1999 Plymouth Breeze door panel

I am needing to take the door panel off the front passenger side door to see why the speaker quit working. There is one screw up toward the upper hinge but when I take this out it doesn't really do anything. I am sure there are clips or something holding it in place but where do I start prying?
Thanks for any help with this.

You should be able to get to the speaker without removing the door panel.

Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. There should now be visible screws holding the speaker in.

I have access to the tools but I am unsure of where to start, if that makes a difference. Does the panel just come straight off?

Does it look like the speaker has a removable plate over it ???

Ok.... let us know how you make out and if you need further help.

You can check the speaker with a meter or by subbing another one to the same connections.
If the speaker is intermittent.... you could also have a break in the wiring harness at the door hinge. I've encountered many broken wires at the door hinges.

"its off at college with my daughter right now"

Tell her not to play the radio so loud.
When the volume is so loud that the signal starts clipping then speakers begin to burn out.

I will check that. She said she hit a big pot hole and the speaker quit so I am hoping the wire came off at the speaker.
But at the same time it being burnt out is not out of the question.
Thanks for the help.

Just an update, there is a mesh panel over the speaker that pops out of the door panel. The speaker meters good and the wire connections were tight as well. I think she can live without a speaker.
Thanks for your help guys.

You're welcome.

Unfortunately it means the problem is in the door hinge wiring or is the radio itself.
