Use a clip removing tool to remove the cosmetic plate of the door handle. Start from the bottom and work your way up.
This is where the clips are located.

Disconnect the harness.
Using a Philips screwdriver, remove these two hidden screws.
Remove the side mirror inner panel. The clips behind these are difficult to remove, but your best tool is a clip remover. In our case most clips were already broken from a previous installation, so we used silicone to hold it in place once re-installed.
These three clips are supposed to act as some sort of hinge to fold the door panel down. Unclip the door panel from them, it should be fairly easy.
This is a close-up of the clip. If you figure out the exact functionality of these, let me know.
Disconnect the speaker connector.
Cut the speaker connector and weld on a pair of quick disconnect terminals that are compatible with your aftermarket speakers.
Remove the stock speaker.

In order to bolt and aftermarket speaker, you will need to remove this tab. Aftermarket speakers screw in perfectly to the stock mounting points.

Follow the above instructions in reverse order to reassemble the door!
