AAAAGGGHHHHH Speaker Wires

I hesitate even posting this as you guys must already think I am an idiot. However I need to replace the speaker wires going to the speakers in my lower dash. Is there any way of actually getting the wires from the center of the upper dash to the speaker locations on the lower dash without taking the bloody dash off. I can't pull them through using the existing wires as they just won't budge.

If you drop the speaker and pull the wire, will it budge then? If so, tape your new wire to the old wire (at the upper dash) and pull it through.

Non rubberized coat hanger with a taped loop to drag new cables through.

Pay a stereo shop or your next post will be "I shorted out my fuse box with a coat hanger and how do I get the smoke back into the wiring and fuse panel?"

I just did this last week. I did use the old wires to pull the new ones although is was a bit of a struggle. I had to pull a lot harder than I thought was needed but they did finally budge. Pull forward and back a few times to loosen it up. Helps to push to wire through as you pull and try to keep it as straight as possible.
