Question about 1994 Lincoln Town Car
I can push the ant. down by hand a little bit then it will go down next time you start car ant. will come up. do i have to buy the whole thing or just a new ant.
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.
