Default How to remove rear deck

I'm looking to get insight on how to remove the rear deck, as in where the rear speakers are. Has anyone done it before, and if so how hard is it/helpful tips/ etc?

Thanks in advance!

I have done it....its a pain. You have to remove the back cushion then the tiltl the seats down to get the headrest out of the way. looking at the seat now it will be the only part of the seat that didnt move next to the doors you slid that little piece up and take it off, from their your going to need a socket wrench and start unscrewing just about all the little bolts in order to take the rear deck off you have to pull off the rear pillars as well and once you get to this point your basically done.. except when i did it i did not take the rear deck off because it has the defrost wires and didnt want to chance it but you only need to be able to hold a screw their because the speakers mount on the bottom....sorry thats the best i got...going of memory of like 2 years ago
