How to Remove Rear Speakers From a 350Z

Save

Nissan manufactured all models of the 350Z with built-in speakers as part of the factory-installed sound system. You may want to remove the rear speakers, either to replace a bad speaker with a factory replacement or to step up the audio performance of the stereo with aftermarket speakers. Aftermarket speakers are usually designed for better performance and sound quality than the ones installed in the factory.

Things You'll Need

  • Panel tool
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Insert a panel tool under the back edge of the scuff plate on the driver's side door and pry upwards to release the clips on the rear half. Repeat for the passenger side.

  • Pull the door gasket away from the rear side panel behind both doors.

  • Pry out the edges of the rear side panels. Start at the bottom edge and remove both panels when the panels are loose.

  • Open the doors on both of the pockets located in the back wall. Pry around the edges of the pockets and remove them from the panel.

  • Pry up from the bottom of the rear panel. When the panel is loose at the top, slide it backwards to reveal the speakers.

  • Unscrew the four Phillips screws holding each speaker in place. Pull the speakers out of their openings and unplug the connectors on the back of the speakers.
