I have no idea how to replace the speakers in my 2010 pontiac g3/wave SE (podium edition)

It's a 4 dr. with a trunk. it's also got 6.5" speakers in the rear deck. I am not sure whether I can replace them by taking out the plastic speaker cover or if I need to remove the whole deck/panel. if I do have to remove the panel/deck, how do i do that?

They were installed in one of two ways, they were either dropped in from the top or secured from beneath. I would first take a look in the trunk and see how they were mounted. Another possibility is to go to the dealership and ask to see the exploded diagram of the read deck of your car. They may even give you copies of the diagram if you ask.

I don't think the problem was the metal basket touching the vehicle sheet metal. It's very, VERY common for speakers to be mounted directly to sheet metal. I think what you needed was a spacer, not so much an insulator. Usually when speakers are bottom-mounted, there's a thick gasket on the front that prevents the speaker cone from coming into contact with the mounting surface. Its only function is to increase the distance between the speaker cone and the metal. Your first speakers probably lacked the spacer, so the cone was pushed up against the metal and couldn't move. This is what ultimately caused the damage. Keep in mind that even with your cardboard insulators, there'd still be an electrical connection between the mounting deck and the speaker basket, because of the metal mounting screws.

SOURCE: how do i remove the

The rear speakers in 2004 Nissan Sentra are mounted on the rear deck, rear seat head restraints. These speakers are secured to the deck steel metric nuts to the topic within the trunk. Cover it with plastic speaker grille of the speakers tweeters to prevent damage to delicate speaker cones. Several options are available aftermarket replacement auto shops and car electronics.

Try this, first thing you need to do is pop off the 3rd brake light, you push it toward the window and push it upward. Disconnect the wire from the 3rd brake light. Then fold all your seats down and pop out all the pins located around the area where the head rests usually sit. They go from one side of the car to the other, just get a flat head screw driver and use it as a lever to remove them, then you just simply lift the back panel off. There are clips and things that will pop as you take it off, so use some force in pulling it upward. but it will clip back on and wont break any thing when you put the cover back on. due to the seat belts you cant fully take that piece out of the car, i found that its easy just to pull the seat belts out to there fullest and put the cover where the trunk opening is. when your dont put the cover back on over the rear deck and just hit it a few times till you feel all the pins and clips go in. Replace all the pins you took out from lower part which you took out, and then replace and reconnect the third brake light. Its very easy ive dont it more then 3 times with installing speakers and wiring my spoiler bake light.

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 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 seat back bolts are under the bottom cushions...Hope this helps.
