I'd like to replace my passenger side front door 6.5'' speaker.

It has blown. I have removed the screen and unscrewed the screws but the speaker still seems solidly in place. What am I to do next? Robert.

The speaker may seem still attached because the magnet may be stuck to the door, also they sometimes use a type of weatherseal that makes them stick, try prying it away with a paint scraper or flat bladed screwdriver.Good luck and please rate this answer,thanks.

How do I remove and replace front Bose speakers in 2004 Suburban? Will I need to remove door panels? Thanks

1. Remove the triangular shaped panel behind the side-view mirror (A). It is held in place by two clips, so just gently pull it back, work your fingers under the panel, and pull firmly. Be careful not to break it.

2. Pry off the door lock cover (B) with a flathead screw driver or other flat object then remove the screw behind it.

3. Remove the plastic plug in the middle of the hinge side of the panel (C). These can be a pain. I had a cheap, plastic putty knife that I cut a groove out of the middle to make a pry tool. It worked well. If you don't have a puller for these, just work around it slowly pulling it out.

4. Remove the screw hiding behind the door pull/arm rest on the left side (D). I used a 7mm bit driver, but I think a 9/32" will work too.

5. Remove the cap in the middle of the latch side of the panel (E) to reveal a torx head screw and remove that(used a T20 size bit).

6. Pry off the trim piece around the door handle (F). It comes off fairly easily.

7. Remove the screw in the middle of the bottom of the panel (G). This is another 7mm screw and holds in the storage container (H), which can now be removed (just pull it out).

8. Being careful of the wires attached to the panel, lift and pull it slightly away from the door. Remove the wire and bulb from the light in the bottom corner of the panel (I). When I did this , I pulled at an angle and the bulb popped off of the end of the plug. It was a pain to fish back out of the light housing, so pull lightly and straight out and the bulb should come with it.

9. Now you have a choice. You can reach behind the door panel under the power door, window, and mirror control panel (J) and unplug the wires blindly. This may or may not be possible if you haven't seen how they're plugged in to begin with because some of them are tricky to release. The other option is to get down and look on the under side of the control panel (on the back side of the door panel) and remove the screw (another 7mm) that holds it in place. You can then pull the control panel out from the door panel (it is still held in place by a clip on the bottom side) and look at the wires to unplug them.

After all of that, your door panel should now be free. Now you can replace your speaker or whatever it is you needed to do. It sure was a pain the first time, but now that I've done it once, it won't take nearly as long the next time. The reason I went into detail with the power door, window, and mirror control panel is because I read in my Haynes manual that it was held in place by two clips and pulls right out. I found out the hard way, there was a freakin screw on one side! I ended up tearing it out. Whoops. I didn't damage things that badly though, and I can still replace the screw.

I hope this will help someone!

***Note: My truck came with tweeters in the front doors, which also had a plug that had to be removed before the door panel was free.

I dont know how to install stereo speakers in my citroen saxo VTR near the rear seats. how can i do this?

First you have to remove the old ones...

You cannot just clip out the rear speakers, as the cover over them is attached to the rear panel (2 door Saxos)

In order to take out the rear speakers, from what I remember...

1) Take out rear seats

-Get yourself in the car through one of the front doors
-Once inside face toward the rear seat
-Reach for gap between where the upper and lower parts of the seat join
-Pull the bottom half up and towards you
-Once it is vertical lift straight up to detach from pivot
-Get it out of the car to give you space

2) Undo 2 bolts
- Having just removed the lower part of the seat there are now 2 bolts visible 1 located each side of the car, next to the rear speaker panel.
- Undo the bolts, they are long so require lots of twisting until free
- Remember where the washer sat and place in safe location out of car

3) Lift up rear window seals
- Open rear windows
-Lift up the rubber seal which lies on the bottom part of the window
-(It is attached all the way round the window trim, only lifting it up is neccessary)

4) Remover upper seatbelt bolts
- Locate rear seat belts (side belts only)
- Locate top of seat belt fixing point
- Remove circular plastic covering on top joint of each belt (1 each side)
- This reveals seat belt joint bolt (1 each side)
- Undo bolts and place safely outside of car

- (Same for front seat belts required)
- Locate front seat belts
- Locate front seat belt joints at top of belt.
- Remove circular plastic covering (1 each side)
- This reveals bolt (1 each side)
- Undo bolt and place in safe location

5) Lower rear seat
- Open the boot
- Clamber in
- Locate where rear seat meets plastic trim (each side of car)
- Locate small plastic lever (each side of car)
- Push small plastic lever towards the front of the car (both sides same time)
- Meanwhile push rear seat gently towards front of car (helps if have a friend)
- This will lower seat
- (You do not want seat lowered completely, once seat is free in movement leave resting in normal position)

6) Remove rear speaker panels (requires trusted + competant friend)
-Friend Get in car sit where rear seat was on driver side (for space)
-You sit front seat passenger side
-You locate where rear speaker panel ends beside front door
-You pull rear speaker panel away from end at door towards opposite side
-You will notice part of rear speaker panel detach from car
-Friend and You pull off remainder of speaker panel from its poppers
-Notice lump of plastic preventing complete detachment from car
-Careful to prevent damage Friend and You need to move rear speaker panel towards front of car and up
-Remember plastic will flex, but is also capable of snapping
-Manipulating this action will get rear speaker panel detached from car...although still on the seatbelts themselves.

Notice how speaker is joined to hidden part of rear panel, rather than metal body work.

To remove rear speaker undo the 4 torx screws holding speaker in place, alongside wire joint (wire with plastic adaptor at end)

Do what you needed to do, and then return car to normal state by effectively reversing the above instructions.

(I accept no liability for any action you undertake from following these instructions.....yadda yadda)

If any problems contact a Sax-p I.C.E section expert, or if incounter any difficulties that the above cannot solve, any car audio installer can help, alongside most garages, including Citroen Dealerships.

The instructions above probably took longer to type than to actually perform, estimated time for completion is 40mins-1 hour.

Take the plastic pillar covers off of both sides of the car, remove the screws near the air vent outlets on each side, use a panel removal tool to unclip at each side and front of the upper dash panel and pull rearward from the front of the upper panel until the clips are cleared and lift and remove the upper dash panel. Remove the speakers covers and the screws holding in the speakers, disconnect speaker wires. replace with new speakers and then put everything back in the same order after testing the new speakers.

How to replace front speakers in a daewoo leganza 02

You will need to either remove the door card or the speaker grill on the door card. To do this you will need a set of thin nose pliers for removing door clips, a flat head screw driver and a phillips screw driver for any cross head screws. Use the flat head screw driver to pop the grill off, if the grill is not removeable you will have to take the whole door card off. To do this you need to remove the electric windows panel as well as the door handle and lock panel, from their disconnect them from their harnesses. Then remove all clips and screws holding the panel in place. The door card should come free without too much effort, pulling upwards and away from the window. Unscrew the old speakers and disconnect the wires from them. Wire your new speaker to the same wire configuration as the old one. Screw it in. Place the door card back on and then plug the harnesses back in and place the door lock and window locking panels back in place. Do the same for the other door.

A professional installation will cost about $80 I think, I did my door speakers on my car and all I had to do was pop out the grill so it was easier than I expected.

Speaker for ford explorer

Most Ford Explorers have screws at the door handle and maybe at the sides. Door should slide up off its hooks once screws are removed. You will find 5X7s but you can go larger.

1999 Chevrolet Suburban speakers

According to, you have 6 3/4" speakers in the front and rear doors, 4"x10" in the rear pillars. The 6 3/4" locations should be able to fit 6 1/2" and 5 1/4" speakers using adapters. I would imagine the same could be said for using 6"x9" speakers in the 4"x10" pillar locations.
