This is for a 1998, but the 1997 should be the same.

1. Remove the black trim panel holding the cruise control and sport mode buttons from around the shifter. There are 4 clips holding the panel on: upper left, lower left upper right and lower right. Be careful, they break easily. Remove the wires from the buttons.

2. There are two brackets holding the wood panel down, one on each side of the shifter. Remove the two screws holding down each bracket. Be sure you note the orientation of the brackets - it will make reinstallation easier. Lift off the wood trim panel. When reinstalling don't overtighten these screws as they will crack the veneer.

3. Under the wood trim you just removed, there are two 5mm hex bolts fastening the console to the car. Remove them.

4. At the rear of the console is a trim cover. It is held by two tension clips. Just pull it off.

5. There are two 5 mm hex bolts under the rear trim cover - remove them.

6. Remove the shifter knob and place shifter in reverse. Set parking brake first.

7. Remove the console. Be sure to disconnect the lighter and ashtray light connectors.

9. Remove the 6 Philips screws holding the radio/ heater controls stack in the dashboard and pull the whole assembly out.

10. Remove the antenna wire and wiring harness connectors from the back of the radio.

11. Unbolt the ground wire from the back of the radio.

Reinstall in reverse order.

If it's the same as a 1994 XJ6, there is a code under the bonnet on the driver's side (at the top when open). Enter the last 4 digits. If there's no sticker, you need to remove the radio to get the serial number, and contact a dealer.
