how to remove 3rd row Speaker

I have a 97 eb that has a blown speaker in the rear where the 3rd row seat is. i tried popping pannel off with no luck. How do you remove it so that i can unplug it till i get new speaker and what size speaker is it and are there any suggestions on what to replace it with.

If this speaker is in the side wall, this is the sub-woofer speaker. The only way to unplug this is to unplug the amp. This means removing the trim panel to get to it. The enclosure will need to be removed to replace the speaker as there is a bolt on the back of the enclosure holding the speaker in. For replacement I believe there are several companies making a replacement speaker, check e-bay.

I am not aware of any write-ups. Yes it is the trim panel that runs from the end gate to the back door. It is not that bad I have had mine out a few times as I replaced my sub with a whole new after-market enclosure with new amp. The biggest pain is taking the seat belt anchors loose so you can get the panels off, both the top and bottom on the mid row seat(the top one uses a hex nut and the bottom uses a torx) and the third row uses a torx for the top and there is a small hole you push a screw driver or something into to release the bottom anchor. After taking the seat belts loose you pull the trim off from in front and back of the back side window (it just pops off). Unscrew the roundish part that the cargo net attaches too. Pull the threshold strip up below the end gate as well as the panel above the back window, there may be some screws that are hidden by the afore mentioned trim panels if so you need to remove them. About mid point under the back side window you will find a ear of the panel under the carpet that you will need to remove the push pin from. The trim panel them pulls up and away from the side wall.

On the 98 I used to own, I believe the subwoofer is a 8" speaker.

sounds like alot of work. may have to do it on the weekend. i found a write up by mtx and that sounded about like what you said. I figured there was an easier way but i guess not. I have to take 3rd row seat out as well.

Check out this thread from a couple years ago so see if there's any helpful info. I ended up replacing mine with an MTX speaker when the dealer couldn't find an OEM replacement.

If it's the sub try this for instructions to remove panels.
