How to remove the loudspeakers from the door panels?

Post by atr » 07 Jul 2019, 12:43

I have to replace the loud speakers in my C5 X7 2010. I guess that the membrane is torn, especially on the rear doors speakers. I'm not sure, but it seems that it's more complicated than to remove the grille covering the speaker. please let me know how to dismantle it.
Thanx.

In order to remove the speakers, you'll need to remove the door handle trim, disconnect the electric connectors, ditto for the grab handle trim in order to access the 2 bolts, remove those, then the door control switch for the windows, under door puddle lights, and unclip the door card surround - using trim removal tools.

That will give you access to the inside where you can remove the speaker bolts. The speaker grille shouldn't need to be touched as it is part of the door card assembly and will come off with that.

Once you take the speaker bolts off, you can remove the speaker after disconnecting the cables at the rear. But if you need to remove the speaker support mounting case, you'll need to drift out the rivets and use a 6mm drill bit to take the rivets out.
