Front Speaker: 5.25" conversion

I returned the 4x6's I origianlly purchased and picked up a pair 5.25" JL Audio speakers for the front. I also ordered an adapter plate for the install.

I have searched the forum and can't find how to make these darn things fit into my 99!!! Do I have to cut to metal plate in there to get the cover back on? Please help!

Thanks!

I bought some speakers for my sound bar, then i realized the speakers in my dash were terrible, so i managed to put in the old sound bar speakers into the dash to make a better sound, i didnt use an adapter plate i just shoved them in there and used 2 screws instead of 4.

I have a 98.
You need to cut that piece to get the new plate and speaker to fit in there properly, but not to get the cover back on.
If I remember correctly,
the cover itself has 2 "push in" studs that snap into the dash when pushed forward, then 2 screws on the side to secure it.

Here is a few pics of my install from another thread.
You'll see where I cut the metal peice out out so the plate and speaker would fit.
And here's the link to the entire thread if you need it:

THE CUT...



MOUNTED, WIRED, AND READY...



THE INSTALL...



ALL DONE!
