Car has 6.5" componets front and rear. They use their own brackets so until someone makes a speaker bracket for them the only solution i found was to cut the basket out and cut the surround out to use the bracket with a new speaker. Also the factory speaker plug plugs into the bracket itself so you can solder wire to the tabs and then to the new speaker so you can use the factory speaker plug

Do not have any pics but it is fairly easy to pull the door pannels.

Front doors:
1. Use pick to remove screw cap cover behind door handle.
2. Unscrew (1) T-20 torx behind screw cap just removed.
3. Use PRT to unclip side trim around window switch panel.
4. Unplug window switch panel and remove.
5. Unscrew (2) T-20 torx from behind the panel just removed.
6. Unscrew (1) T-20 torx located on the side of the door panel.
7. Use PRT to unclip red reflector lens.
8. Unscrew (1) T-20 torx from behind the panel just removed.
9. Use PRT to unclip door panel, unplug and remove.
10. Unscrew (3) T-27 torx securing the speaker, unplug and
remove.

Rear Doors:
1. Use pick to remove screw cap cover behind door handle.
2. Unscrew (1) T-20 torx behind screw cap just removed.
3. Use PRT to unclip window switch panel, unplug and remove.
4. Unscrew (2) T-2 0 tor x behi nd th e panel just removed.
5. Use PRT to unclip the door panel, unplug and remove.
6. Unscrew (3) 7mm bolts securing the speaker, unplug and
remove.

Also, cause i didn't know PRT = panel removal tool and it looks like this
I just starting hearing that rattle as well, do you know what the problem was? I'm taking it to the dealer today to see if they can do something about it before I start digging into it
