  1. @Rich Wait, really? I'll have to investigate it. Any idea of the size, and will i have to run my own speaker wires?
  2. @Rich I actually do have somewhere in the garage a fiberglass parcel shelf i bought off eBay last year with the intention of fitting some 6x9's but still not done it yet, im great at buying stuff to do jobs, or thinking ill get this that and the other done and leaving it ages! @mk2 I'll try get some pictures at some point should i ever go to change something or if i hear a rattle, its very straight forward only pain is the rivets. You wouldn't even tell i had changed the speakers if you was to look at it, all looks OEM
  3. Speakers all replaced, and a great improvement from the old blown speakers (left 1 had a split in) - Remove 4 philip headscrews on door card and remove door card. Door card will come down in a downwards motion. - Unclip speaker wire adapter from speaker. (Squeeze tabs either side and pull) - Use a drill and drill bit to drill out the 4 rivets holding the speaker in place. - Screw new Speaker Adapter plate in (I used a set of U Clips and Small screws) Adapter plate is needed or when window goes down it will hit the speaker magnet - Connect wires to new speakers and refit the new speakers into the adapater bracket. Double check all is secure and tight, so it dont rattle when you have the sound on - refit door card by lining up the 4 top slotted groves and then once card is flush reput 4 philips screws into the bottom of the door cards.
  4. I am not replacing the tweeters near the windowscreen only the door speakers, door speaker size is 6.5 inch. You'll need to either buy the surrounds, or make your own so the window can go down or it hits the speaker magnet.
  5. Thank you @LR5V I'll get some ordered.
  6. I get most of my parts from either AutoDoc or EuroCarParts. The delivery times on AutoDoc are slightly longer as it all comes from Germany but they have a live chat so you can make sure the part you're getting will fit. EuroCarParts has been hit and miss also, great for servicing parts but not so good when i ordered a new standard backbox for my Arosa and they swore blind the one they sent me would 100% fit the car, in the end i had the car up on ramps and took pictures to show them it was nowhere near close to fitting. Last resort is eBay but don't go by the will this fix my car checker they have because its not always right.
  7. Thanks for the tips so far guys, as theyre pop riveted in does anybody know the size of either pop rivet to replace the fixings, or what size nut and bolt inc length i would need, so i can have them all ready to go when it all gets here.
  8. Just a couple of questions on front door card speaker replacements. 1) Do you 'NEED' the door speaker adapter plates? If so can you say what size? 2) Am i right in thinking the Speaker size for replacement is 6.5in Anything else i should invest in to make job more easy? Thank You
  9. Ok, i can add to this also. Before i moved to a DAB unit i tried a shorter bee sting aerial and it didn't pick up the normal FM channels as good as the standard one. The aerial unscrews from the base till it wont unscrew no more and then holding the black base with one hand just the aerial a tug and it should release from the base. The normal standard aerial will NOT work with a 'splitter' for DAB, you'll need a powered aerial or one of the DAB windscreen mounted jobs.
  10. I wrote a post up about this a couple months ago, and didn't really get to the bottom of the same issue as what you sound like you're having. We have looked at the pedal box as much as possible with visually looking, HDR Camera photos taken and checked and we had a bore scope around the back where the naked eye and camera cant see and we don't see any cracks, hairlines or anyhting of that nature. My creak is sometimes there and sometimes not. It comes and goes and ive jsut come to the line of thought that ill continue to drive it until something gives, but all the pedals are the same height, the clutch pedal returns like normal, and opperates like normal. Ill cross the bridge of repairing / replacing the pedal box should it ever come to that or break it down for parts.
  11. Update. So today i managed to get it all fitted and results are great, for a 'windscreen aerial' I didn't really want the aerial stuck to my window as i think they're ugly things so tried a mixture of different places to try hide the aerial from view. Some had 'ok' results and some not so much so, i tried hiding the aerial behind the panel in the passenger footwell, using the metal as a ground but the copper flex aerial caused static when touching the body work also so that was a no go, and then i looked at running it up the and along the window screen to where the rear view mirror is but found it made the roof lining stick out abit which i wasnt a fan of. So i then ran the cable just up to where the passenger side tweeter is and used the metal there to anchor the ground and the little box, the aerial also poked down behind the bash itself leaving a much more stealth fitment. While not perfect it was something i was happy with, and the results are bang on crystal clear on all stations and works well.
  12. @LR5V Thanks for the link mate, for simplicity as gash as they look i think im just going to go with the window mounted one. which way would be best suited in your opinion of running the cable up the window side? (my old portable unit had a window sticker but i actually just used to lay it in the troff bit and still worked fine) but this time i wanna do it properly
  13. @LR5V Thanks for the advice on the mount, it worked great. Yeah i have to say im really not a massive fan of the window mounts, ill take a look at both options and let you know how and what i went with mate. Thanks again for the advice!
  14. So after having a DAB unit in for a while and enjoying it i bought a refurbished Sony DAB+ Headunit to replace the unit i am currently using. My question is can i buy a 'splitter' where it has the normal FM aerial and DAB connector in one so i can just use the normal car antenna so i dont have to have a window mounted aerial, or is the signal not strong enough? (Sorry to bump an older thread, just thought it was better than starting a new one)
  15. Yep, when i was reading the folder full of paperwork i got with my car when i bought it. It had a invoice for new indicator stalk and fitting. So im guessing when they go its a known issue.
