1. Pull seat belt rose cover up and off.

2. Undo fastening screw behind it (be careful not to drop it into the chassis).

3. Detach side-panel lining by unscrewing the hex bolt for the rear seat latch. Pull locking lugs of side-panel lining out of the clips in the rear side section and move forward enough to get at the back of the speaker.

4. Disconnect the loudspeaker electrical plug connection and disconnect. Remove panel.

I think coupe and cab instructions are only minor and outlined in my earlier post. Hope you are able to get it out. There is a clip/hook on the window sill on my cab which you'll want to pry a little when pulling on the panel out after removing all the other screws and bolts. If you do break any clips, use JB Weld Quick which will glue them back to ensure a tight fit that is rattle free. It took me about 1 hr to do and I am due to get the panel back after reupholstering it. Loren's instruction was very useful that helped me when I removed it!!

Easy task + tight space + 90 degrees = PITA

BTW, I tried not to lose the screws, but of course, managed to do so.

Thx all.

Hehe... how did you think I knew not to drop it? ;)

I bought a new one - then found the old one a year later when I was doing something else.

Any advice on pulling rear side panel on a 2002 C4S? I plan on running a backup camera wiring.  Thanks.


Instead of removing the side panel and door sill trim, I'd recommend routing the camera lines under the center console and through the rear carpet. Much easier. I've done both.
