Default Speaker wire dangling

My 2000 Camry LE has a rear speaker that makes no sound. I looked in the
trunk and saw that one of the two wires that go down into the speaker is
loose and hanging outside the speaker. I don't see any way to fix it without
disassembling the rear shelf. Does anyone know a way? If not, is this a
repair I can do? If not, any idea how much it will cost?

I've had the car less than 3 years but more than 36k miles, so Toyota and my
dealer say there's no warranty coverage for this.

Usually the speaker wire from the receiver (radio) is connected from the
bottom. Look a little closer. It is most likely that you knocked the speaker
wire from inside your trunk, so you might be able to hook it back up.

But there are also wires internal to the speaker itself that hook the
tweeter to the crossover, etc. This may be difficult to repair, but is less
likely to be damaged.

For about $150-$200, a place like Best Buy or Circuit City will install 2
new rear speakers, and your sound will dramatically improve. Don't bother
with getting a new OEM speaker.
