Default Install Guide for Door/Rear Speakers? 2007 Manual Window Rio?

Has anybody done a writeup on how to remove the stock door and rear deck speakers in the 2006-2009 Rio? Mine is an 07 with manual locks/windows. I already replaced the stereo with an Alpine deck and it was a total piece of cake, took 10 minutes.

But I really dont have any idea how the door panels come off to replace the door speakers and the only thread I could find on the read deck speakers wasn't very clear and had no pics.

Anything?

Not much help I know,but I have seen a utube clip where a guy showed how to sound-proof doors after removing door panels. Only 2 screws, 1 behind door opening latch,1 screw on the side of door near the window sill.then your usual skin clips. The utube clip was very clear on how to do it, good luck.

This is from the Kia factory service manual.

You can get a "door clip remover" or whatever its called from any auto store.

I was sold the wrong one, and after returning it to the clerk who seemed to know nothing (and I couldn't tell this at the time), I went to my Kia dealer and got them to remove the rear window winder handles for me. It cost me nothing.

As of a week ago, I've had both of the door and window handle attachments rattling around in the storage compartments on the doors, awaiting some money to purchase new speakers.

I need this type of schematic, but for the rear deck speakers in the 07 base model Rio and the front door trim removal.

Where would I find those schematics?
