Having troubles getting to the rear deck speakers on my 05 Hyundai 350L. The grills really dont seem to want to come off without problems putting back on. The rear deck cover has several things attached to it. Must be removed from above. What is the correct method of replacing the rear speakers.

Hey there, rear speaker installation can be a total pain in the a$$ depending on the car. Some speakers are bolted in inside.the trunk and yes, a chosen few have to be disassembled in order to get the rear speakers out. In most cases, the rear seats (if they don't fold) can be easily removed with a couple of bolts. The real pain is getting the deck lid cover off and back on without causing it to rattle once back in. This is also the point where I would suggest going to your local stereo shop and picking up some Dyna-mat, since you're already going to be under there, might as well do it right, but to answer you initial question, some speakers can be removed by lifting the speaker grill off and exposing the screws. The angle might be tough with the rear window, but and angle screwdriver or flexible drill bit driver works wonders.
I should not try to answer this as I have never seen the inside of a 2001 740 trunk but..........
I am pretty certain that you will need to pull up the trunk lining and it won't be easy. If you want to do this without damaging the lining, you will probably need to remove other parts, such as the rear deck speakers and likely the rear seat back, to get the lining out.
Or you can just take a box cutter to the lining at the top of the shock tower and glue it back when you are done. Much quicker.
How much do you care about how the inside of the trunk looks? Getting the rear speakers out of a 10-year-old BMW without damaging the speaker grills is tricky as well, and I would be a lot more worried about the appearance of my speaker grills than my shock towers.
Are you looking from the trunk to the top of the rear deck? You are correct though in most factory installed audio systems, the size and quality of the speakers is unique and low quality. Generally any aftermarket speakers you buy will have to be bolted using holes that you drill in the deck. Also most car audio place will cut the deck with a saw in order to enlarge the holes for better sound. You may want to consider using POP rivets as fasteners for the new speakers because getting under the glass to use screws can be tough.
Remove the rear seat, pull up and out on the bottom half, remove the sides of the back- one bolt on bottom of each side,remove the backrest, then remove the whole deck lid with speaker grills in it , then you can replace the speaker grills.

check the speakers in the rear deck, in the rear hatch or trunk, often the two wires that come out of the speaker touch if that happens it will short out the speaker drivers in the radio most times no permanant damage will occur. separate the wires so they do not touch,or touch the metal speker base, that may not be the problem but its a start..
You have to take the door panels off.
The front speakers are 6"
So remove the front door panels, unbolt the factory speakers, bolt the new one in the existing holes, reinstall the door panels.
The grills will look factory, but you will have better speakers. Nice way to keep the good stuff hidden from prying eyes.
