You don't. Go to a salvage yard and buy a used antenna unit and replace the entire assembly.

Or, to save money, take a pliers and extend the antenna out. It won't retract, but you can still enjoy your radio.

How to replace a1985 rx7 antenna


you have to remove the tail light assemble to get the antenna and motor out. Remove the 10mm nuts and unplug the harness from the lamp assembly. Carefully remove the assembly, to save the seal. It has to slide to the outside a little to clear the two outer studs.
Remove the back and right side quarter panels. loosen two 10mm nuts for the antenna, remove the retaining ring fender; remove 10mm nuts; unplug power and antenna leads; move bottom of assembly forward to clear fender; remove through tail light hole.

Remove broken antenna


Most electric Antennas require two people to replace. First turn key on watch and listen to antenna motor as some one turns on radio do this several times. Now remove spanner nut the antenna mast goes through then have them turn radio on again this you assist the rest of the mast out of motor assembly watching what side the teeth are on the plastic cable . Now take new mast and fully extent it and lubricate with a machine oil 3 in 1 works great. slowly lower into housing trying to get first tooth hooked or close then turn radio off this will retract the antenna into the assembly hopefully on the first try it should be all the way in. don't worry re install retainer parts raise and lower several times the overrun clutching will get it in time.

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.

How to replace arial in 95 camry


This is normally due to a broken antenna mast inside the motor, the mast /cable assembly should be replaced, the antenna motor has to be removed from the car and disassembled to remove the broken piece of the old cable, once that is accomplished the antenna motor is reinstalled and the new cable assembly is fed into the motor by turning the radio on until the motor stops and then turning the radio off while feeding the new mast in.

Replace antenna on 2003 mr2 spyder


my antenna just stopped working in my MR2 2003 Spider. The motor still runs but the antenna will not go up and down. It made a weird noise and I had to pull the top of the antenna up to stop the motor from sounding loud.

Should I replace this or can you disconnect it and push the antenna up and down?

Thanks
