I upgraded my door speakers, and the sound was worth it- both in volume and clarity. After the upgrade, I noticed the door panels coming off at the back- at the B and C Pillar. I took them off, nothing blocking and put them back on, same result. Took it to the shop for something else and was told that the plastic clips are single use- they have a 55 gallon drum of them at the service center. They were kind enough to supply me with new ones and I am going to install them myself although they offered at the shop.
So, if you upgrade your speakers or take the door panels off for anything, be aware. Service tech told me that the pressure is so snug on the doors that even the slight degradation from removing them makes the clips unstable.
Big ups to the St. Louis service center by the way. They go out of their way to be helpful- the tech I usually get has been there longer than any of the sales people and really knows the cars, plus he is a car guy and loves what he does. We are lucky to have him!
