    Hey everyone! A while ago my passenger side speaker quit working.

    Is it hard to replace?

    Should I have it professionally repaired?

    What speakers would you recommend?

    The speaker is easy to access. The door panel needs removed and this Is done by removing a screw in door hole on armrest. Screw in door handle. Door handle can be tricky to remove and install but it slides on and off at an angle. You will need a window crank removal tool that you can get at autozone. After that you should be able to remove the door panel and see speaker. Be careful though because the door panel has retaining clips that can b damaged as they are hard to find except in junkyards. Speaker is held by three 8mm hex screws but a torx but will work too not sure of size.

    I have always heard good things about pioneer but you will need a new head unit to get the best sound

    I had direct fit 6x8 Pioneers in the rear and 6 1/2 Pioneers in the doors in my tracer and it sounded great.

    Just beware that all speakers may not fit Some are too deep and the window will hit it if you roll it down all the way.
