    85 eldorado - i cant get rear speakers out and tried search

    good afternoon ladies and gentlemen.


    my 85 Eldorado convertible was sold but I did pick up a 85 coupe with 44k original miles on her. the engine however have 11k well documented and expensive receipted miles


    already did my front speakers. I need help with the rear ones. the back seat is already out.

    my question is, do the wood covered by interior material where both speakers are bolted onto come out re bolt and rewire and put back? I have removed the back lower panel already and looks like I have to remove the higher rear panel where the wooden speaker strip is held to. How do I correctly remove the lower and upper rear panels to get to the speakers?


    thank you guys so much for taking the time to read a true fan and collectors issue. I tried looking through all of google, forums, and everything I could do my self, it is time for me to get active in a amazing forum such as this.

    again, thank you I really appreciate it.

    Re: 85 eldorado 44k newer engine:) i cant get rear speakers out and tried search:(

    An Eldo coupe has speakers in the carpeted shelf behind the seat from the factory. You feel for one Phillips head screw in the center of that panel, remove it, then gently lift the panel in the center to pull out from the sail panel trim. The speakers drop in from the top and clip in. I find it easier to have the rear seat out and one sail panel unattached. I think they're 4 x 6??

    Re: 85 eldorado 44k newer engine:) i cant get rear speakers out and tried search:(

    i found the screw on the carpeted rear deck area no problem.

    my back seats is completely out.

    my question is do I remove the rear side panels? bottom and top, so that the carpeted speakers piece slide out?

    or can I pull that/slide that out with force and without removing the rear side panels.

    I have the bottom panel off by screws, is the upper rear side panels by the back window just clip on? do I just pull it out by the window? does it snap back after?

    Appreciate it a ton! I cant thank you enough

    Once the screw is out gently lift the carpeted panel in its center up to allow it to slide out from under the 2 sail (side panels?) panels with the dome lights on them. Then pull the shelf panel towards you. Be careful its card board!
