An off the wall question,I want to redo the radio system and i am having troubles getting the front speaker panels off the door and I dont want to bust them ( seeing as i have clumsy hands and a bit of a patience problem when things should come off easily,and a bad temper usually causes more damage ) any easy way to get them off?
You have to remove the door panel. There are two screws you need to remove. One is in door pull handle. There is rubber plug you have to pull to access the screw, There is also one in the door latch release.
Next use a door panel tool around the edge of the door panel to pop the pins out of the door. Be careful as they like to break easily. They are just plastic. They can be replaced but a dealership is the only place I know of that you can get them and they run around $2.50 a piece.
You might also need to remove the rubber window seal on top of the door panel. I have to on my 2002 2 door.
