Default How do you access the rear speaker panel on the '96 camry?

Haynes' description is terrible... it just has a picture, with the rear
seats down, two screws removed (did that), and mention of six clips.

I bent the six clips out of the way, but the rear panel won't really
move much.

Any suggestions?

By the way, I noticed the two rear speakers have "15W" stamped on them.
(!!!) I'm planning on getting some speakers that are at least 40W
RMS...

On another note (no pun intended)... how does Jensen compare with
Kenwood?

Ah, so the Kenwood is the better performer?

Thanks for the link.

So... any suggestions on removing the rear panel?

you need to remove the side seat cushions by accessing the screws under
the back seats
also remove the plastic cover of the stoplight in the rear window.
There are 2 screws on that
holding the light to the cover. No need to remove the 6 clips they
pull out with the cover.

1) remove back seat under cushion (pull up and out)
2) remove backseat rest side panels (where belts are on right and left)
3) remove brake light cover and light
4) remove 2 screws on furry board behind backseat rest (very visible)
5) pull furry board out

Also, you may need to make new mounting holes for the speakers.
Fortunately I had a right-angle drill that was just short enough to not
be impeded by the rear windshield. If you buy new speakers they may
have adapter brackets. Try Crutchfield for excellent service and
decent prices.

Beware that if impedence of new and old speakers don't match you will
be fidgeting with the Faedr quite a bit and ultimately won't be happy
with the sound. Kenwoods are way better than Jensens.

Okey doke, I'll try drilling from inside the trunk instead of fighting
the rear window...

Impedance... you mean, 8 ohm vs. 16 ohm?

Thanks for that. Trying to find reviews, but those are pretty skimpy
(and usually only for the more expensive speakers). I'm not planning
on spending more than $50 for the rear speakers...

Ok, thanks. Just making sure, my car is the 4-door sedan, there
weren't any screws holding the plastic stoplight cover... pulled right
out.

Still looking for the screws holding the backseat rest side panels...

If you pull out the bottom seat cushion then drop down the seat backs,
the side bolsters' three bolts will become visible. There is one on
the bottom and two on top or vice versa.
