Hey guys and gals I am new here and have already searched the forums and found a couple of semi useful posts about replacing speakers and removing door panels. Unfortunately none of them actually spell out how to properly remove the door panels without scratching stuff up and breaking the clips. I bought a door panel tool from Auto Zone and it does not fit right in what appear to be the clip heads. I did find the hidden panels for the screws, but that does not loosen the door at all. I really need someone who has done it without damaging plastic to show close up video/step by step photos of how they removed the panels and what tool they purchased. I would really appreciate the help. My wife is not going to let me pry on anything without knowing the exact order things need to happen in :-) Also if you are interested in coming over and helping out I am located in South Gilbert, AZ and will happily buy you a 12 pack.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
UPDATE - It appears only the center of these little screw covers come out. Little poking and prying with a thin non-metal tool will pop them right off. I unscrewed all the screws and still can't figure out what is holding the doors on so tight...ugh.
UPDATE 2 - Okay so I referred back to the other post with pictures
and guessed the best I could where the poppers are and nailed it. I will post my own pictures later.
UPDATE 3 - The back door speakers are in! I actually removed the factory speakers and modified the speaker housing (cut out the speaker) to accept my new Infinity speakers, screwed them down and soldered the wiring to the existing connector on the factory housing so I can use the factory wiring clip. Purchased some 5/16 - 3/4" alan bolts and metal door clips to remount the housing. Drilled out the existing door mount holes and everything is snug and tight. I am very happy with the results and have placed the door panels back on. I am going to clean up and post pics in the morning and then tackle the fronts :-)
