1999 Cavalier Speaker Removal

I own a 1999 2-door Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2L and recently purchased a set of 4"x6" speakers for my front door and a set of 6"x9" speakers for the rear. The problem is, I can't figure out how to get the stock speakers to swap them out. I know you have to remove the trim on the inside of the door to get the front ones and you have to remove the cover in the back window for the rear ones, but I tried to do this today and had to stop for fear of breaking something beyond repair. If anyone has experience with this and can provide step by step instructions for my problem, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks :)

    what exactly are you getting stuck on? on mine the hardest part is the manual window lever, there is a metal clip that is almost flush with the door panel, you have to remove it using a needle nose pliers or ive heard you can use a rag and snag the end of the clip with the rag and pull it off, after that its a few screws and the plastic pieces you have to pry out of the door itself and it comes right off

The rear speakers you need to take at least one side off. What I mean is the part when your sitting in the back seat the plastic piece were the armrest is. After you take at least one or both of these out just fold the seats down and the rear window carpet piece will have four plastic push pins then just pull it straight back and its out. After the carpet is out just unclip the speaker and pop it out then unplug the harness.

The front first you need to take the screw out of the small piece up by the side mirror and pull that piece out, then pull the metal clips for the window cranks, if you have manual windows. then the screws in the grab handles, the rest is just plastic clips. Just either get a specialty tool for this or I use a butter knife and slowly pry the door panel up and work it around the entir panel until its loose. sometimes no matter how hard you try to be carefull the clips will break though. They are failry cheap if they do and autozone should have them. after the panel is off it is pretty simple just take out the screws holding the speaker and pop it out then unplug the harness.
