Probably shouldn't have the doors ripped off! Usually the speakers have a cover which you can peel off to reveal the speaker unit. There should be a few screws at the top of the unit that you can unscrew which will make the speaker pop out. After that unhook the wire and replace with a new speaker and do the steps in reverse. Of course there is always the possibility that your door panel will have to be removed in order to get to the speakers. Best places to go would be Best Buy, Circuit City, or similar places. They will have speakers and that should be a cheap option. Good luck!

It's not that easy to replace the speakers in the front doors. The cover slides off very easily. Just open the door and slide the cover off towards the hinges of the door. However the speakers are not attached to the door panel with screws but rivets. I ended up drilling in the middle of the rivets to make them split to make the speakers come off. I used screws to mount the new speakers. Also, be careful when sliding the covers back on. Take a good look at "what should go into what", before you do it. Make sure you align the cover right and that it's flat against the door panel before you slide it back on. I broke some plastic pieces on the back of the covers by not being careful and not aligning them correctly before I tried to slide them back on. Good luck! - Jerry
