    2000 Saturn LW2

    So, I have a blown speaker in my car. This guide deals with the front speaker replacement for the L-Series. Awh yeah, let's get started. (I only have pictures of the driver's side door, but it's obviously the same with the passenger side)


    Drivers side door panel

    Starting off, here is the door. You can tell it's in a few pieces. This was the first time for me to just explore and take it apart, as I am accustomed to S-Series door panel removal. This is totally different, and I didn't have good reception to look online for how to do it. Trust me if you want, and I am not responsible for what you do wrong.


    Screw behind black plastic cover

    There are three screws along the bottom of the panel to remove. There is one screw under the black plastic cover by the mirror. Pull on the black plastic cover with some force. There is a pushpin that holds it on, that will release when you pull hard enough. It's located near more near the top of the cover, so pull from the top to reduce the chance of the cover breaking. You will see your screw, remove it.


    Screw behind tweeter cover

    There is a screw behind the tweeter cover. Use a flathead and lightly pop out the cover. You will see your screw, remove it.


    Screw hidden by handle cover

    There is a screw behind the lower part of the handle cover. Remove this by pulling on it. It is held in with a clip. You will see your screw, remove it.


    Screw behind the power lock switch

    Do you like screws? Good because there is another, hidden behind the power lock switch. Like the tweeter cover, be gentle and it will pop out easily. Unplug the power lock switch. You will see your screw, remove it.


    The power mirror switch

    Remove the power mirror switch. No screws, it's just easier. Unplug the power mirror switch.


    Unplugging the tweeter

    Pull on the upper door panel assembly and it will pull off. Be gentle, as the tweeter is still plugged in and doesn't have much slack. Unplug the tweeter.


    Where you're at so far

    Pull the bottom out, unclipping it. Pull the mid section out next, then after the lower and mid sections are pulled out, pull up on the whole assembly. With some force, the panel will come off. Be gentle, as the door light is still attached. Angle the door panel downwards towards you, and unplug the door light.


    Door light assembly

    Take a moment to examine the vapor barrier. If it is hanging like mine was a bit, you should reseal it. Other than that, you're almost done!


    Here is where you're at

    Three 8mm bolts hold on the speaker. Remove these. Then get a flathead screwdriver and gently separate the speaker from the door. It is held on from factory with a light sealant, to reduce vibration. Gently pull out, and unplug and replace!


    Speaker removal time!

    Installation is reverse of removal.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
    - Stock front speakers have spacers.
    - The spacers are built into the speaker.
    - If you wish to reinstall the speakers to factory spec, you will need a light sealant.

      ‚Äč Throughout my planning of my manual swap the one question I never had a definite answer on was swapping the PCM from automatic to the manual one I bought for my 3rd gen. I was first told that you needed the BCM from the car the manual PCM was coming from and then I was told the BCM isn't necessary but it needs to be flashed by the dealer but the dealer won't do it. I was then led to an answer that...

    • Saturn S-series Suspension - Lowering Springs
      by SC2Sick
      There are a couple of options for lowering your 1991-2002 Saturn SL SL1 SL2 SC SC1 SC2 SW SW1 SW2 SWP models

      There are good aftermarket struts available from manufacturers like KYB and Monroe that can be combined with several options for lowering springs. This is also a great time to replace your strut mounts as well as they are likely worn out if they have high miles on them. This project will also generally require an alignment afterwards as well.

    • Deebs Build Saturn LL0 engine
      by SC2Sick
      A "Deebs" build is a popular, all Saturn original parts, way to make a performance engine for the Saturn S-Series platform. These parts are easy to source parts that you could easily obtain from a junkyard or salvage yard ( car-part.com ) that should net modest performance gains without too much difficulty. This can replace a Single Cam ( SOHC ) or be used in place of the later generation Twin Cam ( DOHC ) with minimal additional parts. Generally a computer swap ( see PCM/BCM security relearn...

    • 3rd Gen SC2 SL2 Universal Window Switch Installation Guide
      by slipstreamconversion
      Writeup courtesy of Megan SC2

      (*please trace the leads with a multi-meter. just trying my untested leads could damage your control board.) My 2002 SC2 power window switches have stopped working, AGAIN! I've cleaned the contacts before which helped but was never a great solution. I never had a way to restore the eroded metal on the contacts, and without fixing the contacts cleaning them was pointless. And who wants to take these things apart again? NOT ME! ...
