How do I replace the rear speakers in a 2002 Honda Civic?

My 2002 Honda Civic has been my commuter car for years and it still runs great. However, I must’ve been rocking out a bit too much because the rear speakers recently blew out and I bought a new pair. So how do I replace the speakers in a 2002 Honda Civic?

If you hear that scratchy, rough sound of blown speakers, don’t stress. To replace the rear speakers in your Honda Civic, simply remove the speakers by accessing the trunk.
Start by gathering a screwdriver. Put painter’s tape over the end, which will protect the plastic interior trim from damage when you pry it off. You also need a socket wrench to remove a few bolts in the rear.
Now that you have a screwdriver, follow these steps to replace the rear speakers in a 2002 Honda Civic:
  • Pop the trunk.
  • Look at the top of the interior of the trunk. You should see the cone of each speaker on the left- and right-hand sides of the top of the trunk. Measuring these speakers will ensure that you purchase the right replacements.
  • Use the manual lever in the trunk to lower both rear seats.
  • Go into the interior of the vehicle.
  • Pop off the plastic rim around the lock of the trunks.
  • Remove the right and left sides of padding by each door by removing the bolt.
  • Remove the remaining trim and speaker covers.
  • Take the speakers out by removing the screws and disconnecting the wiring harnesses.
  • Pop your speakers into place.
  • Repeat these steps in reverse and you’re back in business.
You may want to consider sound system coverage to protect your new speakers. You can also review other types of car insurance with the Jerry app to make sure you’re not overpaying for the coverage you want.
