most door panels have plastic push in fasteners around the edge about . there is a special tool to help get them out but often they break on removal however cheap to buy and replace. Use a couple of flat tip screwdrivers to quickly pop the panel away from the door frame all around the edge. get as close to the fastener(tightest spots)with your tool for best effect
remove interior panel then remove screws which retain speaker, un plug speaker and plug in new speaker. as long as OEM part is being used it should bolt/ screw in reverse order of disassembly. when removing panel be care full not to force anything. there are same panels the do not pop out at all point some times there are some points toward the upper side near window that slide up not pop out. breaking the retianers will cause miss alignment and interior noise/ vibration.

The many different design interiors make it
impossible to list each fastener location. The trim panels that must be
removed are held in place by screws and clips. These locations vary from
model to model. After removal of all the fasteners that you are aware
of, if the trim panel is still firmly attached, you probably missed a
hidden fastener. If this happens, gently and carefully pry the area
looking for the location that doesn't flex. The location that does flex
is where you'll find the fastener(s) you missed. Screws and retainers
are usually hidden. Handle trim, reflectors, light lenses and other
plastic pieces usually cover the main retaining screws. Take great care
with the plastic trim panels. Plastic trim panels are usually very hard
plastic and extremely easy to crack. The following steps can be used to
guide you through the removal and installation of the trim panels, but
you may need to alter these steps to your specific needs.

Unfasten the door trim panel retaining screws. The locations of
the screws will vary depending upon the year of model of vehicle. The
screws are usually hidden, so be sure to look carefully to make sure you
don't miss any.After all of the trim panel retaining screws are removed, slide a
suitable trim panel removal tool between the door panel and door
perimeter to carefully disengage all of the trim panel retaining
buttons. Make sure to position the tool close to the fastener, or the
trim panel may be damaged.
Carefully lift the trim panel away from the door, checking to be
sure all of the retaining buttons and screws and electrical connectors

are securely installed to the panel and are not damaged. Replace damaged
retainers as required.

i've got a 2003, and i believe the parts and procedures are the same for the years. there are screws in the dash trim by the ciggarette lighter, and more on the underneath of the dash pad where the gauge cluster is. then carefully pop the dash trim out. there are retaining clips that hold it in besides the screws. they should pop out without too much effort. i'd start near the radio and be careful. there also may be two more screws near the bottom of the steering wheel that you'll have to remove the trim below it to get at.
Remove the screws around the arm rest door handle area.Then pull out from the bottom.They are held on with little plastic push retainers.If you have a window handle there is a very small metal retainer clip that looks like a horse shoe you will have to pull off.Once you have everything pulled out then push up from the bottom and the top will pop off.Well hope this helped.
It's usually the window winder that presents the problem . Remove all visable retaining screws ie; Grab handle , Internal door opening lever , Button on top of panel (if applicable ) etc . The majority panel are a pop snap on type . Remove the winder lever withthe aid of a shoe lace or thin piece of cloth material, The winder is retained by a horse-shoe shaped spring clip. .... Pull the shoe-lace/ material in the opposite direction of the winder retainer clip and it will easily come off, but it is a spring clip and may fly off so be careful. Good luck
