Need help replacing back speaker of my 2007 legacy 3.0r

Recommended Posts

I recently brought a Subaru legacy 3.0r, I found out that the back speaker is blown and needs to be replaced. I need help to remove the back cover to get to the screws to unscrew the speaker that is already on there and replace it with a new one. I am very new to Subaru's and I have been searching on the internet for ages and been trying to find ways myself. apparently, I might have to fold my seats down but I also don't know where those screws are either!. Any help would be appreciated

One of us should be able to point you in the right direction.

Is this the ’sub’ in the rear parcel tray on a sedan or the speaker near the bottom in the rear door you are talking about?

ok, thank you very much 
It is a complete and utter pain in the ass to do. You need to remove the whole rear parcel tray out. So you also need to remove the car seat anchor points, seatbelt covers etc. It's not hard it's just a pain to do and once you get to the speaker it's even worse to try and Jimmy it out.

@sobanoodle should know. I've done doors and wagon sub but not sedan one. Can't imagine there is much to it though.

 

Haha negative sorry as mine was a basic Kenwood. A friend of mine swapped their for a Polk DB840 (8" and 4Ohm McIntosh specs). No Idea how to remove the rear deck but I am sure there's a how-to video/write-up somewhere. I have a suspicion that it is just held by some plastic clips.

yeah, I guess ill have to find my ways of getting the stuff out. looked all over the back seats for any types of screws or nuts and there is none. guess I'll have to pull something apart to get to the nuts

Found the official Subaru way from one of the service manuals. It's a bit vague but should push you in the right direction. I've attached the other relevant pages needed to complete some of the steps. 

Good luck...
