    no tweeters in rear doors

    hello there,i have recently bought an astra ls on a 53 plate,i have put a new stereo in it and found the rear tweeters not working.when i took the grills off i found there were no tweeters there.my question is,is the speaker wiring already there,and its just a case of going to a breakers and getting a pair of tweeters or is only higher spec vehcles that have them.

    also im having trouble getting the rear door winder off,i know its a form of circlip holding it on but i cant seem to see it.

    Not overly sure myself. If the existing speakers are 2-way then they'll probably not handle a seperate tweeter anyhow.

    mines a 2002 51 and there should be a tweeter there as far as im aware.. use a flathead screwdriver take the cover off and go to a breakers and just put them straight in. should be a wire there for them.. has like a clip that goes straight into the tweeter

    i use a small piece of cloth to remove the winder, works 10/10 times for me and takes 5secs.
    slide the cloth under the winder and pull up and side to side a bit until you see the top of the clip, then you can get hold of the clip.
    the red line is the cloth. sorry for the crap drawing

    Will be easer to replcae the rears with some with onboard tweeters like /////Alpine E-Type components.
    Before you ask the sizes are in the FAQ's
