It push fits on - not too hard but it wouldn't fall out.

If you look at the door card rear, with speaker removed, you should see a whole load of plastic pins and plastic welds around the grille - if they are not totally visible, then the spacer (cover) is still in place.

Sounds confusing but all will become clear once you've lifted it off... and smacked your head on the desk a couple of times

And for anyone who's considering the idea, you can actually remove the plastic welds at this point (around the rear of the circular spekaer grille)and drop the original grille straight out - leaving a sizeable hole in the door card which you could fabricate a baffle to and perhaps even do so without any modifications to the factory trim - allowing return to standard at a later time and as much moutn depth as you could ever want.
