You can unscrew the remaining part and top bottom will drop down through fender. A new one will just screw together as well. Easy fix.

You can replace the whole assembly. It could be catered from junk yard, new Toyota parts store or car radio shops. After market antennas are also available which could be put to work after a little effort.

How can i replace 1991 maxima radio system?


The original radio is a BOSE system and it has a buit in amp. So if you replaced the deck you need to replace the speakers all so. Don't cut the wires to hook-up the deck buy an addapter KIT. It's not just the stereo that runs though that harness the factory alarm does all so and that will cause you problems. Anyway back to the stereo you need to add an amplifier and problem sovled.

The hood latch cable broke under the hood how can i open it


Saturn Vue hood release can be opened (if the cable is not broken) by disconnecting the cable from the back of the release lever, grabbing the ball on the end of the cable with some large pliers ("channel locks") and pulling hard. A metal "wire keeper" bracket clamped to the cable end under the hood to serve as a spacer and the release lever works.
The purpose of this bulletin is to provide a procedure for opening the hood on the Saturn VUE and ION vehicles should the hood latch release cable mechanism become inoperative.

VUE Hood Opening Procedure Modify the Saturn radio antenna by bending the antenna mast 1 in. (2.54 cm) above the antenna base to a 25 degree angle

Open hood of similar vehicle to locate hood latch release cable to hood latch attachment point.

Using modified antenna, note approximate location that antenna will have to enter in between fascia and hood to access the hood latch cable attachment point. This should be toward the left edge of the Saturn emblem. Also note position of the modified antenna base. It should be angled downward.

Note: Use protective tape on the hood and fascia where the antenna will be inserted to protect the surfaces from scratches
On vehicle with inoperative latch, insert antenna between hood and fascia and depress the hood latch cable until the hood is opened.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya

How to replace arial in 95 camry


This is normally due to a broken antenna mast inside the motor, the mast /cable assembly should be replaced, the antenna motor has to be removed from the car and disassembled to remove the broken piece of the old cable, once that is accomplished the antenna motor is reinstalled and the new cable assembly is fed into the motor by turning the radio on until the motor stops and then turning the radio off while feeding the new mast in.

How do I install a new radio intenna? Does it twist off, I cant seem to find an entrance under the hood, and can kind of see one between the door and hood when the doors open but it looks difficult to get...


I would suggest going to the autozone.com website and register the car. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. They have the steps for replacing the antenna on your car there, I think. I was checking it out and you may want to look at some of the photos there. It may help you out. When you get into the menu for the repair manual, select "body and trim" and on the left side click on "antenna". Let me know if you have trouble and I will assist you. Hope this helped and best wishes.
