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?

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.

My bolt that holds in my antenna has completely stripped of the threading. What is everyones advice should I get a new in dash sound system and antenna or just replace the bolt?

If you have an in fender antenna ( front fender) it should be accessible from inside the guard without removing the fender. You will have to remove the inner splash guard to get to it. Removing the wheel helps a lot to do the job The antenna is held in place in the fender by the silver nut at the base of the antenna just outside the fender.

If you can reach the motor simply disconnect the wires. Cap the wire ends to prevent a short.

I was removing the antenna, and it broke off. Do

Depending on if your car has a power antenna or not, you may have to replace the whole unit.

The good news is, no, you usually don't have to replace the wires on most GM vehicles. Open your trunk, remove the insulating carpet from the side of the trunk where your antenna is located , to expose the power antenna unit.

This is a stock photo of what the power antenna unit and kit looks likes.


Unplug the electrical connector from the antenna . Unscrew the plastic ring on the outside of the car, where the antenna rest on the body of the vehicle. Pull the antenna unit inside through the hole to remove.

You can usually get a new one for about $89 bucks at Autozone.

Installation is the reverse of remove. Make sure the ignition key is completely off when performing the replacement. Follow all installation instruction on the package. Improper installation could cause rain to leak in your antenna during bad weather and not be water tight.

How to install power antenna motor on 2001 lexus

The power antenna is a plug and go item. You will need to open the inspection cover on the inside cargo area quarter panel to reveal the motor drive. There you will find a detachable power plug , antenna cord and a series of mounting bolts.
On the outside you will find a chrome bezel which is threaded and may have several notches in it. Using a set of needle nose pliers you can unscrew the bezel which works as a threaded cap and trim ring.
Then remove the internal mounting bolts and the unit should slide down and out from the inside of the cargo area. Take your time and don`t slip forcing the pliers or you will scratch the paint. Nice vehicle, mine is at 160,000 miles and counting

2004 Jetta Radio

This is a common problem, mostly caused by corrosion to the circuitry underneath the antenna boot. You may need to replace the antenna itself. Pull off your antenna and check for corrosion. The cost is approx. $80 for the part. This is what the problem with my '04 jetta was and the tdiclub website has a good thread on the problem.
