In this video, Jmac will show you how to replace your Fox Body Mustang Speaker Grilles. The 5.0Resto 1987-93 Mustang Door Speaker grilles are located at the lower front of each door. Because of where they are located, they typically get kicked when you enter and exit your Mustang.
If your Foxbody Mustang speaker grilles are pulling away from your door panel, it is likely that the retaining tabs have broken off. The proper way to remedy the problem is to replace the speaker grille. The LatemodelRestoration.com Mustang Speaker Grill install kits include everything you need for a seamless install.

J MAC: Hey, everybody. I'm J Mac, and I'm going to show you how to remove the door speaker grill on your '87 and '93 door panel.
Now these are typically broken, just like this one is. A couple of the plastic tabs are broken, and this speaker grill just flops around on the panel. Now to get to it, you do have to remove the door panel. For more information on that, check out our door panel removal video.
Now you want to lay it face down. Grab your pair of diagonal cutters, or something similar. A couple of these tabs are already broken, and you can just clip off the remaining ones.
Then, you can pull the old speaker grill off the panel, and out of the way. Our new speaker grills are 5.0 Resto brand, and they're sold in a pair. They are paint to match. And for more information on painting your interior plastic pieces, check out our interior panel painting video.
Now you can slide your four tabs through the corresponding holes in the door panel. And if your door panel's a little bit warped, you may have to work with it a little bit, to get them through. And especially on these carpeted lower panels, sometimes the carpet gets in the way. All right.
And then, included with that speaker grill pair are eight-- four for each door-- little metal push clips that'll hold that speaker grill to the door panel. And you can just simply slide those over the plastic tabs, and push them down with either a screwdriver or your pliers-- just anything to engage it fully on the back of the panel, and fully engaging that plastic tab.
Work your way around to all four. And some of them might give you a little bit of trouble. There we go. And last one. All right.
And now you have a newly attached, and non-floppy, speaker grill. Now for more interior restoration videos and tech tips, check out latemodelrestoration.com.
