Yeah, they break off! No need to get shirty mate.

The only way to get to the speaker without breaking the grilles off is to remove the door trim as has already been mentioned.

Very easy to remove and refit.

Your 4" speakers are not going to do any justice the 6" stock will prolly do a better job. (if working)

6" or 6½" is what you need to replace them with.

Your gonna have more problems undoing the damn grill.

Theres like 10 screws around the trim,
Wind down window and remove handle
1 holding the finger grip in the door.
2 holding the arm rest
Pull out the snip *button*
Undo the mirror wire/toggle

lift up trim.

Yes you'll have more troubles with mounting 4" speakers in a 6" hole.

but you'll find out.

umm..


ok, I'll reply logically without any sexual comment.

They are piss easy to take off, replacing them is even easier.

give it a go. they're not complex and you'll have no 'hidden' surprises.

you just undo, unclip and remove.

very easy.

Mate those little speaker grilles are f**k hard to get off. as said has about 10 pins that go through the trim then have metal lugs holding those pins in tight. Door trim takes 2 minutes to take off and go back in the same amount of time. I would bet both me nuts that you'd break the grill trying to take it off without taking off the door trim.

Put in 6 inch speakers in the front doors. Last week a set of 3 way 6 inch speakers were fit in the front doors of an EF Futura and sound awesome.

Do not mess with the grilles as you would have to buy new ones.

Just look around the door trim and see where it screws in and how it fits onto the door skin.
