How do i remove the door panels off a 1990 honda accord ex 4 door
There's a special tool used to pop the door panel off the the door frame. You could use a flat blade screwdriver as well, but this tool will do a better job. Get the door trim tool at auto parts store (pretty inexpensive).
First is to locate all the screws on the door panel, usually located on or near the arm rest/ door pull and on the trim where the door handle is located. In your case there may be small "buttons" which cover the screw heads .Use a small screw driver or small pick to lift these buttons which will expose the screw head. There may be one of these buttons on the upper portion of the panel as well. You just need to look for them. Then you insert the trim tool between the panel and door frame and pry the panel away. The panel is held to the frame with trim buttons or fasteners. Sometimes these fasteners break when they are popped, but they are replaceable(again, auto parts store).
Be careful not to pull too hard or yank the panel too far away from the frame , so as not to pull off any wires (speaker wires, elec door lock, etc). Once the panel is free, then its a matter of lifting up to disengage it from the top portion of the frame, where the panel channel fits into the frame on the inside of the window.
Speaker replacement - go to any electronics store that sells auto speakers and they can tell you which speaker will fit your vehicle. Or you can go on line. Look under auto speakers or audio, and again many sites have this fitment info for your vehicle.
