so for now, i have no door panel and might pull the other side off to fix the same issue on it as well and might even put the speakers in. and ill take some pics.

As, anyone know where too get some of the plastic clips they use on the door besides the dealer and are the right ones. might need too replace a few.

Thanks guys
harbor freight sells the interior panel removal kit for less than $5 i think. it is the same set other stores sell for a bit more. get one of those.

read the write up i poted in june or july 09 and i think midnight posted ea bit earlier on replacign speakers. very good instructions in midnights write up.

i bought a bag of clips at the local napa. almost the identical size. better not to need the clips and remove the panel the right way using the tool.
