hi guys... i tried doing it myself...took the two screws on the bottom panel off, but i couldn't budge the panel off so i put the screws back in. I talked to a local car stereo dealer to install my speakers, anyways, he mentioned that like the liberty jeep and a few other chrysler cars... the speakers might need a part to fit in, in order to get installed. Not just unplug the wires and connect the new ones. Not as easy as i thought it would be. Hopefully someone can give us a solution soon.... originally would have cost about $40 to install the front alone, but could possibly cost up to $70 because of this new fitting part, and if i do the back as well, it would cost $80 if no part was necessary and $140 with this new part (connection)...not including taxes...

Just did it it on my, the door panel is in 3 pieces. to replace the speaker all you have to do is pop the grill cover off of the speaker there are no screws holding it on. Once you remove the grill there are four screw holding the speaker in.

Hey all,

New Patriot owner for about 8 days now!!!


Thats all you need to do is pull off the grill in front of the speaker, the entire door panel dosent need to come off. I just did it on my Pat. It's much eaiser then I thought. I can take pics if you want.

well, i did it... took off the grill which was fine, but the only other hurdle i had was, what exactly is the size of those speakers? are they 6x9's ? i have a pair of 6.5'' speakers and they definitely don't fit in there unless there is some kind of bracket to hold them, to top it off... the stock speakers have this wire bracket which clicks to release the speakers. Are there any wire brackets available for that?

THey are 6x9's. If you want 6.5" you will need brackets of some kind. Take a look at crutchfield online and "outfit you car" and it will let you know what speakers fit where.

They also have the wiring bracket available.

thanks sportjeeptj99 that really helped, was really wondering what to do. I guess i'll go shop for some 6x9's, i saw the bracket for the 6.5's to fit, but was wondering about the hollow gaps around the unfilled part of the bracket after the 6.5's would be fitted. Think that would affect the sound, where as if i got the 6x9's, it would fit completely without gaps,as per stock fit. Anyways thanks again for your help much appreciated...

well, today i went to best buy and picked up a pair of 6x9 3way jbl speakers and a pair of speaker brackets to fit the 6.5" speakers i had. Thanks to windhamdw and sportjeeptj99, i did it myself, because of them, i saved about a $100 bucks minimal to get them installed professionally. They didn't have the wirebrackets i needed, so i had to manually cut of the stock brackets and rewire it manually, which was pretty simple, and now everything works just perfectly. now i just have to wait for the CANBUS radio replacement interface to be available and the aftermarket deck will be installed. Managed to order a dash kit from Crutchfield, then everything else should fall into place..ie sattellite radio, amp..etc..
