You have to remove the front quarter panel. Mine broke so I don't use the radio anymore and bought a satellite radio.

additional info: this is something that I did and did not have to remove the quarter panel. While I did not replace the old power antenna with the same (the cost seemed to me to be not worth it) the process is the same. Since the antenna is mounted on a sharply angled piece of body work none of the parts store antenni that I tried would sit at an upright angle so I bit the bullet and bought a dealer provided regular replacement so it would sit upright instead of leaning at a weird angle off the car. Vastly cheaper than the auto antenna option. Then, with the steering wheel turned fully right I removed the screws holding the plastic fender liner so that I could see up into the small space holding the defective auto antenna. This is a really small space but you CAN get in there with some Yankee ingenuity and remove the bolts and bracket that hold the old one in. Safety glasses are a good idea here as there is lots of dirt and dust up in there. The new antenna goes in much easier because it doesnt have the electric motor ect. Instead of running the new antenna lead to the radio which was a whole other box of worms I cut the existing lead inside that space and using Radio Shack connectors just created a new female connection on the antenna lead. While I did lose the fancy function of the power up and down antenna I can now listen to the radio and this single piece of steel stands up to low tree branches and car washes much better than the old hollow multi-segmented auto one ever did.

I have used the old antenna shaft and refitted it to mount on the old base. This is what I did. I did not want to spend the money for a new automatic antenna. My old shaft broke off near the base. I still had the old shaft. So I pulled the second section away from the first. This exposed a copper fitting inside the second section. (The second section also included the third and fourth sections). I simply rounded out this exposed copper fitting to slide over the broken section of antenna still remaining on the car. I rounded out the exposed section still remaining on the car by using a pair of plyers and eye-balling it. So now the radio works and receives all stations, the antenna does not retract but is stationary (even though the automatic antenna motor still works), and the repair fix cost me nothing ($0.00). When I go to a car wash, I get out and take off the three section of antenna. Then replace it when the car is clean. Hope this might help.

Unfasten the mud guard in the wheel well enough to pull it aside and reach up to the antennae. Remove the kick panel to find where the cable enters the jeep.

Can you install a power antenna on a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee limited?

Yes but I'm not sure the benefits of doing so would ever be worth the hassles you'd encounter getting into the very small spaces that the drive motor has to be mounted and if you have an aftermarket stereo in the jeep you'll have to figure out the wiring. Most people want to replace a defective power antenna with a plain one.
