    This is very handy. I wish it were available when I replaced mine so I knew what to expect. If you have large hands it can be slightly difficult.

    Thanks for the informative video.
    You really need a soldering iron on those speaker contacts! Don't just wrap wire, that's bad.
    Maybe a hair dryer could heat duct enough to dent it enough to clear the speaker?
    Also some sort of gasket would be helpful to seal the opening, looks like its loose in there which can leak air when you are trying to move air for sound.
    My car has speaker rattles in dash, your video helped me see I can take them out from the top without having to remove the dash etc. Thanks!

    can you use a socket instead of a screwdriver?
