Hello vobsterman,

While some new speakers do not match up directly in the vehicle mounting location, the procedure for mounting them is basically the same. First of all, you need to make sure that your speakers are the proper size to fit your vehicle. If you do not know what size your old speakers are, you can usually find out at www.modifiedlife.com. Then for a list of speakers that fit, go to Crutchfield's "outfit my car" and enter the vehicle information. If any special adapters or spacers are needed, the Crutchfield site will detail them. If you purchase speakers from Crutchfield, any mounting accessories and adapters are included free.

After you have your new speakers, remove the old ones using the instructions contained in the supplied "master sheet" for your vehicle and replace them with the new speakers.

Hope this helps.

FYI - I just took our 2004 Sequoia in because of speaker rattle coming from the front door speakers. Before I could tell them the problem, they guessed what it was. They see loads of Sequoias and Tundras with JBL systems due to the front door 8in speaker, basically, coming apart. His suggestion was to replace only the bottom 8in speaker, because the top tweeters usually are in good working condition. There is a minimal failure rate on the tweeters.

Front door speakers


I just replaced mine on my 2002 Diamante LS yesterday. It really isn't that difficult. To get to the front door speaker you will need to remove the door trim panel. This is done by pulling out on the bottom part of the panel. I used a flathead screwdriver to help with the separation. Just be careful not to scratch anything.

There are 4 or 5 clips that lock the panel on to the door frame. After you have pulled the clips out you will want to lift up on the separated panel as it hangs on a rail adjacent to the window. Pull the panel out far enough to reach behind and disconnect the various wiring clips. They have quick disconnect fittings and come out easily. You will also need to disconnect the door interior light by rotating the base about a half turn to get it out of the removable panel.

Once you have removed the door panel you will have full access to the speaker frame mounting. It has a removable plastic frame that you screw the new speakers in to. It attaches to the door frame with 5 or 6 Phillips type screws. I found it easier to remove the mount and get it ready to accept my new speakers. I just srewed it back on before actually attaching the speakers.

While the dealer spec for door speakers on a Diamante is a 6 3/4" speaker, a 6 1/2" will work just fine if you have a drill to pre-drill new screw holes. Just line the new speaker up on the speaker mount, mark where the new holes should be and then go ahead and drill them. Make sure the drill bit isn't bigger the the screw. It is a machine type of a thread and is easy to self thread with a regular phillips screwdriver.

After you have the speaker mount ready to accept your new speaker you can go back to your car, screw the mount back on to the door frame. Next attach the two speaker wires to the back of the new speaker. White goes to the positive post. (You might need to change the fitting type to match the car wiring and the new speaker) You can get some quick connect friction fittings and put one on the end of each wire that attaches to the speaker. Walmart, Autozone, Radio Shack all have these as they are readily available.

With the speakers in place, just reverse you installation of the door panel. I found it was easier to roll the window down so I could hang the panel back on the channel. Line up the clips and the bottom of the door, push in and you will feel and hear them engage. Once you are sure they are lined up correctly, go ahead and give it a good push where each clip attaches to make sure its on tight.

All done, enjoy your new sound system.
