    easy fix but the speakers can be tough to find I broke down and bought them from the dealership $400 but I found them later on the internet. But you just take the speaker cover off unscrew the phillips screws and pull them out. Mine where soldered in so I desoldered the old soldered in the new and replaced the screws. The speakers tend to stick in the fitting after being in so long so you have to be a bit forcefull. Also I used a very small phillips screw driver about 4in long because there isnt much room to work
