Re: Drivers door speaker stopped working, where do I start?

I got the door back on and together but it is ripped at the top and I will order a new door panel and try to put it on myself. All the wire plugs seemed complicated. I did not try to take them off I just let the panel hang there, I mean it rested on my tool box and kept falling off and hitting me in the head. Also, I did not have a trim tool but used a cooking spatula instead. That seemed to work. Also, the cuticle cutters worked ok as a wire stripper. Finally, I used my hair dryer to heat up the glue/putty that adhered to the plastic on the door to make it stick. My dog was assisting, unfortunately the truck is disgustingly muddy on the bottom of it and he was underneath the truck doing something so he is a mess and will be going to bed wet! The end.
Thanks for your help,
Polk? Sounds like whoever had the truck before you replaced the stock speakers with an aftermarket component set. The "audio box" you refer to sounds like a crossover. You already have upgraded speakers in there. I'm sorry to hear about the ripped door panel. Typically, if the panel doesn't pry off easily, you've missed a screw. I would recommend getting a replacement from a junkyard. It will be a heck of a lot cheaper than buying new. Live any learn! Hope it all turns out for the best!
