The Jeep Cherokee (XJ) is a compact SUV that was manufactured and marketed by Jeep from 1997 to 2001. Sharing the name of the original full-size SJ model, but without a traditional body-on-frame chassis, the XJ instead featured a light-weight unibody design.

Jim, try this:



(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

(2) Raise and support the vehicle.

(3) Remove the front underbody splash shield.

NOTE: Remove the horn and its mounting bracket from the vehicle as a unit. Do not remove the horn from its mounting bracket.

(4) Remove the screw that secures the horn and mounting bracket unit to the radiator closure panel brace (Fig. 4).

(5) Lower the horn and mounting bracket unit far enough to access and disconnect the wire harness connector from the horn connector receptacle.

(6) Remove the horn and mounting bracket unit from behind the front bumper.
