    Default rear speakers help.

    from looking down the forums I think we are all having the same problems with removing the door cards in the rear, i.e getting the window handle off.
    I've tried the obvious brute force by pulling but chickened out as started to see the leather cracking.
    has anybody actually done the rear speaker upgrades?

    Appriated any info.


    cheers ricky.

    wind the window down first
    pop the window switch out and unplug

    unclip the handle cover off ...this will let you get to the 2 screws

    at the bottom of the door panel are 2 more screws you need to take out
    then
    from the bottom of the door first ,,unclip the popper clips you will have to pull the panel if your dont have the tool to do this

    when you have pop all the clips off look behind the panel and unclit the door handel

    to then take the panel off you lift the panel up and it will come off

    if this is the fist time that its been off it will be tight,,,just take your time

    On the window handle there's a spring clip between the handle and the plastic washer,use a pair of small long nose pliers to push it off(keep an hand over it,they can ping a long way!)or buy the proper tool which are only a couple of quid and make it slightly easier.

    Just as tyreman said, the window winder handle is secured by a horseshoe shape wire clip, and handily enough the open ends will be behind the handle, meaning you will have to push it off the hard way, ( pushing behind the handle)..

    If it's the same as Vauxhall's of past years you can put a cloth behind the window winder handle and then pull down on either end of the cloth until it reaches the clip and this will normally spring it off - has worked for me over the years anyhow....
