Hi.

Could someone please give me detailed instructions on how to change my current door speaker covers?

I have the grey sparkly ones in my MY99 996 C2 and I want to swap them over to silver ones I just bought.

I have read Loren's TSB on removing the door panels but it also says this is not necessary to get access to the speakers. Also the UK cars have an alarm system that just keeps going off if the battery is disconnected. I dont fancy mesing around with the airbag.

Is it an easy job to change these? If not Ill have to return them.

Thanks in advance

Ravi

You donot have to access the speakers, but still have to remove the door panels. Remove 4 hooks of the old speaker covers with some small tools (ie. flat bed driver). Not sure about the alarm though.

Could I have a bit more info about the door panel? I thought that there were specific screws that could be removed to allow the panel to swivel enough to reach the speaker covers. Many have mentioned on various threads here that the panels dont have to be completely removed?

Im really confused now-help!!

Here is the link for instructions of door removal (Boxster). I recommend to remove the door before replacing speaker covers, because it's much easier and safer that way. When you can swivel the panel, you almost remove the panels anyway.
