If you take off the bonnet relase mech, you can get your hand up inside, it is very much a pain in the rear (and wrist) to do but it is possible.
Musch harder is mounting new ones. The stock units are 6x4's. I replaced mine with a set of JBL 6x4's. To mount them I had to cut and modify the original brackets which come out attached to the speakers, and then push them back into place while a mate replaced the screws.
My Justy has since put a conrod out the front of the engine. So I may still have the speakers complete with mod'd brackets.
i had 4" speakers in my 89 and it didn't take much to remove them i was able to shift them back about an inch ans slide them side ways (which destroyed the alredy blown speakers) as for replacements i ran a set of kenwood 6.5" under the front seats
Yes...Pain in the junk. If you have tiny handed or whippersnapper family/friends... have them reach up in there at least to undo/retrieve the driver side. Passenger side isn't too bad, just 'drop the glove box door for decent access (undo the stop). Take one of the stock speakers with you to the electronics shop to get as close a fit as possible. It will save you time fitting it back in place and bending the mount brackets or drilling new holes. As my little 4's were fairly blown, the improvement in sound was day and night.

I will have a detailed DIY to add to this thread in the next coming days. I just finished installing my new 4x6 Kicker DS460's. They fit without a problem, sound amazing for the price ($36 shipped off Ebay) and will probably outlast the Justy itself Pics and DIY to come...
Wow, just changed mine, and they were far easier then most cars this vintage. Drivers side i did not (and could not get it loose) remove the hood latch. I removed some little black box that was in my way and the speaker just about fell out. Passenger side was harder since under/behind the glove box is where i put all the boxes for the alarm/pwr/doors etc.
deegore: I slept in my 2 door driving from AZ to MN. Some front seats that fold flat would be necessary to really get comfortable.

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.
