You will need to take out the plastic back rest first, and under it there is two screws that hold the panels in place. After that, you have to give some slack to the belts in order to take out the panels.

If you cannot Locate any Screws, First try looking for Screw Hole Covers or Plugs. If None, Just start at the Bottom and Pull. You may need to go to your Auto Parts Store and Purchase a Package of Door Panel Fasteners for the Panel. Usually you will Break 3 or 4 of these During Removal and Install. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

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!!

How is the rear speaker cover removed from a supercab fx4 f150 2004


The rear door panels are not like the front doors ( additional panel on the door panel ), the silver/gray rear speaker panel is part of the rear door panel.

Remove the panels next to the window ( should be spring clips ).
This should expose 3 bolts holding the top of the door panel on.

Next remove the rear window console panel ( spring clips on the side towards the cab, tabs on the side towards the door ).
Behind this should be a bolt.
Next remove the rectangle cover in teh door handle area, there is a bolt behind this.
should be 1 other screw at the bottom of the door panel, by the door sill area ( under the map pocket ).
The door is held on like the front doors, with large plastic hooks, so pick up on the door panel once all the screws are out.

Replace speakers on Ford Explorer Sport Trac


The front and rear door panels must be removed. The interior door handle will have to be removed, and the power window switch will also have be removed. This is held in by metal clips that secure it to the door panel. Do not be afraid to use a little force to get under the switch panel, and pry it from the door panel. Once you have all accessories off of the door panel, look for what may appear to be "plugs" in the door panel. These may conceal the presence of a screw. Also, check around the interior door pull for screws or "plugs". When this is done, use a medium to large screwdriver, or a trim removal tool, and start prying the door panel away from the door. Start at the bottom, and work your way around the door, until you get about 2-3 inches from the top of the panel where it meets the window. When you are at this point front and rear, simply lift up on the door panel, and it should come off easily. Once the panel is removed, you will easily find the speakers.
