Re: removal of rear speakers on 2000 oldsmobile intrigue

On a Oldsmobile Intrigue yes you have to remove the back seat to access the speakers, I just changed mine it's not that hard. First remove the bottom part by pulling the two release rings (1 on each side) where the seat meets the carpet. Next in the trunk pull the seat back releases to fold down the seat backs, plus unclip the release cables from the trunk (they come out with the seat back) Then there are 4 10mm bolts on top and 2 10mm nuts on the bottom remove them and take the seat back out. The rear deck has the speaker covers fastened to it so the whole deck needs to come out. There are 3 push pegs behind where the seat back was remove them, then all you need to do is push down in the back corners of the deck - there is a tab from the molding that goes into a slot in the deck, free them there and take the deck out. the speakers come out the top. It took me about 1 1/2 hrs to change speakers, after I paid for instrucions I'm sharing ; )

You should be able to reach them from the trunk, if not there should be a way to detach the speaker covers in the back dash, I never had to remove a seat to change speakers

How do you remove the rear speakers from a 2000 volvo c70 coupe

Hi, you will need to use a sharp instrument like a flat screw driver to remove it.It's a little hard to remove, but you will have to apply some little force to it, check for opening to know if there are screws to be loosen.Mine does not have..
Good luck and make sure if you don't really know how to remove the rear speaker, please contact an expert.Thank you.

How do i replace rear speakers for a 1995 toyota camry I need to know if the covers for the speakers or just how am I supposedd to get them off without them breaking can I use just something to wedge it...

If the rear seat does not fold down, it needs to come out prior to removing the rear deck lid cover over your speakers.

You can remove the rear seat by wrestling with the seat. You will have to work with it to get it out. Don't force to hard, but give it plenty of muscle and attempt not to break the clips that hold it in place.

Generally an "up" and "out" motion should do it.

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.

Need help installing 6x9s into a chrysler 300m can't get to the rear trunk speakers to install the need one

if you have 60/40 rear seats, fold them down, if not remove the seat back(a firm tug at the corners should do it) the rear deck(where the speakers are) should lift up. this may take a little gentle persuasion.(the trim on the sides of the rear window may have to be removed as well) this should expose the factory 6x9's and they're mounting screws

Installing 4x10 speakers in the back of a 1984 cadillac eldorado

I can't remember your car exactly but if your speakers are in the rear deck, you often times have to start by removing the bottom portion of the rear seat, then the back portion of the rear seat, then the deck cover. Sometimes the side plastic pieces have to come out too. It's a pain but that is the way it gets done.

Rear speakers

I don't think i've done a cobalt yet, but all cars are pretty much the same. The ywill either mount from the bottom or more likely from the top. For the top type, you have to unclip the bottom of the rear seat. Unbolt the top half of the seat. Figure out how to remove the carpeted shelf cover (sometimes have to remove side trim). Remove old speakers. Wire and mount new ones (observe proper positive/negatives).
