Generally, thats the case. I looked it up in the shop manual at one point, but I dont mind the black handles.

Lots of handles available on the car-part.com

Did you have a tan ring around yours, and did you buy a speaker adapter to fit the aftermarket speaker in the enclosure.

I just changed mine today It unlocks now but it will not lock remotely. It did not unlock before and that's the reason for changing it. Any ideas?

finding the factory "crossover" or filter

Thank you so much for the instructions. I would have definitely broken something trying to attempt this by myself. In fact, I did break something.....

My question to you is where did you find the factory crossover or filter so that I can take it out of the circuit? It's definitely not in the door, so I'm thinking it is inside the dash somewhere and possibly underneath the tweeter (7th gen? 2005 Accord LX). How did you get to it when you installed the aftermarket speakers?

Thanks!

I did buy a plastic speaker adapter. I haven't tried the fit yet, but I am also thinking of getting mdf rings cut from a local wood shop. What did you end up doing for your car?

I like to troll

I found the answer I was looking for. There is no crossover if you don't have the premium audio. It is just a direct tap.

Here is the relevant thread: Help with front speaker install with component and crossover- 7th gen accord coupe

I have found that the newer plastic type trim pullers are better for me... Much less of a chance on maring a finish like metal to plastic can... just my opinion..

Someone asked what the sticky substance was that seals the plastic sheet to the door. I used to work in a body shop and we referred to it as butyl. I wouldn't recommend using the hair dryer method and warming it up. Sure, it'll make it easier to remove the panel, but if you get that stuff on you it's a bear to remove. I got it on me a couple times and nothing short of thinner got it off very quickly. You can pretty much relegate any clothes you get it on to lawn mowing or "working on the car" duty. I always just took a razor blade and sliced through the butyl while tugging out on the plastic panel. Very easy and if you watch what you're doing the panel will be fine.

You should still have one thing left to do: Unhook the door handle cable. (its the piece here with green) Pull out the green piece, then release the cable by rotating it out of the clip (I should have got a picture of that, but I had no free hand)
I am new to the forum and have just recently bought a pre-owned accord 7th gen and am loving it so far. I am not as handy as i figure most of the users of this forum however find this write up was extremely helpful

One item that is particularly annoying on my new ride, is the some slight rattling noise coming from driver and passenger side internal door trim while driving on bumps. When i push it with my hand - the noise subsides.

Where on this assembly would be areas where i can apply some sound deadening material, What could be causing this noise ? would it just be a matter of the trim being loose ? What am i dealing with. The car otherwise is fine but this noise is completely ruining the pleasure when driving in city on silent roads.
