MK III Jetta/Golf Front Speaker Install
6.5 and most 6.75" speakers should fit. 6.5's were used in this install..
Pop off speaker grill (grille). Use a small flat head screwdriver and pry in the area shown.
Here we see a fine example of a Mexican made 95' stock speaker. Its done well... remove the 4 Phillips screws
Here are the color codes...
to mount any new speaker - you'll need to snip off the two VW OEM locating tabs.
Use wire cutters.
VW uses some silly connector. I cut the connector off. The brown (orange) colored wires are ground for the system.
If you wish to keep the dumb OEM connectors, Crutchfield sells them for $10 a set, or if you order speakers from them
they come for free with your order.. I obviously did not order these speakers from them..
Solder/Heat Shrink everything.. work like the pro you are..
Test fit the new speaker. - Try the OEM grill on as well. I didn't want the "Fast and Furious" look.
I had to hammer (lightly) the outer lip of the new speaker to get the grill to fit over it. I ended up doing this all the way around.
Put it in, plug it in, screw it down, pop the grill back on, and that's it.
