Driver side speaker repair

Did someone tell you to check the wiring going through the rubber accordion
in the hinge area for broken wires.  When my driver side speaker went out,
the speaker wires were broken in the hinge as well as a few others looking
worn.  Just a thought before you remove your door panel.  If you do remove
your door panel there are a few other things you should check while you are
in there.  Lube your window regulator and all the lock mechanism.

Thanks all for the tips and write up for the door speakers and for the fore
warning.  Glad I didn't get in there with a flat head!  Looks like I've got
new project.
