Should be a standard 8" sub, located in the passenger rear side. Remove the plastic interior body panel, the sub will be located behind. Remove the 6-or-so screws holding it in, disconnect the wires, making note of which wire connected to which terminal. Connect the wires to the new subwoofer, replace screws in new sub. Test the audio system to make sure everything is working properly, and re-install the plastic interior cover panel.

    Yes.. thought it may be pretty straight forward. I guess what I'm looking for is instruction on which panels to remove and how. Thanks for that input!

    You'll have to remove the upper and lower panels across the back door(s), then remove the kick panel in the passenger rear door. All 3 of these are retained simply by clips which snap into the body. A panel removal tool is handy, but it can be done by hand, or with a flathead screwdriver, if you're careful. Once you have those panels removed, you'll have to remove several screws. They're black (6mm socket head, I believe). There's also a plastic screw knob in the back. Then you'll have to go about removing the panel from the clips, again going slowly. You won't be able to get the side panel completely out, because the seatbelt goes through part of it, so just move it out of the way as best you can.

    I just ran out to my vehicle and looked (2001 Tahoe), and I misspoke. It's actually the passenger side, and you should be able to get away without removing the kick panel, and just get the side panels that run from the ceiling down to the main panel. The subwoofer is also in a sealed box, which you should be able to unclip from the body for easier access for mounting and unmounting of the woofer itself. Hope this helps. I was thinking of the rear heater blower when I said passenger side (last thing I had to replace). :)

    I think you meant "driver's side"... even in this last post. :) But no worries. I knew what you meant.

SOURCE: 2002 chevrolet suburban won't drive in reverse

It could be the linkage. Jiggle the shifter to see if that helps. When it goes in reverse the trans opens other valves to put trans fluid (under pressure) to the reverse unit. If the trans has not had a trans service every 30k or so the fluid could get dirty ans gummey. There are trans additives can claim the desolve the gum. I have donethat before and it has helped my trans. They claim no damage to the trans. - I tried it

Usually this problem is solved by opening the driver's door & looking for a broken wire. This wire usually breaks at the flex point of the harness between the door & frame. Carefully slice outer coating revealing hidden wires. The broken one is the culprit. Hope this helps. Good luck!
