You replace the rear speakers through the trunk.Locate the rear speakers in your trunk and there should be 4 screws or bolts and nuts hilding them in.Very easy removal and instulation.Hope that helped you out.

Most time the rear speaker (package self) is held in by a metal spring clip over a black carboard jute felt filled enclosure, unclip this retainner and speaker comes right out.

SOURCE: Removing the old Speakers

Under your rear seat in front where you put your feet, there are 2 plastic tabs you pull down on to release the seat, from there lift the seat up. 
Then if i remember correctly, your going to need a wrench to take out to bolts that hold the back of the seat in, and from there its pretty self explanitory.

NEED TO REPLACE REAR STRUTS HOW DO I GET TO THE STRUT MOUNTS 2001 BMW 740IL


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.

Changing the two back speakers in the 2003 Pontiac Grand Am


Always a good idea to upgrade speakers...Your factory speakers are normally removed from the underside of the rear shelf located in your trunk...6X 9 common size some 4 X 10...4 mounting screws on each corner, and a 2 wire connector...switch out is easy...some rare models have the rear speakers installed from the inside of the rear shelf...first check in the trunk for the speakers, and screws...if not there, you will need to remove the rear seat...to get to the speakers to switch out...first the bottom cushions then the top...bottom cushions have a large bolt on each side near the floor...top seat back bolts are under the bottom cushions...Hope this helps.

How to install rear hatch door struts on a 97Astrovan


in case you havent figured it out, or for the next person that needs help. . .

i needed to replace my rear window struts.
i stuck a flathead screw driver in each of the metal clips at each end of the strut and pryed them loose. the struts popped right off the mounts. i also unscrewed the rear speaker panel so i could remove the wire connecting the strut to the car (rear defroster?) and remove completely. i wanted to take the whole unit to the autoparts store and compare it to the new strut. when buying replacements, i noticed the new struts did not come with the electrical housing on the upper end, just a male thread. i was stumped because i couldnt get the housing off of the old strut . . .i didnt want to damage it trying.

i finally i got the nerve. all it took was a pair of channel locks (pliers). grip the rod tight enough to unscrew the housing from the rod. after breaking loose, it should come right off easily.

i realized after that i didnt need to open the speaker panel and disconnect the wire. i probably could have just unhooked the strut and unscrewed the housing (while the wire remained connected to the van), screwed the new strut back into the housing, and reattached the strut to the van.

installation is the opposite of removal. i also read on a few sites that its a good idea to replace them both at the same time.
