I've gotten this far, but where do you get a replacement? No brand or model # on tweeter.

Are you saying removing it and replacing the same tweeter is what you have to do? It says no parts.

The primary purpose of this guide is to show you how to remove a failing tweeter so that you can replace it with a new one. The "no parts required" text appears at the top of this guide because the author didn't have a source for the replacement part.
