If the plastic toothed cable is broken. on "some" model cars I have seen where you can buy just the antenna and not the antenna motor too. if you buy only the replacement antenna it should come with the plastic cable attached to it. the cable will have teeth on it. I have on an old volvo I had once performed the following: I with the old antenna removed from the motor section along with the broken section of the plastic cable, turn on the radio. then feed the new antenna down into the hole and hold it steady. turn the radio off and then it will start to wind the cable down into the motor while pulling the antenna down. thats it and it worked perfect from then on. I hope this helps. if it works for your model please rank this answer... thanks, good luck

Had problem in the past. emailtozash's solution worked for me. Only suggestion is fine tuning; first check which way the plastic cable is going to be taken up. On my '94 Towncar, you can pull back the carpeting on the driver's side of the trunk and see which direction the cable will reel in. When you insert the cable you want the teeth to be facing so the motor screw mechanism will engage the cable teeth (and not just gnaw on the untoothed side of it). In my '94 motor is on top of the take-up reel. Second, suggest you have someone else operate the radio so you can keep the antenna close to vertical and plastic cable aligned per above; may also have to do a little jiggling to get the teeth to mesh.

How do I get the antenna to fully go down when cutting car off?

I have the same problem with mine. The antenna should go down when you turn the key to the off position. When it stays up or only goes down a little, you can actually push it down with your hand. It will not hurt it. Just make sure you push it straight down as not to bend or fold it over. It is just wearing out and needs to be replaced.

Having trouble replacing rear brake pads on a 1994 Lincoln Conntinental. Purchased a special tool to conpress the wheel cylinder. Left hand threads? Tried right handed and no luck. Please help!

The tool only turns in the parking brake adjuster
You still have to push the piston in.

Open the bleeder valve
You have to flush the system on ALL
vehicles every 2 years anyway.

Have a 1994 Lincoln v8. it was running fine and then smoke started to come out the exhaust. It started to run like it did not have power. I shut it off and tried to start it again and it would not start....

you may i have weak batteries, lets just hope for that. but i suggest to get a little help from a mechanic, you might have a broken timing belt/chain. have it replaced if the batteries arent the problem

It sounds like the linkage may be out of adjustment a bit. If it is not either in Neutral or Park, of course it will not let the starter engage, Try to start it in Neutral if it will not start in Park, or try it in neutral, and pull or push on it a bit. If it starts when you push or pull it, adjust the linkage that goes to the switch, I think it is under the console cover.

The power antenna on my 1984 Eldorado is stuck. The motor keeps running but the antenna wont go down.

Hello, you need a new mast installed in your antenna, or a new whole unit.
If you open the trunk and on the right side by the ant. pull the mat down a little. You should now see the ant. About halfway up you will see some wires. If you disconnect either one of them your ant will quit running. The are plugged into the relay, so is is best to unplug the car harness side, if possible, but it does not matter which you do.
