I'd open up the left rear door card, and have a look at the speaker first. If the connections seem secure, I'd see if I can connect up the wires to another test speaker and see if any sound comes through.

Okay, the left speaker is dead. Must be Covid19. Tested with another speaker no issue. With what do you replace them as I guess you need to do both back one's. Not even sure if you can buy OEM's and their cost. The other thing, should it be 8 Ohms or are 4 Ohms ok?

I'd bet you can get a replacement at a dealer, but probably at the price of a full 3rd party speaker system.
Sorry, my knowledge of speakers and impedance is very limited, hopefully someone else can assist.
