SOURCE: change a cv boot on a 1996 isuzu trooper

First their are two different front axles in 1996 troopers. Isuzu changed the 4wd system from auto lock hubs to drive control lock hube are on the older trooper's with the light and wiper switches on the dash. The same way to change both. Auto hub remove the six hex. screws slide off the hub remove the sirclip from the driveshaft. Newer hub has 6 alan-head screw's again remove them then the hubcap then the sirclip on the shaft and slide off the round spacer. Next 4 bolts from the lower balljoint and the brake's. Pull out the hub until it clear's the shaft remove the inner boot clips slide the inner boot out the shaft. Clean the grease from the end of the axle then with your fingernail feel along any of the 3 tracks in the axle and near the outer end of the track you will find a wirelike split ring slide a screwdriver under the ring and lever it off . Pull out the drive clean off the grease. You will see a sirclip on the end of the joint remove it and slide off the joint. You can replace either boot from that end. The outer joint is held on with a snap ring on the shaft inside the joint and is not easily removed need a hammer and drift to drive off the end and when removed its hard to get the snap ring on the shaft back into its place.You can change both boots from this end as well. Cheers

SOURCE: how do i remove cv axle for a 98 isuzu trooper

Go to my profile I have just explained how to change a cv boot on a Trooper. The axle needs to be taken out to change the boot so the same solution. What you call an axle I have refered to as a drive (short for driveshaft) It takes a lot of explaining so save me a lot of writing if you read the solution I gave for changing the CV boot. Cheer's

Unable to replace antenna mast because the radio will no longer cause the antenna to go up/down when powered on/off.

You need a new electric aerial fitted to the vehicle. If the motor runs, it means the internal flexible cable is broken.

Have a read of this for repair and replacement.

Mast or complete aerial?

VW Polo 1.0 1999, Aerial not working

It is usually best to check an aerial from the radio end with an ohmmeter or continuity checker. The aerial cable is a coaxial cable with a centre core that carries the signal and an outer braid that when properly grounded keeps interference to a minimum.

Measuring between the centre and the outer there should be an infinity reading on an ohmmeter, indicating no short circuits in the cable or aerial base. Measuring between the outer and a good ground the reading should be very low, no more than a few ohms indicating a good ground connection to the aerial base and of the aerial base to the bodywork.
The next test is simple and tricky at the same time as one lead of the meter will need extending. Remove the aerial mast and test for a very low reading of just 2 or 3 ohms between the cable centre and the stud or socket where the mast mounts. If all tests are fine it indicates the mast has an internal fault. If the tests aren't fine the cause is fairly intuitive.

To some extent you can perform the tests at the aerial base but the results will be limited due to the physical connection between the cable and aerial base won't be part of the test.

You need to be aware some installations are fitted with an aerial amplifier which can confuse matters and make checking more difficult.

How do i fit aerial mast only, to already existing aerial motor? thanks

Typically there are two ways: easy and major surgery. The easy way is available, depending on exactly how the old mast is broken....Car off, radio off, unscrew the external pieces of the antenna at the mount, right where it exits the vehicle...Have assistant turn on radio and activate the antenna. It should spit the whole mast and inner piece. The new one goes in, BUT BE ready to carefully and without kinks, feed the new mast assembly.
If this method does not work, you have to extract the entire motor assembly and open it up. Sometimes easier to replace the assembly.

Automatic antenna on my '97 500sl is not being driven up and down. Antenna motor runs when radio turned on and off. Antenna slides up and down manually very easily.

Mercedes preferred supplier of aerial masts is Hirschmann. There is a connector to the top of the box a coax aerial connection to the mast root, an earth lead strap and a bolted bracket to the base. The aerial mast exits through the car skin in a rubber fitted sleeve. You say that you can hear the motor running but that the mast refuses to emerge. The beauty of Hirschmann is that their motor drive antenna assemblies are readily disassembled (and reassembled). You will need to take the mast assembly out of the vehicle; disconnect the wiring plug socket, remove the bracket bolt, earth strap and unscrew the coax cable connector. Pull the mast firmly down and out of the body work sleeve. The outer aerial mast is driven up by a toothed plastic flexible inner rod normally stored in a coil within the motor assembly. Remove the torx screw in the middle of the rounded end and separate the two halves. At the top is the electric motor set horizontally which drives a rubber belt to a helical drive immediately below it lying parallel. If this belt is broken this would give rise to the motor running but not engaging . The helical drive engages with the edge of the storage drum feeding out and retrieving the coiled rod to raise and lower the antenna. If the helical drive or the drum edge has missing teeth then the aerial cannot function. All these components can be be bought from Hirschmann spares or through your Mercedes dealer.

the antenna mast has a nylon cable attached to the end of it which goes into the electric motor that raises it and lowers the mast. This cable has snapped apart causing this problem. A new mast or antenna will be needed to repair this back to working condition

Aerial for the Radio does not close when engine is switched off - buzzing noise heard

The antenna mast (multi segmented metal thing that retracts) probably has a bend/kink in it.  Lucky you if it does, because you can just replace the mast.  This is much easier than replacing the motor.  Do it soon to avoid burning out the motor, or unplug at the antenna motor if you are going to wait.
If the mast doesn't fix it, then it must be the motor, the dealer MAY be able to take back the mast if you keep the packaging,  they will NOT ever take back electrical components,  but the mast is just mechanical.  Anyway the mast shouldn't be more than $30-40, it's cheaper and easier than the motor.

My aerial is stuck on my XK8 - it goes up oK but not fully down?

If it makes a clicking sound when going up or if it is bent the aerial mast will need to be replaced, if there is no noise and it seams to work normally and just gets stuck then it needs cleaning. You can use wd40 and a cloth, with the aerial up, wipe upward (upward only, wiping down will push dirt into the mast and make it worse) spray the wd on the mast and the cloth and wipe upward, sent it down and repeat 2-3 times.

Fitting new antena aerial to Saab 93

The replacement only costs about $20. The dealer can also provide a replacement but it can cost upwards of $50+. Part number is 5035944.

The hardest part is removing the metal sleeve from the mast pole. Once you get this out, refit the new mast with the teeth so the motor will pull the new mast down when you turn the radio off. refit the 17mm nut on top of the mast and then turn the radio back on. It will click a few times and then be properly set.
