Rear speakers in audi 1999 audi a4

I'm putting in new rear speakers i have taken out the rear seat backs and shelf, placed in the new brackets to allow me to fit universal speakers and screwed in the speakers (to the brackets). However the left rear speaker has a large connector block which i have never seen before with about 6-8 wires attached to it. This will not fit the new speakers. However the rear right side does fit the car. How can i fit the left side to the speakers? P.S i also hav a new head unit

You don't want to fit that - it's the factory amplifier for the rear speakers (the rears are amped, the fronts are not). You need to run new wires from the head unit back to the new rear speakers so that the speaker-level outputs from the new head unit are used to drive the new speakers.

How do i install 6x9 speakers in a 1995 oldsmobile cutlass ciera?


No brackets are necessary...I believe you are talking about replacing the rear speakers located in the rear wondow shelf...Of course the speakers mount underneath the window inside the trunk...You can remove the rear seat and pull the interior trim back to view the top side of the speaker mounting...The opening is already cut for the 6X9 speaker...You can mount the top underneath the window cloth material like the factory did, or no need to remove the interior cloth if you use new top speaker covers, usually come with the speakers. Hope this helps.

1999 Chrysler Concorde LXI Rear Speaker replacement


If you mean the rear shelf removal, then you begin by removing the rear seat (lift to release the corner clips on each side holding the cushion to the floor). Then remove the fasteners for the seat belts, then lift the seat back to raise and release it from its clips, and remove it from the vehicle. There are then a lower and upper trim panel around the back shelf that you need to remove (these may be on each side of the shelf, e.g. they are called 'quarter trim' panels). Then you will see some push-pin fasteners that hold the shelf across the front lower edge, so you gently pry out the center push-pin of each one of those to release the fastener. Then you pull the shelf forward to release it from the clips that hold it under the window. Then remove the wire to the center high-mounted brake light. The panel with its speakers attached can then be removed, but also remove the wires from the speakers so you don't break those. connections.
That is the procedure as shown in my '98 manual.

Audi A6 rear seat problem


The rear seat pulls out easily.  Grab the front of the seat with fingers under seat on driver side and pull up hard.  do the same on the passenger side and it will unclip.  Then you can move the seat around to get to the buckle.  Install by inserting rear end in first and lineing up the metal tabs w/ the female plastic inserts in the floor and push down hard until it snaps into place.

1998 Audi A4 Quattro rear speaker wiring


You can't use any of those - the large connector at the OEM speakers is because the rears are amplified. Your factory head unit puts out a line level signal to the rear speakers. There's an amplifier on the driver's side rear speaker (the box around the magnet that you can see from inside the trunk).

You need to either replace the head unit with an aftermarket one to drive your new speakers, or you need to tap into the amp connector and find the line level wires, break them out, put RCA plugs onto them, and plug them into an aftermarket amp, which you'd use to power your rear speakers. Doing it that way allows you to keep the factory head unit.

Problem with audi a4? I have just bought and Audi A4 04 plate and noticed a cover at the back of the rear bumper (and behind the rear ture) has come out of its place, i think it should just fit back in...


Im not sure this will help you but all i can say is No it definatly does not need nailing or glueing. the retaining clips may have broken off the cover go to your local scap yard and havea look at another like yours to check.

Changing Rear Speakers in a 1996 a4.


First remove the rear seat bottom cushion (grab the front edge roughly in the center of each seat position and pull up firmly, and it'll unclip and come out). Then fold down the rear seatbacks. Now, the side bolsters for the seats (between the seatbacks and the doors) have to come off. First, pull down strongly near the bottom (there's an upward-facing hook there that clips onto a ring and holds the bottom in place). Pull down and forward and it'll come off. Then slide your hand about 75% of the way up, and pop the bolster straight forward to pop out a retaining clip. Finally, you can remove the top of it from its mount, and you'll have the bolster out. Repeat for the other side.

Go into the trunk and look up at the bottom of the rear shelf. The harness plug for the third brake light is there - unplug it.

Now, back in the rear seat area, just grab the front edge of the parcel shelf and lift upward to pop it loose, and the whole thing will slide forward. Then you can remove your speakers.

Install is the reverse of disassembly.
