Question about 1991 Mercedes-Benz 190
My merc started yesterday to make a clicking sound from the automatic antenna which has never worked since I have owned it. It started before I even turned the key. I was putting luggage in the trunk and it started. Any ideas?
To stop the noise from returning, simply disconnect the electrical connector near the antenna motor (follow the wires out of the unit). this unit may be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned (especially the copper electrical contacts) to restore it to near new condition sometime in the future....about 3 to 4 hours for a novice.the clicking is due to the motor "coming alive" when an electric signal can get through the oxidized contacts. prolonged "clicking" may not harm the unit...there is some chance the antenna's nylon gear track has separated...try to pull up on the antenna itself after disconnecting car battery. if it cannot be pulled up, then chances are good for earlier described restoration. if motor housing looks VERY corroded, a full replacement of unit is best sol'n.
