Is that the right size for the door speakers? I thought they were two sizes of round speaker: one tweeter and one midrange...?
...and I cant get the door panels off. Is there another screw other then the one behind the door handle that I need to find? I tried prying it off but its on so tight I am scared I will break something. Pllease help as these speakers are shot and I want to hear some decent sounds again.
Follow the TechInfo article carefully and you should be okay. Random notes to add to that:
1) Pry the rear end of the puddle-lamp lens only far enough to release its latch, then pull it straight out. Don't try to pry the rear end completely out of the door just by swinging the screwdriver handle outwards; it'll crack off the end of the lens.
2) The collar at the top of the assist handle (with the LED floodlight in it) unclips at its forward edge, then swings out and unhooks from the back edge.
3) Wiring harnesses for the door-mounted switchgear (e.g. the outside mirror joystick control) have in-line connectors that enable you to unplug them from the door. It may be easier to remove the switches from the door when disassembling, then unplug them from their harnesses so they're out loose. When reassembling, it may be easier to install the switches in the door panel first, then hold the panel up to the door and plug in all the switchgear to its harnesses in one step (presumably how the factory does it, too).
