There are request for DIY walkthrough for installation of the 3D Rotary tweeters. I shall split the instructions into 2 parts for categorization and ease of search. 

The tool you absolutely need is simply just a Torx driver with T30 Torx bit. The rest are really good to have: trim removal pry, grip work gloves, addition narrow tip flat heas screw driver to depress the connector's  release tabs.

And before starting, lower both the front windows  until fully retracted, reduce the chance of brealing the glass panels. 

Next swtich off the engine and power to the car.  

1. Using the T30 torx bit driver, unscrew the torx headed screws from the 2 locations circled in red. A magnetized torx bit will be better to make sure your unscrewed screws don't drop into some of the narrow gaps in the door frame.

2. Next, use the interior trim pry to pull the interior door panel from the metal door frame. The locations of the various panel studs are shown in the picture as illustrated. So pry at the right location. Be careful of the door lock stub once the panel is pulled free from the frame. Make sure you don't lose any of the panel studs.

3. Once the inteior door panel is free from the door frame, remember you still have a few connections to release before the whole panel can be moved aside. 

- Unhook the door latch cable and unplug the connector as shown.

- unolug the original speaker cable and connector from the door panel speaker.

- unplug the wires and blue connectors that are plugged into "5" and "6" slots on the Door Control Module (DCM)

After all the above is done, you can remove the interior door panel and move it aside to a safe location so as not to scratch or damage the surfaces. 

Now you are ready to install the 3D Rotary tweeters.
