Well it take about 20 minutes to take of everything you need to get to the speakers, its pretty hard at first but once you get the hang of it its pretty easy, theres more than one bolt you have to take off, first you have to take off the bolts in the side of the dash, theres also screws underneath the dash, and you have to take of the inside of the glove box, and in the drivers side there are couple of nuts you have to take off, you know where the dash light dimmer is well theres another little cover u have to take of in the other side thats where the nuts are, i hope that helps a little i havent done it in a while i just replaced the stock ones with boston acustics 3 1/2 in. speakers

You pretty much have to take off the whole lower dash. Get a Haynes manual, if you don't have one. It shows you how to take everything apart. I've got pioneer 4x6s in there. I had to fabricate little boxes to get them to fit properly, but it sounds good.

thats why when you have the dash apart, you clean it and install GOOD speakers, and maybe some lil boxes for them.

That's exactly what I did. Put in a pair Infinity separates up front, with the tweeters "floating" on custom aluminum brackets that I fabricated. The 4" mids are in their own aluminum enclosures (little project boxes I picked up at Radio Shack and filled with poly-fill) in the factory locations as well.



While I was at it, I removed the speaker grill fabric and re-covered them with black polyester double knit, like you see on home speakers. A little patience, some rubber bands and a glue gun, and the grills came out sweet.

It's easy once you know how!!

:D I'm new here and want to thank everyone soo much for all the info on installing front speakers.Yes modifing thos wimpy plastic (for the lack of better term boxes)boxes to fit a 4 inch speaker is a bit of work but with my wife's help(I have brain damage) it's going fine and I hope it sounds good and I only end up with 20-30 extra screws :oops: and no new rattles in the dashboard.Today I cut up the driver's side Box and tomorrow I start cutting the wood to mount 6 by 9's on the lower dashboard trim, pointing down towards the feet. Thanks people for all the info I appreciate it lots

good ideas, it is a pain to replace those lil suckers in the dask. i was also thinking about puttin 4's in the dash wit boxes but decided to put 6 1/2's in the doors. i ended up takin those factory pockets out and building the door out wit some pieces of mdf. things to do.
-make a templet out of cardboard (trace the spot where the board will go)
-use templet and cut boards
-check if boards fit right
-sand down if they dont
-cut out holes for speakers
-cut out pockets on door
-carpet boards
-mount speakers
-run wires to doors
-then mount everything up wit some screws long enough to do the work
also make sure your board will cover up the hole that you cut out on the door.
