This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 Ford Edge CUV in removing a front or rear door panel and upgrading the 6"x8" speaker.

Owners of other Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicles such as the Taurus, Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, Mustang, Flex, Ranger, F-150, Escape, Explorer, Expedition, MKZ, MKX, MKS, MKT, Navigator, Milan, Mariner, Mountaineer, Grand Marquis & Town Car may also find this guide to be helpful.

Although the stock Ford factory speakers in the 2007-2010 Edge are more than adequate, some owners will want to upgrade them with better aftermarket speakers.

The only tools needed to complete this procedure are a Phillips head screwdriver, a 7/32 socket with ratcheting wrench and a Torx T-15 screwdriver.

To access the door speaker in a 07-10 Ford Edge, you'll first need to remove the door panel. This guide covers removing the front passenger door panel, but the procedure should be very similar if not identical for the other doors.

First use the Phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws on the outer edge of the door, the two screws on the inner edge of the door, and the two screws on the bottom lip of the door panel.

T-15 Torx Screw
Next, pop off the round plastic screw cover that hides the Torx T-15 screw just above the interior door handle. Remove the screw with a size T-15 Torx screw driver. A small flathead screwdriver may also work if you don't have any Torx tools.

The last fastener that has to be removed is a small screw located in the storage cubby hole in the door's armrest. Use a size 7/32 socket on an extension piece to unscrew it.

Move to the lower edge of the door panel and pry it up with a flathead screwdriver or just pull on it with your hands. The white plastic snap rivets should be relatively easy to pull out.

Press Connector Clip
Pull off the speaker from the door panel and disconnect the power plug by pressing on the black plastic tab. Some replacement aftermarket speakers come with adapters so that you can avoid cutting the OEM wiring. If yours didn't you can also use wire taps to connect the wires for your new speakers without cutting the stock power plug.
