JVC KD-G420 in 2000 Toyota Tocoma

I recently bought a used 2000 Toyota Tocoma with a JVC KD-G420 in it. Before I bought it, I noticed that the driver-side speaker wasn't working. I figured that i could just fix it when I got home. I took off the door siding and all of the wires were connected, so I wanted to check the output of the reciever to see if the wires were connected to it. I can't seem to figure out how to remove it from the dash board. I NEED HELP!

Today's in-dash cd players are a 2 part mounting system. One part is the carrier chassis that is hard mounted to the dash. Then the cd player slides into part 1 and latches. To remove player from part 1, insert 2 long and narrow metal tools along each side to un-latch the player. The tools come with a new unit. To make these, try making them out of 1/16 inch thick metal and trimming to following dimensions: 6 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and at one end, narrow down to about 1/8 inch about 1 inch from the end. deburr all edges. This 2 part system is designed for anti-theft defense.

Jvc kd-g340 rear speakers not working. I recently bought the car with this unit installed. I noticed that there is a l/r cable, power, ground in the trunk which means there was probably a subwoofer...

check the wires in the back of the stereo if not then make sure the back speakers are not hooked up to a internal amp and if it is make sure that it is not blown
