Step 1: Open Door
Step 2: Remove screw from door handle and then remove
Step 3: Remove connector from handle by pushing the white clip in and then release.
Step 4: On the door card remove plastic cap and then remove screw
Step 5: Remove the screw from the door lock then remove plastic surround
Step 6: Now pull the door card off (I found starting at the bottom where the speaker is was best)
Step 7: Now unscrew the speaker (not the plastic holder)
Step 8: Unclip the speaker cable
Step 9: Now remove the plastic holder from the door
Step 10: Use the plastic holder to mark out new speaker holder using MDF
Step 11: Cut out speaker holder (speaker hole may require tweaking)
Step 12: Mount new speaker to MDF holder
Tweeters
Step 13: Place tweeter holder plastic corner on the door where they will be mounted and mark drill holes
Step 14: Remove plastic corner from door (just need to pull this off)
Step 15: Drill out screw holes and hole for the speaker cable
Step 16: Mount tweeters

Component System
Step 18: Remove the lid from the unit by squeezing the sides
Step 19: Cut out shape to fit Component unit with a 3x3cm tongue
Step 20: Add a 1.5×1.5cm lip
Step 21: Screw component to component mount
Fixing together
Step 22: Fix component system into the hole above the speaker. There should be one screw hole to the left of the door. Placing the component holder behind the door should reach this hold for fixing
