How to Remove a Radio from a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1.

Place the panel-removal tool in the seam between the bezel around the radio and the dashboard. Push the panel-removal tool down to pop the bezel away from the dashboard.

2.

Place your fingers in the gap between the dashboard and the bezel. Pull the bezel toward you to release the clips around the bezel. Place the bezel on the top of the dashboard, out of the way.

3.

Unscrew the radio from the dashboard using the Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the deck out of the dashboard and turn it so that you can see the back of the stereo. Pull out the black antenna lead and then unplug the wiring harness with your hand. Take the stock deck out of the Jeep.

The stock stereo in a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee had quite a few options. But today's aftermarket decks have satellite radio, iPod integration and even more. You can add these features to your Jeep if you take out the factory head unit and install an aftermarket model, but to do so, you first have to remove the old deck. This should take about 15 minutes to do correctly.
