My '00 STS has a blown speaker in the drivers door, how much of a PITA is the door panel to remove ? Also, does anyone know the speaker size ? It has a Bose stereo if that helps.

The door panel is very easy to remove. There is a black plastic piece behind the chrome handle that pops out, and there is a screw there. The pull handle on the door has a small flap that lifts up...2 screws there. One screw at the rear bottom of the door panel. Remove. Watch the wiring. The original Bose door speaker design was changed due to the problem. The new design has a black cone material in the back instead of the yellow of the original. eBay is one source of speakers, but make sure you get the redesigned one. I think they are about $200 from www.gmpartsdirect.com if you want new. The Bose speakers are 1 ohm, so aftermarket is non-existent.

Wow, $200 for a speaker. It might just have to stay broke, like me.

Yeah...keep an eye on eBay. I bought all four door speakers and the subwoofer for $85. Deals show up...
