How to Replace the Rear Speakers in a Hyundai Accent

by Alibaster Smith

The speakers in your Hyundai Accent allow you to listen to your favorite music while driving. Unfortunately, they may wear out over time. Many issues can cause the speakers to fail or malfunction---such as excessively loud volume play (the speakers may not be able to handle the amplified sound signal coming from the head unit) or installing aftermarket speakers without changing all of the factory speakers. In almost every case, the speaker needs to be replaced if it is damaged.

Step 1

Disconnect the negative cable from the battery terminal. Do to this, place the socket end of the socket wrench over the retaining nut on the cable clamp. Turn the wrench counterclockwise to loosen.

Step 2

Place the clean rag over the tip of the screwdriver. This will protect the trim as you pry the speaker cover off. Wedge the screwdriver between the speaker cover and the trim in your Accent. Gently pry the cover off.

Step 3

Loosen and remove the screws holding the rear speakers in place using the Phillips head screwdriver.

Step 4

Pull the speaker out of the trim/speaker housing and install the new speaker. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Step 5

Replace the speaker cover and reconnect the negative battery cable.
