Rear Speaker Removal Tutorial - 3 Door

Postby A13XDT » Fri Jun 06, 2008 1:11 pm

After finishing my exams in Uni I finally had a spare day to get round to fitting my Pioneer TS-E1396 's in the back of the meggy. While I was at it I figured best to take photo's and i couldn't find a guide photo guide on any forum.
So here goes.

Time needed: 2-3 Hours

Tools needed: T20 and T45 Torx Bits
Small Ratchet or Multi Screwdriver
Large Ratchet with Extension
Pliers
Crimp Tool and Spade Connections
Electrical Tape or Heat Shrink

Image

Just to show the difference between standard and new speakers, no comment on the magnet sizes.

Image

Image
I started with taking the boot light housing off.

Image

The using the same size bit took out the little screw beside the seat back.

Image

Next, using the T45 bit, unscrewed the front seat belt rail.

Image

Lift the front rail to about the 10 past position, you should then be able to pull it out of its rear mount.

Image

Now, it makes it much easier to remove the bench are back of the rear seats. The bench parts just unclip, while the backs need to be unbolted from the bottom. Once the bolts are removed the seat should slide backwards and lift off a semi tight bolt that is almost in the boot.

Image
Image
Bolts should be loose enough for the bracket to slide off
Image

Then, pull up the side moulding from the door sill.

Image

Once the moulding is loose, you can start pulling the rear 3/4 panel from the door side, theres loads of those silly little clips that may snap or bring both parts with it. Be careful the speaker cable is attached by an elastic band to the panel so don't pull it out of the car without undoing this.

I cut the original connector off, and replaced it with a spade connector to allow me to connect the new speaker. I also put a spade on the original connector so i can just change it if I sell the car.

Image

Speaker fitted:

Image

After testing that the speaker worked I taped up the connections with plenty of electrical tape.

Image

I refitted the panel with music still playing just to check I didnt lose a connection while doin it.

To refit everything is of course just the reverse of removal.

Thank You
Alex

Nice guide, looks in good detail as well with the pics, shame you didn't post this before I did mine :lol:

Although I would say I would of used the adaptor to change the cabling rather than cutting, easier to put back then :-D

Cheers Mate,
Yes, I was going to find an adaptor, but I had all the crimp stuff already, so just crimped on another spade connector the bit ive cut off. So saved myself a little bit of cash.

Very good guide mate,

TIP! if you mounting an amp, take a look at he seatbelt mounting point behind the panel if you want a decent mount point and to kepp everything hidden away!

litrally was going to do one now as i have a rattle :( but yours is top notch!

you can fit 6x9's into the rear here, you need to make a custom enclosure and is very tricky to find the right angle for the panel to sit back flat and the back of the speaker still to have room, only reason i say you Can fit one is because then you can have more power rather then just a 80WRMS, put myn in and amped to 150wrms and thers just not enough air heind the speaker and sounds crap, so taken out


just so poeople know.

have a good one boys n gals

Ahoj, potřebuju radu.
Chci se zapojit zadní reproduktory, kabely jsou zelené.
Který z nich je to, že + a -?
Na jeden z kabelů je vždy značka.
