1989 oldsmobile cutlass ciera 3.3L V6 power antenna broken
How do I replace the power antenna (it snapped off near the base)? Should I go under the wheel well, the front quarter panel, or from inside the vehicle? My power antenna is located on the passenger side front quarter panel, and the base is sunk in, almost hidden from view. Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

Try removing the panels to get access to the cable under the dashboard, it may have broken near the pull handle and you may be able to get at the remaining piece there and pull it. Other option may be to try from under the front of car.
Easy peasy...under where the antenna mounts should be the motor if its retractable and electrical connector..d/c the connector and remove the bracket, antenna should pull out - reverse for installation!
So, I presume that the mast is broken, so, you unscrew the base nut, at the bottom of the exposed antenna, turn on the radio, the antenna will feed itself out....
if the plactic is broken, it is often easier to replace entire unit..
I assume it is an extendable antenna, if so loosen the ring around the antenna base there are usually like 4 slots on it, after you have removed the ring, have some one turn your car to the accessory mode and turn the radio on, your antenna or what is left should come right out, to install your new one just feed cable down hole and have them turn your radio off you may need to spin the antenna just a touch to let it catch cable, be sure to put your antenna ring back on.
New kick down cable, that cable is for your passing gear, easy chg. unhook from throttle and take little bolt out that holds plastic peace on trans and you will see how its connected in trans. it will look like a little piece of wire with a bend in it and the end of cable will have a hole that slips over to connect it to cable. You will understand it when you see it.
I am doing intake gaskets right now on an expedition and you have to look carefully around and take your time and you will find what is holding you up from taking it out because nowhere in the book does it state you had to take the two bolts out for the thermastat housing on the expedition that I am working on you can also go to auto zone and they can give you a diagram because you will need the torque specs anyways
