96 BMW 3 Series/M3 (E36) Front Midrange / Tweeter Installation Instructions

July 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Tools Required for BMW Front Midrange / Tweeter Installation: (All the below are readily available at your local auto parts store) • Panel Removal Tool • Torx T20 screwdriver • 8mm socket wrench • Small, Straight Pick Tool • Hot Glue Gun w/Glue Sticks We’ve broken down our instructions into each task so that you can take the process one step at a time and keep the project manageable!
Some important notes for you to keep in mind: • If you have any questions about the procedures outlined below, please stop what you’re doing and give us a call. If we’re not available, and you’re not sure if what you’re doing is correct, put the car back together and hold off on the installation until we get everything clarified for you. Believe us, it’s worth it. ☺ • Variations do occur from car to car and year to year, but they aren’t going to drastically affect any of the below instructions. • When removing parts from your vehicle, to make reinstallation easier and simpler, we highly recommend the use of zip-lock bags with labels to organize the smaller the parts you’re removing. • **IMPORTANT: Before you make any connections, we recommend disconnecting the negative battery terminal from the battery. This will eliminate any chance electrical damage to the vehicle. Please note, however, that if you have your original BMW head unit and your vehicle was made in 2000 or earlier, you may need to have your “radio code” handy, typically found on a small card with your owner’s manual. If you don’t have this code, you can get it by calling your BMW dealership and providing your vehicle’s VIN. Vehicles newer than 2000 do not need this code.
Door Panel Removal: 1. Orient yourself with the door panel before beginning the installation process. 2. Determine whether or not your door is equipped with airbags by looking for a small plastic insert labeled “airbag” near the rear of the door panel. If so, begin here. If not, skip to step 4. (Figure 1) 3. Pop the airbag plug out using your panel tool. This will reveal a Torx T20 bolt. Remove this. (Figure 1)
