Remove the tweeter's casing to allow fitment into stock location.

Reassemble the door following the above instructions in reverse order.
Weld and seal with loom tube the aftermarket tweeter to the stock harness.

In order to seat the aftermarket tweeters in the stock location, we used silicone to fill in the little gap.
