Help - can't fit my MB Quart PCE 216 in sedan

I've read on here from numerous people that they fit the MB Quart PCE 216 components (6.5") in their sedan...

...well I tried fitting these components in my 2004 330i this weekend, and I cannot get the door panels to snap back on around the woofer now.

Will someone who's installed these give me some pointers? When I mounted the woofers I had to kinda force them in between the 3 pegs that go up around the speaker grill. I think they are sitting flush on the door panel.

Help, anyone!?

Anyone else out there have this problem? I was thinking about getting the same components for the front.

What kinda trouble are you having? Is it that the door panel won't come back in all the way? I don't know how much difference b/w the coupe and sedan doors. I have 6.5" in my front doors and there is a small gap in the bottom part of the front doors where they snap in. My cousin did all my audio work and made them fit. I've searched the forum and read somewhere that they had to make a custom bracket so that the 6.5" speaker will fit correctly.

Yes - the trouble I'm having is that the door panel won't go back in all the way - I have a small gap at the bottom part of the front doors where they snap in. Did you solve this problem? If so, how?

I have not solved that problem. The gap is small to where you can only notice it when you're looking at it. I'm planning to take my door apart and see it there is a solution or not when I have time is available.
