Normally there is a big nut on the back side of the aerial. Or possibly several smaller ones, depending on the type of aerial.
To help route the wire back to the radio, attach a string or similar to the plug before you remove the old aerial, you then pull the string through with the old wire, and can use this to pull the new wire back into place.

Alternatively, get a wire coat hanger and jam it into the stump of the broken aerial. May not be pretty, but they work reasonably well.

Why is there radio static all stations Hyundai Elantra


Sounds like you have damaged the FM aerial which is located as a copper film on the inside of the back window where the heater element is. There are connectors too. Children and dogs damage them.

How do I fix poor radio recption on a 2012 Grand Vitara Urban fitted with Garmin sat nav/digital radio.


Poor reception and low volume of any radio is mostly caused by poor aerial performance.

If the aerial has been eliminated, the unit is properly grounded, has a good current and voltage supply and the loudspeakers and wiring have all been tested and found to be ok then the fault must be inside the radio.

In lots of parts of the world the ambient temperatures in the height of summer and the depths of winter can be outside the operating temperature range of the radio. It is not wise to switch on when these conditions exist as delicate electronics are easily damaged, especially when condensation might have formed on internal circuit boards.
My father once switched on his car radio after the car had been parked in the sun and something inside failed instantly. The repair guy said it was a common problem.

One further thought. Is the alternator overcharging; producing an excessive voltage that could damage the radio or alternatively is a loose supply or ground connection causing a strong surge current and inducing an excessive voltage in a nearby inductance...

How do I get my antenna off on a 1988 Nissan pulsar?


I can't find information on your model but generally a car aerial doesn't represent many problems unless it is a roof aerial sited in the centre front or rear of the roof. In this case it is usually necessary to access the underside of the aerial.
If the aerial is at the corner of the roof, retracting into a windscreen pillar, the manual versions sometimes withdraw upwards after releasing a single screw but sometimes they must be withdrawn downwards, especially if it is an electrically operated version. In this case access is usually restricted and there is limited room to withdraw the unit. Replacing this type of aerial is usually a struggle from start to finish entailing the removal of under-dash units, carpet, insulation and so forth.

Good luck!

Aerial


Thought i would reply to your lonely thread. I had to replace the aerial on my last 159 as it was broken when i first got it, i replaced it with a bee sting type off0 ebay didnt cost much was worried it might be a bit rubbish but turned out to be pretty good. As far as i can remember i managed to remove the rear end of the head lining (below the aerial) by popping off the two poppers holding the headling to the roof i then managed to disconnect the cable that connects to the aerial and undo what i remember was one nut that connects to the aerial thread inside car. The job was fiddly but only because i did not want to remove the head lining any more than i had to. but not difficult. without head lining in way it really would be a two minute job.

Hope it helps

Hi,just want to know where fuse for electric aerial is situated as aerial is damaged and makes terrible noise when i start my truck and turn it off.my vehicle is a 1996 mitsubishi challenger


Hi,
Ussually the fuse is in the aerial motor connector or comes with the radio fuse.
If ur annoyed by the antenna, just disconnect the electrical connector in the antenna, not the antenna wire!

U could buy the rod of the antenna only it is chepaer than buying the whole assembly!

Order it in ur nearest parts dealer!
