Question about 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan
I have a 2001 Grand Caravan sport that was in a crash. I replaced it with a 2002 Grand Caravan. The opening for the stereo appears the same size but the 2001 has a cd player. I was wondering if they can be swapped and if so how I would learn how to do it. I would need to know how take the stereo out of the dash and how they connect electronically.
The whole front plastic cover over the stereo and heater controls is screwed in with two screws at the bottom of the cover, just above the cupholders. Take out those two screws and then pop off the cover, which is held in place by clips up the sides and at the top. There are four bolt/screws that hold the radio/cassette/cd (whichever you have) in place. Unscrew them and replace the stereo. Plugs SHOULD fit, and if they do just replug it and you're good to go. If the plugs DON'T match up, get a wiring harness from Best Buy or Walmart.
But be warned! Just because the stereos look VERY similar and fit very nicely into the other spot in the dash, they may NOT have matching wiring plugs. I just put a 2003 Neon CD player into my 2002 Caravan, and the harnesses didn't match up and neither did the antenna.

Pull the plastic plate/cover off in front of the stereo, remove the bolts holding it in the dash, and slide it out. 9 chances out of 10 the harnesses will snap right back together, and you'll be good to go, but you'll know for sure if you take a good look at both when you remove them. (1/2 hr. job)
