The 1996 model year began the sixth generation for the Honda Civic, and this generation lasted through the 2000 model year, introducing a more aggressively designed body for the popular compact Honda. The 1997 Civics were fitted with a stereo system that had two door-mounted front speakers. Many vehicles with door-mounted speakers required you to remove the entire door panel to remove and install a new speaker. Honda streamlined this process by placing a removable speaker grille over the 1997 Civic's speaker, eliminating the need to remove the door panel.

  1. 1

    Insert the blade of a flathead screwdriver in the hole on the bottom of the speaker grille. Pry the base of the grille outward and remove the grille -- exposing the Civic's front speaker.

  2. 2

    Remove the three speaker-to-door panel screws, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the speaker from the door until you can access the wires on the rear of the speaker. Pull the wiring harness from the rear of the speaker.

  3. 3

    Plug the wiring harness into the rear of the speaker and set the speaker in the door panel. Tighten the three speaker-to-door panel screws with a Phillips screwdriver.

  4. 4

    Set the speaker grille back in place on the door panel and press it onto the panel until it clicks into place.

  5. 5

    Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for the speaker in the other door.
