I just replaced mine this past weekend. For the passenger side door, there is a screw right under the door handle and a screw in the middle underneath the door. Remove them both. Next remove the side mirror cover. It just snaps off. Now firmly but gently pull up and out on the door cover. It should …come off. Now disconnect any wiring. For the driver side door there is an extra screw located behind the window and door lock controls. Just push in and lift up and out on the controls and the should pop out. Remove the screw. Disconnect the wiring before you continue. Next remove the same screws that you did for the passenger side door and the side mirror cover. Again firmly but gently pull up and out on the door cover and disconnect any remaining wiring. The rest is self explanitory. You may have to drill new holes for the aftermarket speakers to fit because the piece that held the factory speakers in was useless for mine. I also used some double sided tap with the foam in between the door and the speaker to help secure it and to provide some space between the metal door and the speaker. Hope this helped. I was pleasantly suprise on how relatively easy it was. You Can Re-Use Original Mounting and Wiring Harness: I just replaced the front speakers in my 99 Silverado and I Actually used the existing Speaker Brackets. I separated them from the old Speakers and then reattached them to my new speakers with a couple small 1/2" lg sheet metal screws and also pried off the existing wiring connector and was able to replace the speakers with Factory Wiring Harness and Mounting. 15-20 min's per side taking your time.

However......I've done hinge pins and bushings on a '76 K1500, '83 K2500, '86 C2500, & recently a '94 Suburban. Do you happen to have access to a shop hoist or one of those rolling little cherry picker-like cranes? IF you do, GREAT, my dad and just pioneered an easy way to to do this task. What we did on the Suburban (which will probable be closest to your truck) was roll the window down, wrap a towel around the upper part of the door and gently lift it with the crane. Just enough that it takes the slack out of the saggin door. This is all done with the door open to it's fullest. After you take the side load off the hinges you can pop the keepers off the pins and drive the pins out with a punch. PAY ATTENTION to which direction the pins go as well as the bushings. Our hinge pins and bushings kit came with new keepers but the OEM ones were more robust, so we reused them. Now with the pins out you can roll the door (assuming it's on the crane) away from the rig. (If you've got power windows/power door locks, post again, I'll tell you how to get some slack out of the wires.) Okay, now you can pop the bushings out and take a iwre brush of ssomething to the hinge surfaces and clean them up if you want. Ours had a few years of WD-40 and dirt build-up on them. After that you just pretty much reverse the process. Tap the new bushings in with a hammer, top and bottom, bring the door up close and start the pins. After you've got the pins lined up, don't be afraid to whack those, you'll need to. Install the keepers, almost done. The door spring on our Suburban is a coil spring, if your's is, I'm sorry. That thing is a PITA to get back in place. It takes a cople medium sized prybars and some coaxing. It is an incredibly stiff spring for a door, but those doors are pretty heavy. If you don't have access to the crane I mentioned, a floor jack placed under the door with a 2x4 and towel will acheive the same thing. You will need a second person though to hold the door upright.

They went in with non problem. About $12 at Carquest. We had no luck with the spings, so I ordered a gm door sping compressor: http://www.mytoolstore.com/toolaid/colli04.html With this it only took about 10 min to to both doors. thanks for everything george Hey guys I worked my butt off on one of those springs and just as I was about to give up and leave it off, I came up with the brilliant idea of compressing the spring with a pair of pipe pliers in one hand and tying a couple of small guage wires around it like the spring compressers for a Suspension Coil spring. I then released the pipe plires and Viola' compressed spring. I stuck it back into place in the door held it with plires so when it unsprung it wouldn't get one of my fingers then reached in with the other hand and cut the wires with a small pair of wire cutters. Bam! Sprang back into position. just fished the wires back out of the spring and "Bob's you uncle" Eh? John (MORE)
first you remove the interior door panel, nest i would get a flash light to see the bolts inside the door shell for the handle. there will be only one bolt inside the door shell. you can access the bolt through a hole in the inner door panel. use either a 10mm socket and extension to reach the bolt.… use a magnetic socket, or apply a small amount of buytl tape to keep the bolt in place in the socket so it does not fall into the door. next take the bolt out in the door jamb, next remove the access vent or panel just below the door latch. next remove the door latch bolts, letting the latch hang free. lift the handle free of the door, and look on bottom or top of the lock cylinder area, there should be a tab, push the tab in until the lock cylinder slides out, next lift the handle and rod out of the latch, you may need to put a little pressure on the rod to get it out, but it will come, try twisting it while you pull to help removal, swap the rod on to the new handle, reverse the process and you are done.

Answer . \nYou can usually figure it out by going to Http://www.crutchfield.com and seeing what fits your vehicle.
First, pry up the electric window control panel, and disconnect everything, then tuck the wires back down out of the way. Remove the door panel by removing the two bolts in the handle/ armrest then lok carefully at the trim ring around the door handle, and you should be able to see where you need to… use a flat screwdriver to pop it out of place, and remove it. After that with a flat screwdriver, cats paw, or something else you can gently pry away the entire door panel from the bottom up (it kind of hangs from the "window sill" then lift up when you get to the window. from there it should be pretty self explanatory...

I just replaced mine yesterday. I have a 1997 Chevy Silverado K1500. I bought the part for about $38.00 (autozone.com) for the driver side. You must remove the door panel, the plastic and the metal sheet underneath the plastic as well. There is one screw that you must remove that holds the handle fr…om the inside. The other screw is on the side of the door. After you remove both, just unlatch the hook off the handle and release the lock cylinder from the bottom of the handle. The tricky part is to put it back on. Latch on the hook to the handle again (first) and hold the handle (from the inside) so the hook can be pushed down. Then easily jam the handle back in (don't forget to put the lock back on too). Issue: Only issue I have currently--is that the key is beeping, as if the door is still open. Also the inside light stays on, again as if the door is still open. I did remove a metal tip from the handle. Perhaps that is the problem. I will have to investigate that. If anyone knows, please let me know: email@example.com. Thank you. The beeping sound is most likely from the push button on the inner jamb of your door or a pinched wire from replacing the door handle. Correction/Addition: You don't need to remove the plastic and simply losen the bolts on the metal plater after removing the door panel but makes sure to leave the window cracked about 2 inches so you can lift the metal panel and pull it slighty away from the door. That will leave you about enough space to reach your hand into the corner. I would also recommend losening the latch assembly by taking out the three screws on the side of the door, that way you will have it easier to reattach the two rods after you insterted the new door handle. I would recommend doing this on a day where you are calm as the assembly is a pain. Don't pul to hard/much on the metal panel as your window regular is attached and to much pulling can cause problems with your window. (MORE)

How do you take apart the rear doors to replace blown rear speakers on your 1994 4-door S-10 Chevy Blazer?
You have to look carefully at the door panel. It would be like taking any other panel off a door. You need to look for screws, some my be hidden. If you can't find any screws the panel is probably just held on by clips. Take a screwdriver or something flat and rigid and carefully insert it between t…he door and door panel and pry outward. You might break some of the clips (it's almost impossibly not to), but any auto parts store carries them for cheap. Once you have the door panel off disconnect any wires and there you go. Access to you speakers. Good luck. (MORE)
changing handle on 97 Chevy silverado 1. A tool to loosen the door panel will be a great asset. A drill motor and drill to take out the existing rivit. A putty knife to release the plastic frame around door handle. 2. Take the plastic frame off and away from the door handle. Do this by locating the… plastic catches, push them in and down. 3. Take out the two screws inside the door grip. 4. Slide the tool to lossen the door panel to each of the plastic keepers and pop them out. 5. Do the same for the triangular piece above the door panel towards the front of the door. 6. Wiggle the door panel up and out. The electrical plug ins may keep the door panel too close to the door to work on the handle, use discreting if and when taking the wiring off. 7. Drill out the rivit holding the door handle in place. Slide the door handle forward toward the front of the door. Use needle nose, or whatever you can, to push out and release the two (2) rods connected to the handle. Now take out the door handle. 8. Do the same backwards to replace the door handle, you may want to use whatever you want in place of the rivit. A screw, tapped threads and bolted, etc. will all work. I don't know who did the below, but it was difficult for me to follow! Not discreptive enough for me!!! Need a rivet gun and rivets. Remove inside door panel...(need to remove a few screws. Panel is attached by plastic rivets so pull hard but gentle. Start from bottom and work around and up. Then slide it up to remove. I don't know if your door will have it but you might need to remove a metal plate (hexscrews) Now it gets a little tricky to explain. You'll see a thin metal wire attached to the door handle with a plastic lock nut (needle nose pliers to remove. You might also need a drill to drill out the rivets holding the handle. Reattach the handle to the wire BEFORE replacing the rivets. Then work yourself back to installing the door panel.I just did this a few weeks ago with power locks and windows. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions (MORE)
The Chevrolet Silverado speakers are replaced by first unscrewing two black hexhead screws, the first located in the door corner of the handle used for closing the door. The second screw is located underneath the door lock, mirror adjuster, and window opener/closer buttons located together on a pad …that is taken out by lifting up the outer edge and pulling it up and out. Disconnect the switches and take the screw out. Next, pull out the trim piece that surrounds the door handle and slide it off over the door handle. The entire door paner lifts upward and outwards, but use care to keep the panel close to the door until the courtesy light, door lock, window, and mirror buttons are disconnected from their switches. These connections are the typical automotive electrical switch push lock types that slide out once unlocked by pushing them down. At this point, the entire door panel comes off revealing the 6 1/2 " speaker. The speaker is easily taken out by pressing down and pulling outward on the top of the barcket that holds the speaker in place. The speaker can then be disconnected from its electrical connection. The plastic bracket that holds the speaker in is glued to the speaker, and unless a factory speaker is used to replace the unit, one may have to pull the bracket off of the old speaker, and glue it to the new speaker. Factory OEM speakers will come with the bracket already attached, and with a foam protector on front of the speaker. The part number is 15038566. Reassemble by connecting the speaker switch and replacing the speaker and bracket. Hold the door panel up to the door, connect the courtesy light and replace the door panel by sliding its lower plastic slide guides into their slots, then hold the panel close to the door and slide the panel down until it snaps into place. Replace the two black hexhead screws. Make sure the door lock, window and mirror electrical connectors are easily within reach and connect them to the pad of buttons. Slide the pad in and down until it snaps into place. Replace the trim around the door handle. (MORE)
If it's the same as a 93 model then you will run into weak plastic clips on the back side of the plastic that the dash cover has in place. the front speakers aren't too hard. just pry off the speaker grill covers with a screw driver and while carefully prying the covers up and towards you just be wa…ry that the clips will more than likely break off the speaker covers. this is repairable with some good strong glue. the speakers are held in place with screws. on the rear speakers i would advise against trying to replace them in the same manner. the plastic that is in place is quite extensive. not only will you run in to the weak clips but the rear panel as well as both side panels must be removed too. even the pros will advise against removing the rear speakers. not only is it labor intense, but the plastic is weak and the replacement 4x6 in. speakers used just don't have great sound either. i put 6x9 in. speakers in boxes on the floor behind the fr. seat. i am more satisfied with that approach considering the options.

On Most GM vehichles, you can easily pry the door panel off with a flathead screwdriver. Remember, though, that the clips that you are prying off are very cheap, and usually break off. So, go to the GM dealership, and get a box of door panel clips before you pry off the panel. (a box of 25 costs abo…ut $10.00) Update... This procedure as mention above IE; "pry it off"on the 2005 GM Full Size Truck like was questioned about will DESTROY the door panel and cost you almost $450.00 to replace. The design on this truck to remove the door panel and ALL Silverados from 1999 up LIFT OFF in a UPWARD motion AFTER several screws and a plug type of fastener is removed Then and ONLY then may you LIFT OFF in a upward motion to remove the panel, do NOT do what the person said to do at the top of this Answer they do NOT know what they area talking about !!! Another update: I wouldn't say that the first person doesn't know what they are talking about. Most GM vehicles do have clips in which the doors can be pryed off. However, the second person is correct in this particular case. DO NOT PULL the panel off or try to pry the panel off. The panel must be lifted. On a 2006 Siverado, there are 3 7mm bolts. These bolts are under the lock, behind the door panel handle (not the door opening handle), and on the bottom of the door panel. Once these are off, remove the mirror cover and the cover behind the door opening handle. These cover can both be pryed off. Next, LIFT and PULL the door panel off. Finally, disconnect all wires and you're' good to go. (MORE)
You remove four screws with a small L key and then carefully remove the top plastic from the speaker ......then remove the speaker from the lower plastic.....Its a bit tuff but it can be done and then replace speaker.....you also need to remove the receiving part from old speaker and use it to conne…ct you new one. or you can cut off the plug and connect speaker direct and tape it (MORE)
Is it normal for a 2004 Chevy Silverado to have a noise in 4WD that is still there after replacing the bearings?
Answer . If it is like a whirring whine that is probably a normal 4X4 noise. Any other noise I'd be looking into as a problem.
You obviously have to remove the door panels, then there might be some plastic around the edges of the speaker. There should be four screws that hold the speaker in place, they might be somewhat hidden from the plastic. After you remove those four screws you just pull the speaker out toward you. Thi…s may take a little effort, they use a sticky rubber ring to seal the edges but if the screws are out it should come without a whole lot of prying. If you don't know how to take the door panel off...Look on the bottom edge there should be a screw, maybe on both sides but they are fairly visible. The check by the handle and remove the plate that goes around it, there is another screw in there. After you remove those screws, lift up on the panel. If it doesn't pop off you might have missed a screw. Sorry if my information might be a little off. I had a '96 then a '04 but yours should be similar to my 2004. Good Luck (MORE)
What are the right size for the replacement speakers on a 2000 Chevy Silverado Lt 1500 with the extended cab?
The front speakers are 6.5" (round) and the back (in the extended cab doors) are the 4"x6" size.
You go to GMpartsdirect.com and search under 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 for Flasher and it pulls up a part for $48. You buy it. Once it comes you take off the module plugged into the back of your fuse block (in the driver's side dash) and and put the new one in. This repair is detailed in Silverado T…SB #01946 and is a common problem. (MORE)
You need to remove the entire door pannel. There are manuals that show you how to do it.
\nI have a master sheet from Crutchfield with exact instructions on how to do this in PDF format... If you can provide your email address, I will send it to you.
Assuming you do not have the Bose system, it's actually pretty easy. 1. Pop the plastic locking mechanism off the door panel. 2. There is a 7-mm screw underneath where the the locking mechanism used to be. remove this. 3. There is another 7-mm screw just below the door handle, the one you pul…l when closing the door (look for the hole). Remove this. 4. There is another 7-mm screw under the bottom edge of the door panel. Remove this. 5. Pop the plastic cover around the opening handle, the one you pull up on to open the door. A thin flathead screwdriver will do the trick here. 6. Pop the triangular plastic cover off that is at the front-lower corner of the window. Start at the top because the bottom of it is a tab that slides behind the metal. If you start at the bottom you might break this tab. 7. Now just lift up on the door panel and it should slide off. 8. The next trick is unplugging all the wires. Some are simple, others a little more stubborn. Just keep in mind that they all have some snap-clip mechanism that must be pushed to release the wire connector. The trickiest one is the big connector to the power windows and locks. There is a gray lever-looking clip on it that must rotate out to release the whole connector. The spring/snap clip is located at the outermost end of this gray lever. The little door light at the lower outside corner of the door simply pulls out of the lamp housing with the bulb still attached. It is snap fit but it does not lock like the other wire connectors. The door speakers in an 03 Silverado are component, meaning there is a mid/bass driver and a tweeter. The factory tweeter has a capacitor soldered to its leads which I think is acting like a simple high-pass filter. I wouldn't connect an aftermarket tweeter directly to it wires as they may not be filtered and could easily blow a new tweeter with low frequency signals. Definitely use a crossover with the tweeter. I bought an aftermarket mid/bass-tweeter combo that included the crossovers and it works fine. I just wired them to the wires for the factory mi/bass driver and left the factory tweeter disconnected. However, I'm thinking about reconnecting the factory tweeters just to see if I like the sound better. (MORE)
you have to take the entire door skin off,arm rest,switches,etc.remember how you took everything apart so as put everything back again the handle has basically to bolts holding it in place one outer side of door edge,above the Vin number,sticker on the door,the other you will see when you take apart… the door it will be exposed,you'll have to physically look inside the door at the handle itself,take it out and the handle practically off,using medium sized flat head screw driver,pry the pin that connects the from the door(i forget what this things is called,the part that latches or actually grabs onto the door striker)to the handle base,theres another one you may or may not be able to see at first but as you start to remove the handle from the door it will become looser and you should see it from under the handel outer door,pry it loose and your home free.realize this isn't going to be easy it at all and if you can have someone assist you that knows what there doing,use them,you'll be happier for it.

Open your door. Look at the edge of the door. There is a bolt just about even with the handle. Take that out and then remove the inside door panel. There should be a whole at on the inside even with the door handle, take that out and the handle should be lose. You will then have to take apart the cl…ips that work the lock and door latch. Its not simple, but if you are half way mechanically incline you should be able to do it. (MORE)
remove the screw under the door handle on the inside, and the screw under the panel(front only) and gently lift straight up and there you go! the only thing really holding the panel on is little arms that slide down into a hole all over the backside of the panel. so putting the panel back on isn't a… job either.

How do you replace the speakers on the doors of a 2002 Chevy 1500 Silverado pickup as well as the speakers in the panels on both sides of the rear window?
For the front speakers your gonna have to take the door panels off to get to all the wiring and everything and for the back ones you should just be able to take the plastic cover off and replace them
Answer . take door panel off should be screwed to door remove screws take speaker out unhook wires
For side doors, Very carefully with a flat blade screw driver and pry around edge of covers over spkrs. near corners between grills or center and side of door cover . Once off, should be able to see screws or possibly rivets holding spkr. in place. If you do have rivets, drill them out and after ins…talling new spkrs., find appropriate size screws to fit in holes.. For rear doors, insert flatblade screw driver under grill and gently pry off. Once off, you'll need grill to drill rivets out to remove spkrs and find appropriate size screws to mount spkrs. in again. Good luck. Word of an owners of this type of van who had to get all 4 spkrs. rebuilt due to dry rot and had to figure out how with no info but it isn't hard if your good with taking things apart and reassembling. Worse case scenario you break a grill and they can be replaced. (MORE)
\nI believe In the silverado door panel the steel mesh that surrounds the speakers should easily pop out with a flat head screw driver, then if you unscrew the four screws around the speaker you can drop them out threw the hole to work or replace them.
Inspect the door panel for any places to hide a screw, you also have to remove the window and lock control pad by prying upwards from the back, careful not to scratch or indent the material., once you have removed them all slightly pull and move the panel upwards( the wrong amount of pressure or mis…sing screws to remove may crack your expensive door panel) remove the door handle rod, and lock rod by removing the clip from the handle, clip removal tools are necessary.. once you have done that there will be about 4 screws around the speaker, remove them and the plug connecting the wires, after installing the new speaker, double check that you have re-hooked all of the handle rods and wire connectors.

The front door speakers are very easy to replace... The Grill covering the speakers just pops out: Open the door. pull out on the grill from the hinge side of door toward the latch side of the door. Then remove three torque screws. and disconnect the wiring harness.. The front door speakers are 2-o…hm, bass-channel. Most off-the-shelf speakers are either 4-ohm or 8-ohm multi-way speakers. (MORE)
there should be a screw where the door handle is and maybe on the corners of the door panel. undo any screws and take off any handles then pop off the panel with a flathead screwdriver.
Pop off the grill undo the 4 bolts 7mm socket. Lift out speaker and undo wires. Your best bet is going to junk yard due to the odd size of speaker.
open up the door panel and just remove the speakers but be careful the speakers are glued to some brackets and you need these to keep the speakers on so dont break them
Yes you can put 6 speakers in a silverado, by instaling a 4 chanels amp for the front, and mono amp 1 chanel for the sub
if you are talking about the extended cab, you have to take the 2 panels out and be careful doing so or you can break them.
If you don't know how, you shouldn't be doing it. I'm sure your local dealer, or redneck at the trailer park would be happy to change them for you.
Generally, a stock silverado will have four speakers; two in the dashboard and two behind the seat.
All you need are 6.5s. You can get components or normal. I replaced ALL 4 of my 6.5s with ALPINE type Rs- and if you crank them a little to high you may blow an eardrum. Lol. I have them wired directly to my Jensen VM9512 indash tv with built in equalizer, all i can say is awesome. If you wire them …to an amp you will have the best sound out there. I have tried all 4 to a Rockford Fosgate old skool punch 200x4 amp and they are massive! you can here the VERY faint music 3 city blocks away! I couldn't believe it until i heard it for myself- but that is rediculous UNLESS you want SERIOUS competition and blown ears. I have tried them on a boss 200x4 with built in cross over and there is ALOT BETTER sound quality but not as loud as the punch. (MORE)
All the speakers in a 1991 Chevy Silverado should be 4x6 if they are stock.
hello,. pretty sure the sizes are 6.5" for the doors and 4x6" for the rear but to confirm you can go to crutchfield.com and click "out fit my car" and it will give you sizes and options on new speakers.
take off door panel. get a drill and drill out the rivet that is on the door handle bracket. and unscrew the others. and pop out linkage and then install new one
Go to crutchfield.com you can look up any audio or video for any make and model.
It is fairly simple after you undo a few hidden screws. We have complete instructions at out enthusiasts forum at www.trailvoy.com

Working on the SRS can be very hazardous. For this reason I suggest you have this repaired by a professional.
You'll need to use a trim puller to remove the interior panel. Youcan get one at any auto parts store for around $10 - $15. Anyscrews or bolts in the door panel will need to be removed first.Once you've got the door trim off, the speaker will be exposed..just disconnect the wires, remove the fastene…rs, and it comes rightout. Make sure, before you do any of this, that you disconnect thenegative terminal of your battery. (MORE)
