The only reason to have an electrical wire going to the antenna is for a motor that raises and lowers the antenna. The antenna cable to the radio is the only wire on the antenna.
To replace the antenna, you have to remove it from where it connects onto the car, then lift it out from there. The antenna and the cable cannot be separated, it's all one piece. You pull the cable off of the back of radio, and tie a strong string onto it, because when you lift out the antenna, the cable will be pulled out from under the dash and to wherever the antenna is situated and out that hole. Now tie the string onto (hope you had a long string, lol) the end of the cable on your new antenna and cable, and stick the end of the cable into the antenna mounting hole. Pull the string from under the dash by the radio and you will bring the cable back into the dash and where you can plug it into the old radio and listen to good old music again !

Bulb failure pasrking light

Taillight bulb needs replacing, high above brake light at approx height of bottom of side widow.
Remove plastic panel at interior rear corner, remove thin backing insulation and reach up with fingers between metal flanges. Feel for a plastic "fin" approx 3" long x 1" wide that is attached to lightbulb. Similar "fin" for brake light is visible (white color). You need to feel above this. Fin is probably gray color, but you can't see it. Twist slightly counterclockwise and pull out. Bulb is attached to end of "fin". Insert new bulb and replace.
