Tell me how to change the rear speakers.

I wan't to change the rear speaker, but had no idea hot to take the panel appart. So I unscrewed the two screws behind the seat, and when I tried to pull it, I might have broken two pieces of plastic that holds the panel cause now when I put it back, its not tight. But then I checked the speakers, and they had no screws. They look like they are permanently factory sealed. Does anybody know of a place that shows me how to remove the panel ( I don't want to f up the other panel, and remove the speakers and replace them?

This is the one stupid thing about the celi. If I'm not mistaken, you have to remove ALL the plastic in the trunk, the trunk sides, then those side panels next to the back seat just to acess the rear speakers. It's really not that hard though. Just like 4 screws and the rest is those plastic snaps.

Have you checked the install section??
from what I remember after those 2 screws everything else is snap-on. makesure when putting it back, that your white snap-ons are in place and just give it a good pound to push it in. as for the factory sealed speaker you can take a drill and drill it out.

Yeah, two screws up front, but also two more in the rear of the panel. You'll find you need to remove the back side trunk panel before that though, and to remove *that* you must remove the back trunk panel. I know, I'm in the process of doing it right now. If you didn't do that and pulled it off having only removed the front screws than I'm sure you broke something.

And yes, the speakers all the way around are riveted in and must be drilled out and replaced with nuts/bolt. Semi-sucky, but not as bad as it sounds.
