Okay, so I got two more BOSE front speakers for my 94GS Sedan. The ones in there right now are in bad condition. I was looking at this picture:

For the door panel removal, where can I get the tool to get the clips out? Any idea how much it cost?? I don't want to use a big flathead to seperate them, because everytime I attempted to do so, it felt like the door/clips where going to break. Obviously, I don't want to damage my car.

Thanks

P.S: I have bad experiences trying to wedge things out, I broke the third brake light in my 90L Coupe that way (Damn thing!) or the scuff marks I left on it as well (clips etc..) Clips, and stuff that's stuck and I, just don't seem to get along.

I understand your fear, but you have to just pull on them.... they are way stronger than any other clips I have used. I would never have done it to this car until I saw someone else do it, and just how easy it was. Just make sure the screws are out, and pull. When you replace, make sure the pegs are straight.:)

There's only four screws right? I noticed the ones in the armrest don't want to fall out, althought they look completely loose, they just look stuck.. Hmm.. i'll continue tomorrow, daylight is gone :(

Yeah, two in the door handle, and two in the arm rest..... Can't think of any others.

Then just pull along the edges to release the clips. The top edge is hanging on the door, so once you release all of the clips, lift the panel upward to remove.

Use a little elbow grease though as they have probably never been moved. They will make a snaping sound that will make you cringe, but you will see they are allright.... and defentialy remember to take all the screws out. I busted one of the mounting pod things on a botched attempt at taking off the panel on my sedan.:rolleyes:
