How do I get my antenna off on a 1988 Nissan pulsar?

I can't find information on your model but generally a car aerial doesn't represent many problems unless it is a roof aerial sited in the centre front or rear of the roof. In this case it is usually necessary to access the underside of the aerial.
If the aerial is at the corner of the roof, retracting into a windscreen pillar, the manual versions sometimes withdraw upwards after releasing a single screw but sometimes they must be withdrawn downwards, especially if it is an electrically operated version. In this case access is usually restricted and there is limited room to withdraw the unit. Replacing this type of aerial is usually a struggle from start to finish entailing the removal of under-dash units, carpet, insulation and so forth.

Good luck!

VW Polo 1.0 1999, Aerial not working

It is usually best to check an aerial from the radio end with an ohmmeter or continuity checker. The aerial cable is a coaxial cable with a centre core that carries the signal and an outer braid that when properly grounded keeps interference to a minimum.

Measuring between the centre and the outer there should be an infinity reading on an ohmmeter, indicating no short circuits in the cable or aerial base. Measuring between the outer and a good ground the reading should be very low, no more than a few ohms indicating a good ground connection to the aerial base and of the aerial base to the bodywork.
The next test is simple and tricky at the same time as one lead of the meter will need extending. Remove the aerial mast and test for a very low reading of just 2 or 3 ohms between the cable centre and the stud or socket where the mast mounts. If all tests are fine it indicates the mast has an internal fault. If the tests aren't fine the cause is fairly intuitive.

To some extent you can perform the tests at the aerial base but the results will be limited due to the physical connection between the cable and aerial base won't be part of the test.

You need to be aware some installations are fitted with an aerial amplifier which can confuse matters and make checking more difficult.

Aerial has stopped working

It sounds like your aerial mechanism is worn out ,or needs lubricating ,if you can get to it open the casing and add a finger full of petroleum jelly this should be ample lubricant and you may have to physically move the aerial down ward to get it to work again .

Thought i would reply to your lonely thread. I had to replace the aerial on my last 159 as it was broken when i first got it, i replaced it with a bee sting type off0 ebay didnt cost much was worried it might be a bit rubbish but turned out to be pretty good. As far as i can remember i managed to remove the rear end of the head lining (below the aerial) by popping off the two poppers holding the headling to the roof i then managed to disconnect the cable that connects to the aerial and undo what i remember was one nut that connects to the aerial thread inside car. The job was fiddly but only because i did not want to remove the head lining any more than i had to. but not difficult. without head lining in way it really would be a two minute job.

Hope it helps

Normally there is a big nut on the back side of the aerial. Or possibly several smaller ones, depending on the type of aerial.
To help route the wire back to the radio, attach a string or similar to the plug before you remove the old aerial, you then pull the string through with the old wire, and can use this to pull the new wire back into place.

Alternatively, get a wire coat hanger and jam it into the stump of the broken aerial. May not be pretty, but they work reasonably well.
