    The passenger door area or the rear seat? Trunk speakers are the easiest ones in the car to replace.

    Removing the huge panel is the most difficult part. I think theres a few screwes holding down the panel, one in the bottom and one near the coat hanger, I can't remember. I would give it a once over to double check for any screwes/bolts, and the rest are clips and it pops right off. From what I remember too, it really isn't any fun putting back on. But once its off, a few more bolts hold in the speaker, which is a subwoofer, and the wiring harness that uinclips. Elemental Designs e3.6 / eu700 Subwoofer SALE! This is a link to sweet subs which are still on sale. write up: How to replace the stock subs with eu700s This is the write up on how to properly seal them and get the best sound out of them. I would make sure these will work for your car.

    don't remove the panel, it's a freakin headache and there is enough space to work around it, plus you can pull on it and bend it as needed.

    the existing speakers come out with a 7mm drive.

    I agree.

    There are 2 catches on each side of the spreaker grill. It pops out pretty easy. I gentley used a screw driver pop the speaker grill off.

    The sail panel are the drivers (subs) that panel is cake to pull the highs are in the front doors and behind the rear seats. i put a four chanel in and replaced the fronts with 6 1/2 rockford power series and didnt use the very back speakers then used the same speaker for the sail istead of using it as a dedicated woofer. I had to drill my own holes to mount the speaker because i think they use a 6 3/4 size speaker instead of 6 1/2
