Really cool. But, I wouldn't do that myself. No way.

Honestly, it looks like a lot of work but it isn't really THAT bad. I've had my rear deck out several times over the last couple months and I can have it out in 20 minutes and back together in another 30. If you want new speakers, and don't want some bone-head at Best Buy to thrash your car, go for it. Its a fun project.

Pull the seat forward and look to the left and right of the base on the backside. You will see the pivot point and where the small arms rest in the carriers. As you hold the seat forward at a 45 degree angle, reach down there and push the mouth of one side open. Rotate the arm out of the carrier. While continuing to hold the seat, move over to the other side and repeat.

The trick is that the arms are notched to only come out of the carrier if the seat is rotated 45 degrees to the front.

Good luck!

I finished it last night! Removing that part was the hardest because the rubber piece was sliding and covering the exit point.

Thanks for your write up, it made it easy to install. I had my laptop in my garage and kept going back to reference this post. It took me 2 1/2 hours from start to finish to do. The hardest part for me was taking out the screw on the back side panel.

Awesome write up!!!!

Was anyone else able to do this without completely removing the backseats?

I did mine about a month ago and thought I'd see how far I could get without removing the back seats. I managed to finish the entire job no problem.

If you're very careful you can get the drivers side panel completely off and the passengers side loose enough to life the deck cover off and rotate towards the drivers side and out of the car. You just have to be careful not to scratch the plastic.

I did mine exactly to this post. It saved me a lot of time. And now that I have taken it all apart, I know how and where I am going to mount my rear LED lights and rear footwell lights.

Couple of things:
1. Would you be willing to go back and edit your pics, specifically pointing out the clip locations and what not? You can use mspaint to do this.

2. Also did you mess any clips or break any fasteners when doing this?

I ask these two questions only because this looks like a major pain and this photo right up is excellent. With the addition of the fastener points it would make it perfect.

Cheers

I agree; for noobs like me who'd be stupid enough to attempt something like this it would be nice to see the connector points, tools used, and the technique used to pry off the pieces.

quick question here, i have an amo and sub and aftemarket speakers are my next venture. When I installed a new DDIN head unit, upon raising the volume more than halfway, my speakers would distort. does this just mean i need new front and rears? or should i get a 4 channel amp when i replace them as well? Sorry to post here, but no one has been able to answer me anywhere else....would love some help

I think it means dont raise your volume more than half way.

I believe it would be a good idea to replace the speakers as the OEM ones dont have a huge range (range as in power handling), so when you send more power to them you are over driving them I believe.

Or if you have the aftermarket amp connect to the speakers you could try changing your gains I forget it is it raising or lowering them.

Cheers

that seems odd that at 50% volume your distorting. are they REALLY loud and distorting or just distorting at moderate volume?

Its possible that there is something in the Metra kit thats causing the distortion and you just dont hear it at low volumes. There are a lot of connections between the head and the metra

Its possible that your overdriving the speakers (as Moriartii stated)

Its possible that the powered amp in your head unit is THAT bad... though with most mainstream heads, your going to get a much cleaner signal than an OEM head and it will be stable to a higher volume...

If you DO decide to get new speakers, I would suggest an aftermarket amp to power them instead of the amp within the head unit... while not typically as bad as you are describing, they are notoriously poor performers.

thanks for the info fellas!!!!

It's at a high volume. I have a Pioneer 3200bt and when i hit volume 20 or higher they distort, but the volume goes to 30 or more I believe....was just wondering.

I like how loud they are, just sometimes you always want more haha.

Again, thanks for the advice, I'll look into it somemore

The speakers just can't handle that much power. When you get replacements they'll handle it much better. I think the stock speakers are only rated for 20Watts and that Pioneer unit probably puts out 50Watts. I can turn my Pioneer up to around 25 or so without any distortion on my Kicker speakers.
