Take a flat screwdriver or other similar flat tool,gently pry between the window handle and door panel,you should just be able to see the clip that holds it on to the metal shaft of the window gear,you'll need a pair of needle nose pliers or a flat screwdriver to pull it off,to put it back on you put it on the widow handle and just pop it on the metal shaft.Hope this helps.

    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!!

    Cant remove back interior panel to change bad speaker


    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.
