Always put those down before entering a car wash.
the auto parts store will have a cheaper one than the dealership, or try a salvage yard.

I had the Lexus deal give me an estimate to replace the antenna motor and antenna on a 2003 SC430 and the price was around $700. I thought that was pretty high. Is it?

you can always have a stereo shop put in a replacement, usually the motors are good, but the mast is bad. masts are about $40-60

My 2004 Audi A4 radio antenna is damaged or


You can fix it yourself. The stealership wants 1500 for diagnostics and replacement. The harness is about $200 at VW. The cabs have a design defect that Audi will not acknowledge nor repair. Here is how you fix it yourself. You need to open the trunk and look at the rubber wire protector on the left side between the trunk and the lid. See picture posted. You don't have to remove any liners. Pull the rubber out of the top and very gently pull it down as far as you can exposing the antenna wires. Remove the black soft wrap

The power antenna on my wife's 2002 SC430 will not go all the way up or do I repair or replace? Can I do it myself

Your antenna is either bent, dirty and seized or the gear drive inside is stripped, Clean, examine and lube the mast to see if that helps. If not you may need to buy a replacement kit at the dealership or online.
