Default Removing rear deck speakers

One of my rear deck "subs" is sounding awful, it actually sounds like something is rattling around in the speaker cone when the bass hits (which I hope is the case because that would be an easy fix!) How do you get at removing the rear deck speakers, I can't figure out how to get at them?

Fold down the back seat, remove the side bolsters, unplug the third brake light from inside the trunk, then pop the forward edge of the deck upward to unclip the snaps that anchor it. Pull it forward and you can slide it out to reach the speakers. It's probably the center cap of the cone banging around. A little super glue will reanchor it.

i had the same problem with the center cap. it was cracked so i used super glue to fix it but its doing it again, i guess superglue isnt the best thing possible to use on the center cap. any ideas of what i should use next time to fix that crack on the center cap?

use rubber cement, it will hold it firm, but will still allow flexibility so that it will be able to vibrate without getting loose again., i'd recommend taking of the cover, cleaning around it and applying rubber cement all the way around.

also, you dont have to remove the side bolsters. i never did anyway. if yours is a 1999.5+ you have 3 seat anchors on the deck as well. plastic covers pop off, bolts revealed

Why not replace? I bought some 30$ pioneers at walmart one night and they are great for the factory radio.
