Thats it daddyo, now push the black trim back into the body of the door and give it a good thump home.

Ensure the rubber door seals are over the trim. If there not just use a knife to prise them back over.

Attach the two screws to the parcel shelf plastic and tighten up half way. Then push the beige trim back into its locating holes.

Tighten up the parcel shelf mounts all the way now and thats it!!

***********************************************

If you have a sub remove the sub using a 5mm torx bit. There are three screws in all located down each hole within the sub. Once there removed unclip the power / speaker cable from the sub and place the sub somewhere safe.

The rest of the install is the same as above.

Re: Changing the rear speakers (Oh My!)

before poping off the back "door card" remove the front "foot plates" (2x pozzi self tappers) and pull upwards (plastic clips holding it in place) and remove the one pozzi self tapper which is hidden under that which holds the rear card in place at the bottom..

You dont have to do that however just hold the door card out of the way. Saves yet another step so to speak

Re: Changing the rear speakers (Oh My!)

Its quite straight forward. Ive stripped mine out 4 times for one thing or another. The only fiddly bit i found is actually getting the backrest out due to the weight of it. When you have it stripped watch were you kneel as the brackets on the floor under the seat bl**dy hurt if you catch them. Make sure you replace any broken clips etc as you may get rattling/buzzing noises as i did first time.
