't be able to figure out if its use in releasing the connector.  

 

Anybody have advice on how to proceed?

Normally, you do not need to remove the speaker box to disconnect the speakers, the wire runs out near the passenger's side roll hoop, which is where the connector is located.

Attached is a photo showing the speaker wire going behind the roll bar.  If the connector is located on the other side of the roll bar shown in photo I don't  see how to access it.  There is absolutely no slack in the wire. I was thinking the plastic tab circled may have something to do with releasing the connector.  Pushing and pulling on it has not worked.

I believe you will find that plastic tab is to be lifted, pulling the small flap of carpet back, which will reveal the connector plug beneath it.

Thank you JPG. I have been on this issue most of the day learning how to put top in service mode, disconnecting cable ball joints, using strap to support rear window and now just resolved removing speaker box.

 

Attached is a photo showing carpet flap open and closed. Actually you push down on the tab while pressing to open carpet flap.   I had to rotate the speaker box supporting one end on top of the truck to get hand on connector to disconnect. Will tackle replacing filter tomorrow morning.

Glad you got it sorted.  I knew it was behind the carpet flap and that the flap had to be raised to expose it.
