How you doing? Mike from 1Aauto. 2011 Ford F-150, going to show you how to remove and install the rear speakers.

Rear door panel, we're going to start by removing this panel back in here. Pull the handle out and put a 90 degree pick back inside. Get it locked in and pull.

Now we are going to pull the panel off up here. There's two clips: one down here and one up here. Insert the tool and pry. This is the right tool to use, these red trim tools are available at 1aauto.com.

There are four bolts that hold the panel on--an 8mm bolt here, and three 6mm bolts, and we will remove those using a socket and ratchet extension. Right, your 90 degree pick again, you're going to pull this panel up right in the corner. Work it underneath, make sure you get a good bite, and pull straight up. And then pull up and go to the front. Same thing, straight up. Disconnect the switch by pressing the tab here, and now the panel will lift up and come away. And small flat head screwdriver--there are two tabs on the cable and once you release those two tabs, twist the cable round, and bring it up and out.

And to get this out of the door panel, what I like to do is twist it until the tabs are up and down and then it's pretty easy to pry up, and you lift up to release that back tab. And then you push down on the top tab and push it out.

Four 5.5mm bolts hold the speaker in place. Remove those. Always end with one of the top ones last. Okay, speaker comes out and there's just a lead right here on the bottom. There's a tab--press the tab up and disconnect.

And install a new speaker. Plug it in and put it back in place. It is magnetic back here, so it's going to want to maybe twist around a little bit. Make sure you use the 5.5mm head bolts and thread them into place, and then tighten them up and they just need to be snug; you don't have to make them too tight.

All right, door panel back on. Just take your three clips at the bottom and put the panel in place, and it just rests there, and then take the cable, put it into the handle, just wants to be sideways, make sure it's up and down. Twist it, pull, and then push the green clip back in place, make sure this wire comes up through, and probably the hardest part is just making sure that your door lock comes up through the hole. Push this into place and then lift up. Feel your door lock into place, and now push it against the door. Slide it down and make sure it's nice and tight against the door, and now we can reinstall the four mounting bolts. Thread in the 8mm and then thread in the three 6mm's.

Okay, and now put your three trim panels back in place. Your window switch--make sure these clips are still in place. If they're stuck in the door, you can push them down through and recover them, and slip them back on to the bezel. Reconnect your switch, and push it down in place. This panel beveled edge goes to the back. Put it in. Press it until it clicks, and then this top panel, curved edge goes on the top, and just make sure these clips are still on it, and they go right in the slots on the door. And you're all set.
