I'm sure someone will chime in - quite a few people on here have done it.

use a thin knife or pry to get inside the upper part of the tweeter pod, along the front edge of the window frame. if you pry a little bit, it will come off easily, just need to disconnect the plug, which is covered by black foam tape.

for the rest of the panel, there are two screws along the bottom edge of the door, one in the armrest pocket, one in the handle pocket and some pop clips.

Roll the windows down. If it's the front windows, remove the tweeter enclosures first.

Remove the screws. There is a 'hidden' one behind the door handle under a cover. Once that is off, remove the 'cup' around the handle. Then gently pry the panel away from the door. There are several clips holding it in place. Take a flatblade screwdriver and run it between the plastic and the door if that helps with the clips. Once you have all of the clips popped, you will need to pull the panel up and unhook it from the window.

The panel should now be free. If you pull the panel back, you will see some harnesses hooked up. BEFORE YOU UNHOOK THEM, roll the windows back up. It will help when you replace the speakers. Then just unhook the harnesses, trying to keep track of what plugs in where. There's not alot so it shouldn't be took hard.

I just finished mine today.

Front: Remove the tweeters first; gently pry at the top corner to release the clip then pivot off at the bottom. The connectors release with a push in the middle; the release is hidden under the foam. Try each middle until you can pull the plug apart.

One covered screw near the top outer edge; two more near the hinge. Two uncovered at the bottom. One covered by a round rubber in the bottom of the door handle. One covered by a square plastic cover in the door unlatch handle trim.

[attachmentid=2769]
[attachmentid=2770]
[attachmentid=2771]

About six round plastic clips around the edge; after the first is released with a panel tool you can release the rest with your hand.

[attachmentid=2772]

Pivot away from the window, lift and wiggle away. Left has 4 connectors; right has 2.

Rear: One covered screw near the top outer edge; one more near the hinge. One uncovered at the bottom. One covered by a round rubber, one covered by a square plastic. Clips are similar.

[attachmentid=2773]

Drill out the four 3/16" rivets and remove the factory speaker. You'll have to remove the rivet bodies; the only tool I know that does a good job is a Dremel with a cutoff wheel followed with a center punch and several swear words.

You'll need adapters because the speakers are non-standard size; Scosche adapters from Crutchfield You have to drill 3 holes for the adapters; I used 3/16" aluminum pop rivets. The Scosche adapters take 6 1/2" speakers.

I also recommend "shortie" XTC foam baffles also available from Crutchfield. They go in behind each speaker, protecting it from dirt and water. They also give a more natural sound. Although some don't like (or think they wouldn't like) the effect with certain speakers, I like my vocals accurate. I just added them behind my Polk db-650's, and vocals sound much better without the midrange rattling around in the door cavity.

If you decide to do the radio, amplifier and/or subwoofer, there's loads of help here, too.

Edited to add links and pictures.

I was looking around for this info, and I also came across this:


It's more of a montage than a video, but it's something.


My problem (well, my car's problem) is that I am hearing a near-constant plastic-rattling noise that I feel is coming from the passenger side door. It seems to be associated with the engine and the road exceeding a certain frequency, which then sets up the sympathetic rattle in the door.

Of course, to make things difficult, my passenger thinks it's coming from the driver door, and when I move my head towards the middle of the front seat, the sound sort of centralizes on the dashboard.

Anyone ever chase a similar noise down?

Sounds like something I had a hard time tracking down. Turned out to be a loose plastic panel behind the rear view mirror. The rattle would bounce off the windshield and sound like it came from everywhere. Not sure if your car has anything like that.

I also just read to make sure there's nothing rattle-y in my central "cubby hole"

Not sure what plastic panel there would be behind (or in front of, depending on your POV) the rear-view mirror. But I'll look. I'm about to go on a 500 mile round-trip, and I KNOW this rattle will drive me insane!

Well...MORE insane!
