Remove the little cosmetic piece of the mirror inside the car, remove the door pull, remove the opener lever disconnecting the snaps holding the mechanism to the rods. get a tool and go around the edges and bottom loosening the snaps. open the window and lift the door panel up and out. replace the speakers. put the panel back on in reverse order. install the pull and the cosmetic piece. go get drunk. wake up the next day and with a set of needle nose pliers attempt to hook those snaps back onto the rods and reinstall the opener lever mechanism.

Directions for replacing the belt on 1998 Saturn sl2

Get a new belt, you will need to know whether SL2 DOHC or SL1 SOHC and whether or not you have A/C to get the proper belt. Remove the right front tire and put car on a jack stand, remove the plastic service panel behind the wheel. There is a little picture on the radiator cross member of a wrench on the tensioner. You are going to have to get a long open end wrench on the tensioner, and make it longer with a homemade extender, relax the tensioner and have a helper then pull the belt off. Replace with new belt by reversing process. The dog bone mount will be in your face behind the service panel you may want to replace it while you are at it and the tensioner too if it has not already been replaced.

How do i remove the door panel on a 99 saturn sl2?

Front door remove the mirror first, from the inside out small panel comes off with a screw and two or three large nuts are exposed.
Both doors remove the exterior door handle, lift it up and you will see
two pins which can be pushed out and then the handle comes off.
Get a star driver and remove ALL the bolts holding the plastic panel onto the door frame.
Lower the window and lift the panel up and away, gently.

How to take off door panels on a 1998 Saturn SL2 to replace speakers.

You have to take off the door handle. You have to disengage the door locking mechanism from the door handle, then unscrew the panel and take it off.



The door handle unhinges from the locks and from the window controls.


If your windows are electric, just unsnap the cord attached and leave it hanging out.


You may have to work with the door handle as it won't come out of the slot very easily and you don't have a lot of room. A flat bladed screwdriver with a long metal piece should work to unsnap it.


Hope helps (remember rated this help).

How do i remove the driver side door panel? i have a 94 saturn sl2.

There are two plastic slip pins that on the handle that will require a small pick to knock them out with. They will come out either pushing them towards the front of the vehicle or if you are pushing them out towards the back fender direction. Make sure that you aren't in gravel or grass since these pins need to go back in and are easily lost. After that, there are torx screw on the inside of the door. When you have removed all of them the skin of the door will remove from the outside.

Power window won't operate

Yep! There are two slide pins on the door handle that are very small. They need to be pushed out with a pick type devise. Be careful not to loose them since they will need to go back in the same slot...they can be pushed forward towards the front of the car, or backwards towards the back of the car. Then you will need to take the torx screws out of the inside panel. It might be a # 30 torx wrench...I not exactly sure.
