    Non Bose looks like this:

    The ones on the left are the rears, the ones on the right are the 4" fronts.
    Are you sure it's the speaker?
    They run off a separate amp inside the tupperware sub so it is possible it could be the amp (depending on the nature of the fault).
    You can pick up a whole new sub unit for about £20 but it is quite a process to swap them.
    To get the rear speaker panel off, you need to remove the side footwell trim in the front then the sill trim as they are all interlocked. You can do it without, but you'll never get it to fit back in properly. Then just remove the rear seat bottom and fold the seat back down and working your way up the door pillar pull hard to release the metal clips. Remember to open the rear window and prise up the window rubber.
