are you serious
so, thanks for providing the link to the pdf providing a detailed stereo replacement instructions.
... but is this saying that in order to replace my rear 6x9 speakers i'm going to have to remove the rear seats & backing to remove the rear shelving first?! now i see why pontiac engineers are out of a job. why wouldn't you just provide access to the screws after removing the stereo protecting cover?
i bought the 'premium sound system' in my g6 gtp coupe and 1 of the rear speakers has blown (now 7 years old) when the base was a little over half way and the volume was near max (pathetic).
ps. i learned the hard way before searching 'the net' and tried prying the stereo protecting cover using a flat head and broke all of the connections. unfortunately, i still can't access the speaker screws. i'm considering using a razor to cut the shelving, hoping i'd be able to glue it back in place. ghetto, i know. but the car has ~ 130,000 miles on it now.
fyi, after looking into buying after market rear speakers i decided to go ahead and buy oem because of simplicity and cost ~ $15
ACDelco 25911068 Rear Passenger Side Radio Speaker Assembly <-- can be found on amazon
UPDATE (9/28/2013) the speaker that i mentioned above only has 2 pins and the premium sound system (monsoon) requires 4 pins. i plan to buy a replacement speaker (with 4 pins) from the GM dealership for ~ $85 and having an audio store install it for ~ $75.
