Question about 2000 Toyota 4Runner
My 2000 4runner is having the problem of the antenna not going down when the radio is turned off. it is making the sound like the motor is trying to pull it down, but it won't. i have to manually push it down. the sound lasts about 10 seconds or so then goes away. it also makes the sound when it goes up and lasts for about the same time. is this something that i can do myself or easier to take it in somewhere? if so........could someone explain it step by step in a way to understand? thank you very much.

SOURCE: Antenna will not retract.
The most likely cause is your antennae mast is broken or has stripped its teeth. The mast is sold separately and contains the snake-like gear. The motor must be removed through the right inner fender well. You may have to open up the gear in the motor to get out the broken piece of the snake-like gear,

mate this problem is easier to solve than you think but it depend s if you are near a place that sells car parts if so just ask them for a new mast and take it home there will be a little crome nut around the arial base undo this and yank the old one out while putting the radio on ,the isides should come out to ,now feed the new one in while turning the radio off the will start to reel the new tail in ,best to have a little helper, the arial will go down and put the crome nut back on problem solved

This is a shot in the dark ... spray your antenna with some cleaner or lubricant product. WD-40 comes to mind though this is not a true lubricant. Put a rag at the base of the antenna to keep the spray off the finish of your Toyota.
I hope this works for you ...
