Removing door panels for speaker upgrade?

How hard is it to remove the door panels and replace the stock speakers myself? Not looking to pay the audio place $150 for install. THanks fellas.

If it is the same as my 2000, just pop off the lens in the bottom rear and the switch panel, remove the two screws in these locations I think there 7mm. Then just lift the door panel straight up.

There are two 7mm bolts. one is behind the lens and the other is behind the window switches. remove both, remove screws and lift straight up.

Also on the front you will need to pull off the little triange plastic piece in the top left corner. It is just held by spring clips so it should just pop off.
