When you're installing new speakers in your car, consider installing the front door speakers first. Since they're the closest to your ears, they'll have the biggest effect on what you hear. The Mitsubishi Galant is no exception to this rule. By replacing the speakers in the front doors, you'll enjoy better sound reproduction and stereo imaging.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Pry off the plastic screw cover on the front edge of the door panel with a small flat-bladed screwdriver, and remove the Phillips screw located underneath it.

  2. 2

    Loosen and remove the Phillips screw in the plastic trim piece behind the door-release handle.

  3. 3

    Loosen and remove the Phillips screw from the bottom of the door pull cup. Lift the door pull cup out of the door panel.

  4. 4

    Pry around the edges of the door panel with a panel tool to release the retaining clips holding the door panel in place. Lift the door panel up and off the door proper, and unplug any wiring connectors on the back side of the door panel. Any wiring connectors should be easy to see when looking at the back of the panel--simply trace any wires that are connected to the door to their terminus at the back of the door panel. Disconnect the connectors by unplugging them like a lamp cord. Some may have a safety tab to lock the connector in place--pry this up with a small screwdriver and then pull the plug off.

  5. 5

    Remove the four Phillips screws holding the speaker in place. Pull the speaker out of the door and unplug the connector on the back. You'll recognise the connector because it connects the wires to the speaker. It's a rectangular plastic piece with speaker wires connected to it.

  6. 6

    Plug the new speaker in, and place it in the speaker opening. Secure it in place with the screws you removed when taking out the old speaker.

  7. 7

    Test the speaker and reassemble the door by reversing the disassembly steps.
