Are you going OEM or aftermarket?

Ok to remove the door panel feel along the bottom edge. You will feel clips there. You push the center in you will feel it click then stop. Then you can pull the entire clip out. Do that all along the bottom. Then the grab handle where you grab to close. The part you see when you look straight at it(Cover) comes off to gain access to the 2 screws behind it. Remove the 2 screws and the panel should be loose. Then you can slide it up. You will need to unplug the wiring. Then the cable for the inner handle you will see how it snaps in when you get the panel off. Then you will see the speaker.

So I've bookmarked this page for future reference; but while on the subject, my wife's 2003 XC70 does not seem to have a speaker mounted in the dashboard even though there is a speaker grill there (maybe dash speaker is a premium upgrade?).

So two questions:

1.How do Ipull that grill out w/o damaging the dash or grill itself?

and...

2.Will there be a speaker wire already there and availableto plug into a speaker if I were to go buy one from somewhere? Or is that dash speaker optionsold witha different radio altogether?
