Hi, i've been searching google and youtube and haven't found anything helpful on this.
generally i see similar questions that get a response which contains and old thread on a how-to for an 05 but the picture link is broken and the details aren't explained so you need the pictures.

So is there a step by step with a diagram or pictures out there somewhere? all i wanna do is swap the speakers and tweeters out. If not, could someone walk me through this? Or at least tell me where all the screws and clips are? i'm afraid of breaking the flimsy plastic so i don't just wanna jump in and start pulling things.
do i need a door panel tool or will a flat head or something suffice?

You're probably going to break the tabs regardless of a door panel tool so I'd pick up extras just in case. It should only be the one screw in the handle (to the rear of the window buttons not the screw on the door latch release assembly) and then the panel just pops off. As for the speakers, if you didn't buy shallow mount speakers or buy spacers than don't waste your time because your windows wont roll down all the way and you'll have to tear it all back out.

Roll the window down to pop the panels off. Get your fingers down in there and just pull towards you and work your way around. Should be real easy.

You will have to undo the screw in the handle as Drews says. Heed his caution on the spacers. Most good aftermarket speakers have larger magnets.

ok, cool. so that's the only screw then? how many clips should i buy from the dealership then? (my car is there now getting a new water pump and belt and crap) the speakers are mb quartz 6.5 and i've heard they will fit without spacers. i have some spacers on hand i can cut if i have to, but hopefully these pop right in. you stick your fingers in the window slit and pop the panels off?
