Hi....
Well, door panel off to replace fronts.....easy enough....
Back shelf......is it 4door? or coupe? Original grilles are attached to the shelf not the speakers, so, rear seat out, remove shelf, replace speakers.......
If replacements have already been fitted, unbolt and replace as normal....

Hope this helps,

Jon.

thanks

had a feeling that was the case, just did not want to start unbolting things before i was sure, been there before and a lot of time and money was wasted.
thanks again.
see you out there.

Rear speakers on the GTS are a pain in the ass to change. It took me and my mate around 2 hours to get the seats off, fit the speakers and rewire them!!!

I didn't even bother with the front ones after that but I guess they should be easier...

The rear shelf on the R33 comes out without too much hassle :)

Remove the backrest, by undoing the two bolts either side at the bottom, which can be reached by pressing down on the squab at the rear corners and you'll see the bolts going through the backrest brackets into the rear firewall, push the seatback upwards to release it from the hooks which hold it inplace.

Now for a little bit of destructive improvisation, it will save you hours though. The rear plastic trims coming down from the sides of the screen pass through the shelf at the back corner, you need to cut the tangs which pass through the shelf with a stanley knife. Cut them on hte underside of the shelf, nobody will notice you've done it ;)

Now use a large flat screw driver, and push it between the shelf and the center bracket to lever the shelf up out of the clips. Have a look at the underside of the shelf from the boot space, you'll see the ends of the clips pushing through.

Now pull the shelf towards you, pushing down at the ends, and up in the middle to clear the respective clips, and take it away.
