To get at the speaker, you need to remove the rear window shelf trim panel -
Remove rear seat lower by lifting from front;
Remove bolts holding rear seat back and remove seat back; Remove the seat belt retractors;
Remove the push in retainers from the cross car beam;
Lift up on the front of the shelf panel to disengage the hook and loop material; then do the same at the rear of the panel, and pull out the shelf.
The speaker is now accessible for removal.

CAN NOT REMOVE RIGHT REAR SUB WOOFER?


The sub-woofer is located behind the rear panel, so you will have to pull the rear panel to be able to get to all the bolts that hold the sub and plastic type box in place. It can be a pain to remove, it has about 4-5 bolts in the box.

I need to remove rear seat to install wiring for sub woofer.


release the spring clips under the seat, one on each side, slide a putty knife under the lip of seat and locate them, then push very hard inward to release them, this is a very hard thing to do if you have never had a rear seat out before..

How do I remove and replace the rear speaker in my 2002 Lexus ES 300?


Hello, I have a 2000 ES300 and while the body style is different believe the newer model still has the rear deck mounted sub-woofer that you are referring to. The process of removing this speaker would start off the same as if you were going to replace the third brake light also located in this housing. Using a flathead screwdriver work your way around prying/popping up all four corners of the speaker grill covering the speaker that have the retainer clips. Once you disengage the clips work/maneuver the grill up and towards you gently and it should slide out. The bulb for the third brae light will be attached to this speaker grill, disconnect the snap wire from the bulb and you should have a clear visual of the speaker and the four bolthead screws securing it. Remove these screws and your almost home free. The next part might be slightly more difficult. If the speaker s simply connected by a clipped on wiring harness, just detach.On my 2000 ES300 i have the pioneer system(Not Nakimichi) and the 2 wires (one black, and one red) are soldered directly to the speaker. You can take a soldering iron(maybe a battery or gas powered one unless you have an inverter) and remelt the solder to remove the wires or you can elect to simply cut the wires. If you choose to cut them make sure you cut them as close as possible to the soldered joints so you have plenty of wire left to install the replacement speaker.Then install replacement either soldering or using crimp clamps and reassemble. ( Note if you simply want to add a aftermarket amplified sub-woofer you don't need to remove the sub-woofer out of the housing. You can tap into the wire leads and run it directly to the amplifier. Just cut one of the wires leading to the stock sub-woofer so it doesn't also come on and potentially blow while the radio is on. This will also prevent any bass humming when the radio is shut off but the aftermarket amplifier is still on because once one of the wires to the stock sub-woofer is disconnected or cut it breaks the circuit. Hope this helps.

Sub woofer?


It is a tedious task, however simple if you have patience. In order to get the sub woofer out, you need to take out the paneling and floor in the back. Start with the plastic knobs near the rear hatch door and then pull the floor back and the panel with the cup holder. I believe i needed to take back the panel on the inside of the rear pillar as well. Everything snaps back in place, so it is not a big deal. Just don't force anything so that you don't crack the plastic. The subwoofer is mounted from the back, so that is the only way to actually get to the hardware holding it in place. Otherwise it will just spin and spin if you try from the front. i replaced mine about 2 years ago with an 8" Kicker, however i think the factory sub had better sound. The amp is designed specifically for that sub. However, it did blow out and the kicker gets the job done. Good Luck!!

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban


You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.
