Replacing car stereo in a 2008 Jeep Patriot

I wish to replace the standard system with the higher spec 6cd/mp3/radio.I have obtained the replacement unit from another Patriot together with the anti theft code if needed.
Is this straight forward or do I need to take it to my local Jeep dealer?

thanks,

Steve

It is pretty easy if you have a few tools and know how to use them.

1-You need to pry off the trim bezel. There are just snaps holding it on, but be careful you do not pull too hard or scratch it. Use a plastic stick or small srewdriver covered with tape.

2-There will be 4 bolts at each corner of the radio to remove.

3-Pull out the radio and and remove all the connectors and the AM/FM antenna plug.

4-Reconnect your new radio and repeat steps 2 and 1.

I did this same upgrade on my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it worked without the need for a theft code.

It is too lengthy a process to explain here...have you looked elsewhere online for a video showing you what to do? Look up "Replacing 2008 Jeep Patriot axle shaft" and you'll get something. I'm assuming you have some of the tools you'll need to do this like ratchets, sockets, jack, supports to hold the vehicle while being worked on, etc.
