  1. Hi guys and gals…! I am by no means uber vehicle savvy, however, I am getting there (hopefully with your help!). I bought a 1997 Toyota Rav4 and my rear speakers don’t work. I’m wondering if after I pop off my rear inside quarter panels and move my seats up/out, which wires my rear speakers pertain to…. or try to see if they are simply unplugged. I saw a few comments on this and I got out of it that I need to ONLY remove my drivers side rear quarter panel to access rear speaker access/wiring? Or am I looking at doing the same for both sides? I have been trying to find a wiring diagram of what I’m looking for as far as the colors of wires and where the connectors are and what they look like, but to no avail. I sure don’t feel like taking it into the dealership for them to charge me an arm and a leg if all I have to do is plug a connection back in if it’s come lose. Thanks for the help!! Cheers, Lauren
