How to remove rear seat cushion? I cant seem to find the retainers under the seat! I attempted to remove it multiple times during my sub installation to no avail. I ended up just running the 4ga power through the side of the cushion. I need to tear apart the passenger side trim in order to hide the wire the correct way. I dont feel like taking the pillar trim/seatbelt off.

THIS IS FOR IMPALAS WITHOUT A FOLDING BACK SEAT, BUT REMOVING THE BOTTOM WOULD BE THE SAME...
on the outer edges of the bottom seat cushions stick your hand under and give it a firm tug strait up,pull pretty hard almost like your trying to break it. (I'd say the latches are around 10 inches from the outside edge) get your hand in there as far as possible and pull. the bottom will come out.
then undo the 2 bolts holding the bottom of the back seat in.
after the bolts are out pull strait up on the seat back to release the top hooks.
then all ya gotta do is slide the seat back out from the seat belt.
then you have 4 plastic nuts that hold the package tray cover in place, remove these clips. bow the center of the package tray cover up and it out from underneath the side panels.

now comes the fun of removing the speakers...
push in on the black retaining clip.
grab a screw driver and pry up between the black plastic mounting bracket and the sheet metal tray.(it is glued in very good)

remove the 4 screws holding the speaker to the bracket and swap em out.

reverse steps to re install.

I was never good at writing anything so I done the best I could. HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE!!!

Im talking about the front ones, I got to the point of the grill is off, getting the speaker out and unplugged it. I bought a speaker wiring harness (Metra 72-4568) but i dont know how to get the pin/wire out of the black adapter part of it... and also get the pin/wire out of the connector that connects inside the door. Any help would be awesome because im having a hell of a time trying to get it out so it will look professionally done, i really dont feel like soldering the wire to the speaker...

Talking

i figured it out. 2 hours later and ended using a chisel and hammer to bust off the black end to figure out how to get the pin out and you can just use a paper clip and bend the tip 1/4" from the end to about a 30 degree angle and shove it in with the pins FACING you.

Will give it a try tomorrow. I plan on taking all the trim off to route my 4ga wire better. I am also going to take my front seats out to clean the rail system and paint them.

Very very useful and helpful info! I already have done the head unit & rear deck speakers.... Wish I would have seen this earlier it would have made my struggle far less difficult. But at least I know now not to try the front door speakers without taking the panel off as I am also right handed!

Hey guys I'm doing the front speakers I know it requires 6.5s...My question is what's the max watt I could use?.I'm still using the factory amp. I also read that I have to cut the wire to the tweeters in order to remove the factory speakers..Will I be able to mend them back again without a problem and use them with the new ones? Thanks

I would always suggest waiting until you're able to replace the head unit and upgrade all the wires as well. The wire upgrade will be a significant improvement, almost a necessity if you want it to be more worth your money. The dash isn't anything difficult to get off, I did mine in 0 degrees (and it still didn't break, though it was a struggle!) [watched it on YouTube, made it far easier to do myself]
The factory head unit can push an avg of 15-50watts per speaker, you can go on the internet and find 400watt (bout 150 rms/nominal) for like 50 bucks (I bout Pyles and theirs doin great)
That's just my two cents! Idk about crimping the old tweeter wires personally but I've heard of many people doing so! Good luck!

You don't have to cut the tweeter wiring, however you will be severely disappointed with new speakers and factory amp running them. Iirc the factory amp is like 17watt and runs 2ohm speakers. Unless you search for 2ohm speakers, the 4ohm 6.5s you replace them with will be around 8-9 watts each and not sound too great at all.

There is a harness that allows you to run the wires to the trunk for the factory radio. I know it's a metra harness, but I don't remember the part number.

It works well, but if you want to keep your steering wheel controls, you'll need the steering wheel control retention interface, which is another $50+
