Pry up on the screw covers on the door panel using a flat head screwdriver. These covers are located on the door handle and armrest. Remove the screws underneath the screw covers in the door panel that hold it in place.
The speakers in your Jeep Compass may start to malfunction over time. The factory speaker units are of good quality; however, you may prefer the better sound quality of aftermarket silicone speakers. Many aftermarket companies make speaker units for the Compass. Generally speaking, the more expensive the speaker, the higher the quality. Some auto parts stores also carry aftermarket speakers if you are looking for moderate to low quality speakers to replace the factory units if they are blown, and you just want or need a replacement.
Things You'll Need
- Flat head screwdriver
Pull the door panel off the door. There are retaining clips also holding the door in place on the Compass, so you'll need to pull the panel with some force to remove it.
Unplug the factory speaker wire plug from the back of the stereo speakers.
Pull the speaker out of the back of the door panel.
Plug the factory speaker wire plug into the new speakers and install the speakers into the door panel.
Mount the door panel and press the door panel until it snaps into place. Thread and tighten the screws and replace the screw covers.
