i think 5 bolts around the bottom of the door, 2 in the interior handle and take off the mirror backing on the interior. then pull on the bottom. it will come out, then lift cuz there is a lip that hangs over into the window opening

Remove all the screws along the edge on the bottom of the door, remove the screws in the door handles, and pull up on the door panel, and out. It will be hard to pull, but just do it, there are push rivets on the bottom that hold the door on, and clips on the top where it clips to the window sill.

I always find it easier to do with the window down.

There's a few way's to get the window crank off, with the handle facing up you can slightly pull toward's yourself to see the clip. Here's where it become's your choice of removal. You can use a rag,slide it in the direction to make the clip pop off, or use a window crank tool/ clip remover, flat head screw driver, or what ever else you can think of to make it come off.

Honestly, I would suggest getting the tool... It makes things 100 times easier and its only a couple bucks at your local parts store. You just stick it in there and the clip unclips. Having the right tools makes all the difference in any job.

Speaking of the clips... Where can I pick up a pair after my originals grew legs? Or should I just head to a junk yard?

Could have looked up speaker sizes without removing the panel. 4x6" up front, 6x9" back.
