The trick is to tie a cord to the old antenna before removing it. then pull the new antenna into place with the cord. All I can think of is to try and feed a length wire into the cavity till you can find the other end tie a cord to it and pull it through, then pull the new antenna cable into place with the cord.

Rear defrost problem


I am assuming that you mean that you are receiving interference on your radio. (Your description is very unclear.)

Window-mount antennas are notorious for bad reception and allowing interference. Your best course would be to mount an after-market external antenna on one of the fenders.

The other option would be to replace the stock Yaris radio (which is very poor quality) with a BETTER after-market radio.

How do I shift the radio antenna off the roof of my Mazda BT50 onto the bullbar?


remove the roof antenna ( unscrew off the mount) buy an aerial for the bumper. run the coaxial cable back to the radio and pull the existing cable out and after fitting a connector on to the end of the new cable plug it into the back of the radio. It will be a lot of trouble to remove the existing cable and roof mount and you will need it at a later date.

What is the easiest way to extract and replace a fixed antenna and wire from my 96 Cierra?


Hi,

If your antenna is of the electric type, mounted into the vehicle's body, then it is more common to replace the MAST only.

This is done by:

- loosen & remove the upper locking ring (between antenna & vehicle body),
- turn radio to ON. This will unwind the antenna & cable fully (if cable has teeth, note direction which cable is facing).
- feed replacement mast cable into cavity (ensure cable is facing same way as when it was removed) until cable stops feeding, and hold in position.
- turn radio power off. Cable should grab & begin to retract. Guide the new mast into position. As cable feeds in, the mast will follow and retract to its closed position.
- secure upper ring

Cheers,

Where is the antenna in the ford taurus 2000 tape player works but radio does not only static please help


Do you see a Spot where the Antenna Is suppose to be? Is it By the trunk?

Power antenna?

If you look in the trunk ,on the side that the antenna is on,you probably have a interior fabric trim panel hiding the lower end of the antenna mount. Remove the panel so you can see the antenna mount.

There is also a cable that runs to you're deck which could have been sliced/ pinched, disconnected and if so, All you would here is static.

2003 Ford Focus radio antenna broken off.


Should be a dome light in the interior that lines up with antennae on roof if it's same as I remember. Remove interior light and there should be screws in there holding base of antennae to roof. If it's just a broke off mast, try to unscrew stud from base & replace.
