From INSIDE the fenderwell (behind the front tire)...You're looking at a BIG job if you've never done it before! Maybe a stop by the nearest car stereo shop ($30)
Good Luck

How do I fix Broken antenna interanl thread?

Hi Hermelinda:
since I don't know exactly what thread you are trying to fix, I'll try to answer with a couple of choices.
- What may be the best would be if the part is able to be replaced, try to get another part, either new from a dealer, or used from a wrecker.
- Assuming we can't replace the part, we have to try to determine what it actually does, as in, is this the bit that the antenna screws into? or is it part of a bracket that secures the antenna assemble?
- You might be able to get a ONE TIME FIX bu putting a very small amount of 2 component epoxy where the failed threads are, and insert the piece that threads in. Then leave it alone, at least overnight, to let it set up. Resist the urge to try to see how strong it is. Just pretent it's not been broken, and if it likes you, it will work.
Hope this helps.

How do I replace internal thread of antenna?

Your best bet is to get a thread-restorer kit from your local auto supply or tool supply. It involves re-tapping the internal thread and screwing in a wound piece that results in the original thread pitch and diameter. Or, if you can find an antenna with a larger threaded end, you can just re-tap the original inside threads to the larger size.

Have you considered getting a replacement mount from an auto wreckers, or maybe find on online?

Broken antenna

The best way is to use an EZ-out drill bit or extractor tool like Pro Grabit. I have gotten a few out just using small pick tools and gradually turning it as long as it is not cross threaded.

Antenna broken off inside base

There should be a ring with a couple of notches in it at the base of where the antenna use to be. This ring is essentially a nut and is threaded and can be easily removed giving you better access to the broken antenna. I'm assuming that you are referring to a power antenna also.

Replace power antenna with regular antenna

If the antenna is making a noise (the motor running) like it is trying to go up, but it is not doing so there is a chance that your antenna gearing strip is broken! It cost about $23 to get a new part from a dealership, and takes about 2 min to fix. When you get a new antenna with gearing strip to replace the old one all you need to do is unscrew the cap around the antenna and then turn the radio on. this will cause the antenna to come out. you will need to do the revers to put the new one in.

However, this becomes a problem if the gearing strip is broken. if so you will have to take the motor out and get the remaining part out before inserting the new one. the motor is located under the wheelwell of the passager side tire in the front of the vehicle. pretty easy to do if you have any common sense, but will probably take you an hour to complete this part of the fix.

Now, if you are wanting to replace the entire antenna with a non-motorized antenna with one that come on an old vehicle this is totally doa ble, but will take much more time and more skills on how to wire different components together. by preforming this task you will have to run a new antenna line from the antenna to the back of the radio. If it sounds like i am talking a foreign language than just take it someone to get it done! or find that cute opposite *** who knows what they are doing and have them do it for you. But dont listen to them when they tell you sure they know what they are doing, if they say it will take no more than 15 min or a couple of hours because then, They Do Not know what they are doing!
