    Also wondering if I can replace the speakers with aftermarket speakers (4") and keep the original Volvo covers on them.  Possible?

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.

yes you can, 1991 Dodge Dynasty Ignition Switch

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver
  • Tamper-proof Torx driver
  • Ignition key
Instructions
    • 1 Remove the plastic cover from the steering column. The cover is two pieces held together by screws that thread through the bottom piece of plastic into the top piece. Remove the screws and pull the cover off. This exposes the large square ignition switch. The key cylinder connects to the ignition switch.
    • 2 Remove the tamper-proof Torx screws that secure the ignition to the steering column using a tamper-proof Torx driver. You can get this type of Torx driver from your local auto part store.
    • 3 Pull the wiring harness out of the ignition switch.
    • 4 Place the ignition key into the cylinder and turn it onto the auxiliary position. Push the metal pin on the ignition switch in using a screwdriver and slide the ignition cylinder half way out of the ignition switch. Turn the key to the off position and slide the cylinder all the way out of the ignition switch.
    • 5 Place the key into the new cylinder, slide the cylinder into the ignition switch half way. Turn the key to the auxiliary position and slide the cylinder in the rest of the way. Remove the key from the cylinder.
    • 6 Press the wiring harness onto the ignition switch.
    • 7 Secure the switch to the steering column using the tamper-proof Torx driver.
    • 8 Place the covers back onto the steering column and secure them using the screwdriver.

Trying to replace ignition switch cant get steering wheel off


You'll need a special tool called a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. Then the ignition switch is screwed in by tamper proof torx. You'll need tamper proof torx bit to remove the screws that hold the ignition switch on.

How to remove rear door interior door panel


You should obtain a tool made specifically for removing door panels. They are attached by "snap" connectors, and by pulling on the door panel itself will invariably ruin it. Get the tool from a parts place and carefully peer into the slot between the door metal and the door panel. Use the tool slowly with resolution. You should really acquire a manual that guides you for your particular Jag.
Remember, to take the panel completely off, you need to remove the door handle. Look for a plug that has a screw under it. You'll need to pop the door window/lock control panel too, to access screws under there. This can be tricky, so be careful.

The passenger rear door on the left will not open...


I don't believe I have seen a Volvo four door hatch-back here in the US, but my guess would be child-proof locks on the rear. Open the front doors and look for any switches on the front edge of the back doors. If there aren't any, check the owner's manual before contacting your dealer.

Driver side power window stopped working


The door panel is held on by plastic clips and 5 screws. 3 screws are on the bottom and 1 in the pull cup and 1 in the inner door handle.Then grab one of the corners and give a small tug, when you get some of the clips to pop out then proceed around the whole panel. To replace the panel take the clips out of the door with a fork and slide them back into the panel and then line it up on the door and use your hand like a hammer and bang the panel back on. Hope this helps
