Default Woofer driver repairable? works when pressing on the cone

I've got a woofer driver in my car that has stopped working. The mid and tweeter works fine.

I've found out that if I press slightly on the cone, the woofer works fine. It is as if the magnet has pushed the voice coil out to much or something. Pushing the cone in when the amp is off, it moves back and forth smoothly.

Do you think it would be possible to repair this somehow or do I have to get some new woofers?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Probably the connection of one of the flexible wires running between the cone and the terminals on the frame is faulty at one end or the other. It will be repairable, but you have to find exactly where the problem is.

Ahh, that makes sense. I will take the driver out and have a look.
