Rear speakers installation for 2002 Saturn SL

    I am going to add rear speakers to my 2002 Saturn SL (it has front
    speakers only). It seems very difficult to remove the rear desk's
    grill to install speakers from the top. Is it possible to install
    aftermarket speakers from the bottom of the rear desk? If so, what
    kind of mounting (or adapters) should be used? Any suggestions?
    I assume the speakers size required to be 6 3/4".

    Thank you.

    The 2002 SL has speaker and mounting screw cut outs in the rear deck
    already. Even the wiring is already done. Just fold down the rear
    seat backs and craw into the trunk and you'll see. It'll take most
    6.5" to 6.75" speakers (I'm using Infinity 63.5i speakers without any
    adaptor. It just bolts on.) About the only thing you'll need,
    besides the speaker itself, is a screw driver, 4 screws per speaker
    and a screw clip per screw.

  3. ....on my 97 you take out the package shelf (fabric covered board under the
    rear window), then mount the speakers from the top. Crutchfield supplied
    the instructions when I bought speakers from them a few years ago...

  4. The factory speakers install from inside the trunk. They use plastic
    anchors which you can get from your Saturn dealer.

    As far as I'm aware, all S-Series rear speakers install from the top of the
    rear package shelf. You probably could install them from the underside, but
    running the screws in from the bottom may make the screws go into/through
    the rear deck cover and stick out.

    For my '92 & '94, removing the rear deck cover involved removing the pillar
    trim, and some pop fasteners from the deck font. It then just pulls right
    out and isn't really a difficult job. In fact, even if you skip the pillar
    trim you can probably bow the center section upward enough to get the
    speakers in place and drive the screws with an angle screwdriver.

    "Oversize 6.5" is the size that will drop right in. Other sizes may require
    adaptors and more messing around.
