Hi. I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

We're going to pull this trim piece off. We're going to use a trim tool. Go under here and pry up. It may be a little bit tricky over here. We can go back here, and pry up back here. Some clips that are holding this down. Grab it and pull up. As you can see, these are the different retainers that were holding it down. And to disconnect the electrical connectors, you're going to push on this little lock and pull the connector out, just like that. And then same on this one. Push that little lock, and pull that connector up.

We're going to remove these two Phillips head screws. We'll use a Phillips head screwdriver. Pull those out.

Next I'm going to use a trim tool. And there's some clips that hold the door panel on. We're going to go inside. Pry out on the clips like that. I'm going to go all the way around the door panel. Pop those all out. Now I grab the door panel, lift up, and pull it out. I'll disconnect this cable, you know, lift up, pull out, pull the cable to the side, pull the ball out.

I'll disconnect this electrical connector. There's two little tabs on the side here. You'll squeeze those. I'm going to move this handle back, and then pull this connector out. You may have to wiggle it a little bit. Just like that. Pull the door panel off.

All right. We're going to remove the speaker. I'm going to use a 7mm socket and extension in a ratchet. We'll take this bolt out. I'll use a trim tool, get in behind here, pry this out a little bit, and slide it up. The connector is right here. You push down on the connector. I'll use my trim tool and pull the wiring harness off. And there's your speaker.

Okay. Now we're going to install the speaker. Line the connector up. Lock it in place. Take the wiring harness. Push that back in place, and then line this bottom tab up with the bottom of the door, and then lock it in. Take the bolt, get that started, and then snug it down. Be careful. It is plastic, so don't tighten it too tight.

All right. I'm going to connect this electrical connector first. I'm going to line it up. Push it in. And then slide this handle over. Lock it in place. Then we'll connect this cable right here, and we slide the ball through that hole. Go to the side and lock that in place.

Now we're going to push this lock knob through the hole here. Just guide it through, and then line your upper part of the door panel up. You're going to have to push it in so it locks in place near the weather strip. Once that's in place, guide the door pins in place, and then push them down. Make sure the door panel's flush with the door.

And we're going to install these Phillips head screws. Snug that down, and same with this one. Snug that down. Now we're going to connect this electrical connector here. That goes to the mirror switch, and this one goes to the master electrical switch, right there. Line this up and lock it down.
