Last two months before I have installed SQL Server 2016 SP1 based on the requirements. Now the application team have decided to downgrade SQL Server 2016 to SQL Server 2014

In this case should I uninstall SQL Server 2016 and freshly install SQL Server 2014?

As well as from the control panel shall I select SQL Server 2016(64 bit) in order to uninstall. Any other features do I have to uninstall? It is my understanding that uninstalling is easy but I just wanted to verify as well.

Please advise.
