Front speakers in '05 Accord DX/VP

I just got over my fear today about removing the door. Once I saw how easy it was, I was only thinking about changing the speakers. I did the front
tweeters, but now I need to do the woofers.
When I removed the door, I noticed that the speaker was not screwed in as I would expect. Instead, it looked as if it were glued on 'pinned' somehow. How do I remove these? It is as if a simple job might get more complex.

There are 3 clips holding the speaker enclosure in the door panel. One large one at the top center and two small ones at the bottom left and right.
With a flat blade screwdriver or similar instrument, depress the top clip and pull the enclosure out from the top. Don't pull the whole thing out all at once or may damage the bottom clips. Instead, pull the top porton only outward untill the clip is free of the panel. Then lift the entire enclosure straight upward to release the bottom clips.

Thanks. I did see those clips. Now, is there a problem putting new speakers in? Can screw them in or must I drill holes? Do I have to use that plastic apparatus to install the new speakers?

You should be able to tell at this point if the speaker can be removed from the enclosure. It would seem unusual if it couldn't, but it's possible Honda made the whole thing to be replaced as a unit. The instruction I gave above came out of the service manual, and it stops there.

Thanks. I guess I will have to find out.

I tried it today. I could not move that enclosure out of the door. I felt that it was looser though. I only saw two clips by the way. Both on the side. Why does replacing the speaker have to be a pain in the ass?

I have a slight rattle in my drivers door and was wondering how hard it was to remove the door skin to get at the innards. I have a warranty but I know my local dealer will do more damage than good. :(
