I have a '97 Chevy Lumina and I am replacing the front speakers. Do I have to take the door skin off or do the grills pop off to get at them?

You have to take off the door panel usually there is screws inside or around the handle then sometimes some around the edge of the door where the door striker meets look for caps thaty pop out and make sure all screws are out then the rest pops off take a flat head screw driver or something similar and put it between the metal part of door and panel right there close to where the door latch is (where the striker plate meets) then get your fingers up under and do small jerks where the window is slide up and run door handle thru opening

I have a 2009 chevy aveo sedan. The back speakers are blown and I got speakers to replace them but I can not get the grill cover off to get to the screws to take the factory speakers out. Do I need to just...


Some cars are built nowadays where the bolts/nuts under the rear deck actually hold the speakers AND grills in place. If you back the nuts all the way off, it may allow the speaker and grill to lift out of the deck.

If this doesn't work you may need to pry/pop the grills out of their shroud.

Although they're always looking for ways to save four cents on a plastic plug, it's inconceivable that they would be built in a way that must be broken to be removed.

One other thing to check very closely is whether there are small screw-head covers, usually circular plastic pieces, that need to be popped out in order to access the screwheads. I see this more on door panels, but worth looking for.

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.

Im sittin here with the wiring harness for my 99 altima, and the wiring thing from the back of my pioneer deh p6700MP, i have no clue which ones to match with the other one?


Here's the manual for the Pioneer -->LINK<--.

This is the 2 options of install wiring on a 97 Altima, I'm not sure if it's exactly the same, I suggest that you don't trust these pinout if yours differ at all.

Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Pink
Radio Switched 12V+ Wire: Blue
Radio Ground Wire: Chassis
Radio Illumination Wire: Red/Green
Radio Dimmer Wire: Red/Yellow
Antenna Trigger Wire: Green/White
Front Speaker Size: 4′ x 6′
Front Speaker Location: Doors
Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Brown
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Black/Red
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Black/Yellow
Rear Speaker Size: 6 1/2′
Rear Speaker Location: Rear Deck
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Orange
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Black/Pink
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Blue
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Black/White

THERE IS AN ALTERNATE WIRING COLOR CODE

THERE IS NO CONTACT PIN OR EXISTING WIRE THAT IS GROUND !!!!! (some really strange things happen to aftermarket radios if you think the Red/yellow wire on pin 9 of the 10-pin connector is ground”!!!!!

Large 10-Pin Connector:
Constant Hot (Memory or Clock) =RED wire pin8
Switched (Ignition) Hor = Blue wire pin4
Left Front Speaker + = Blue/white pin1
Left Front Speaker - = Blue/yellow pin5
Right Front Speaker + = Brown pin2
Right Front Speaker - = Brown/white pin6

The Smaller (6-pin) connector is only for the rear Speaker:
Left Rear + = Red pin5
Left Rear - = Green pin4
Right Rear + = Blue pin2
Right Rear - = Pink pin6

Regards

Philip

1999 Chevrolet Suburban speakers


According to Crutchfield.com, 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.
