how do I open door panel to replace speakers
I have a 2006 Chevy Colorado. Need to replace a speaker. The factory one is blown. How do I access the door panels?
You will have to remove any panel screws (arm-rest, door handles, etc) and then pry the door panel from the frame. You do this by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the retainer clips out of the door frame while not damaging the door panel (usually cardboard). Installation is done in reverse.
I recommend using proper gm upholstery tool, instead of gouging up paint work and getting rust problem later. But if ya wanna use a screw driver, at least your rusty door will sound good - ha ha
