Instead of me giving you a very detailed process you might do better buying a Haynes repair manual for your specific car. It is available at your auto parts store and contains everything about your car you will need.

How do you take te rear inside left door panel off to work on speaker


Impossible to answer without knowing the exact model, but generally you need to know that these panels are held in place by plastic "pins" (I don't know the correct term) that fit into holes in the door chassis You just essentially get started at one point and keep moving. It is imperative, though, that if anything will prohibit the panel from pulling away completely, you must make certain you've removed it first - like an ashtray or an armrest, etc. Otherwise, you'll be left with an almost removed door panel hanging by whatever it is preventing it from freeing up. Take your time on this and be very gentle, lest you break one or more of the pins.

How to replace rear door speakers for 1997 GMC jimmy


I think your GMC have in-door rear speakers.!!
  • Look for screws in door panel or around the speaker vents.
  • If you are sure that the speaker cant be removed without opening the door panel then read this below.
  • Mostly seen near areas like door lever(inside), power window switch set, bottom and each sides of the whole panel.
  • If its manual window, then look for a circle clip in between the winding window lever and the door panel. Plunge screw driver between them a make a gap then look.
  • Assure that all clips or screws which obstacles the removal of the panel.
  • Simply pull the panel from sides towards you
  • If its completely open, then locate the speaker and unscrew it.
  • Check the connection wires for quality
  • Mostly its good to scratch the leads of the wire to remove copper oxide layer
  • Take the new speaker, check the holes on the door matching the speaker's
  • If needed, drill hole for screw and be sure that the new speaker is not more than 15cm diameter.
  • Connect the leads, fix the speakers.
  • Check the sound clarity with your car audio on.
  • If everything is perfect.. go on , fix the door panels
  • Mainly sure with the side clips of the panel, do not bent or break them.
  • Check for any balance parts or screws.
  • Screw everything back as normal.
  • You just installed a new speaker....
  • pls rate it!!

Do i have to remove the door panel to take off door speaker covers? Speaker covers are starting to rust and want to remove all 4 speaker covers on door just to paint them. Trying to remopve without...


I believe that your speaker covers are clipped in through the back of the panel and won't come out through the front without breaking some of the clips. The proper way would be to remove the door panels and remove the covers out the back of the panel.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can remove the panel

Removing a door panel on a 1988 chevy C15 truck


There should be a couple of screws on the arm rest that you need to remove and probably one on the door handle then you need to find something to pry the panel off with, without breaking the plastic clips. They make a special tool for this that you can buy for just a few dollars at any auto parts store. If attempting to do it without the right tool be careful not to break the clips.

I need to know how to get to the door speakers before i break anything. i dont know if you can take the speaker cover off or if yoy have to take off the door panel.


If you want to replace the speakers, you will have to remove the door panel. Removing the cover will only allow you to clean the cover or remove any foreign matter from the speaker cone.

Remove door panel


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Changing door speakers


The clip behind the handle requires a specialty tool available at any autoparts store. it is shaped like a U, but has little tabs on it to catch the ears of the clip.
After removing the clip, remove the plastic trim by the mirror... and a little trapdoor inside the door handle cup will have a screw in it.
The rest are just push-clips, so start at the bottom, and pull toward you... working your way around the door.

The tool looks like this...
