I just retrofitted some speakers on my 2012 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. Figuring out how to get the door panels off was not straight forward. Postings about some older MKZs and the Ford Fusion gave me hints, but Lincoln has added some extra hidden panels and screws recently. I thought someone might appreciate if I posted pictures of how to get at all of the screws. There are 5 torx 20 screws and 1 hex head bolt that need to be removed before you can use a panel removal tool to pop off to door panel. (Other postings on the Fusion and MKZ are sufficient to figure out how to use a door panel removal tool).
Attached are 4 slides with 8 pictures on how to remove the panel. (Slide content and results are not guaranteed)
