I did a capture of the signal first on the rear speaker because they are the most accessible. I will get the response at the front speaker when I open the door to install the new speaker.
The crossover circuit is an LR design, with 3 levels of tweeter attenuation (depending on the sound system installed -Business, Professional HU, iDrive):
