I have purchased exact same model replacement for MG2500 which developed OS10. a hardware problem.. MACBook Air OS10.12.8  has the software installed for the old one;  and that was working fine.   Can I just set up new printer without uninstalling  old software in the harddrive?  And just choose new printer in preferences. 


My recommendation, download the software for Mac OS Sierra.


Remove the printer from System Preferences > Printers and Scanners, use the minus button "(-)"


Drand the Printers software fro jthe Appliucations folder to the trash.


Restart your MAC


Run the installer, follow the directions and install the replacement device.
