1. Front kick panels are easy, turn the clips 1/4 of a turn
with a hex wrench. There are several small trim clips that
you can remove with a screwdriver. Removing these will provide
easy access to the speaker.
2. There is two way to connect the new tweeters: in the original
location, remove the old one (could be hard to pull out but
they will come) then glue the new one in place.
Or use the stock location of the midrange in the dashboard.
1. The rear speakers are harder. You need to use a needle
noise pliers for some of the screws and a small Philips screwdriver
to remove the cover. The rear speakers are into a bowl shaped
black plastic. You don't need to remove the rear shelf, except
if you use speakers bigger than 6.5".
3. Connect the factory wires
to the speakers. Stop here if
you are just changing the speakers.
For huge speakers: you've got to remove the shelf and the
C pillar trim pieces too. Start by pulling up on the front
of the seat part of the back seat. Then pull up and out to
remove the seat back. You should see several trim fasteners
holding the rear shelf in place remove those. The rear shelf
should slide out. To remove the C pillar trim panels just
grab them and gently pull them out. They're held in by tension
fasteners. WARNING: the C pillar trim pieces area a hell to
get back in place.
Passive crossover for new amplifier installation.
If you changed your whole system (bye, bye old oem amp) and
installed a new amp, you need to install the passive crossover
included with your component speakers.
The best location for the passive crossovers is in the trunk,
at the fare back, behind the carpeting, you will find an area
that is deeper than the rest of the trunk. This is the ideal
spot for the two (if you have coax at the rear) or four passive
crossovers. Ideal because the wiring harness of the stereo
is right there. Check the wiring
to connect the wires to the crossovers.
Just use double sided tape and place them in their new location.
