Putting in New Speakers Tomorrow, Help

so I have a couple questions , how does one remove the door panels and the back felt stuff behind the seats to get the rear ones in?

second is there anyway to make the speakers show, or do they have to stay behind that guard in the front and under the felt in the back?

thanks guys!

making them show involves a bit of custom work though...

You have to remove the crank. It's easier if you have a removal tool. But I use a paper clip or a pick. On the base of the crank away from the handle is a little slit. It's hard to see unless you really look. There is a metal clip in there holding it on. Get something in that little slit and pull the metal clip out. It's kinda hard to do, but with a little patience youll get it

With a paper clip use pair of pliers to make a small hook on the end of the paper clip.. very small hook. Use the hook to grab the metal clip and then pull

Did this two weeks ago and nailed it first try with a paperclip on each side! I was proud of myself.

Also, if you don't want to buy crank tool, take a used wash rag (cloth) and pull it up between crank & door panel. Make sure crank handle is pointing "knob-down" and then keep tugging and wiggling up on rag to pull wire clips out. This is my "old school" window crank removal tool...works every time.

That's a good one^ also be careful not to lose the clip. They sometimes like to shoot off the handle and disappear
