Question about 1991 Volvo 240
What tool do i need to remove the rear speakers in my volvo 240 sedan? They are screwed in with tamper proof screws.
It's worse than that. Those are not "tamper-proof screws", those are aluminum pop rivets. (Then again, they are even more tamper-proof than screws.) Once you get the door panel off you will see that each rivet splits into four legs that splay out to hold the speaker frame sandwiched between the grill and the fiberboard door panel. You can remove them but it took me some time with stout needle-nosed pliers to un-splay the legs, and ultimately a Dremel tool to cut them off. What a cheap PITA way to attach a speaker.
Theoretically, you should be able to replace the OEM speaker with a skinny 4" one but you will need to fabricate an adapter ring so there is something solid on which to mount the new speaker. Also, you will need to tape flat Tinnerman nuts to the back side of the panel so the screws you shoot through the grill will have something to bite into. It won't be pretty but it should work.
