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.

Tundra antenna removal


You will have to un-install the entire antenna system from the inside.
remove the panel carefully adjacent to the antenna system
undo the bolts and clamps that hold the system in place
you can try and install the new antenna piece without disconnecting the transfer wire that goes back to the radio. But usually you will need to get and install a new system.
just to keep you going in the mean time you could just use a old wire coat hanger "classic" just bend the hook straight and shove it in, you have your sounds back.
all the best

How do you replace the power antenna on a 1996


You need to remove the plastic inner fender well to get to the motor. Likely you will need to remove the kick panel on the passenger side and possibly the glove box to get to the wires.
I recommend using only a factory replacement (even from a scrapyard) as the aftermarket units are often a real pain to mount. Or, you can use a standard antenna (non-power) and just tape off the plug (cheaper, just not "fancy")
Either way it takes some patience running the antenna wore through the body.
good luck

Antenna bolt broke, how to fix antenna base.


This is probably way more information than you need, but here goes. I just had the same problem with my dads 2001 YUKON and wanted to put the stock wire back. It was not easy, but it can be done.

Remove the glove box, and plastic side panel on the dash
As you are looking through the removed area, there is a silver computer there, remove the bracket and move this computer.
Behind the computer there will be the plug in for the antenna. One side goes to the radio, the other to the fender.
Unplug the cable, and tape/fasten a length of wire to it so that when you pull it out, you have a guide to get the new wire back through the firewall.
Remove the old ant. and then take the guide wire and fasten to the new cable. Pull this guide wire through while someone else is feeding from the fender area.
Replug it, and reinstall the computer and glove box door.

Also, be aware and make sure that the new cable with stud matches the ant. mast. GM changed the size of the stud (for unknown reasons)and you may need to get a new matching mast. I could not use my old one

Good luck!

Power antenna broke and I need to replace it. How


Buy replacement antenna mast. Remove old one by unscrewing the retaining cap nut. Turn on the radio & let the antenna cable run all the way up while you pull on it to remove it.
Install the new antenna mast by turning the radio 'off' so the spool inside goes back to its beginning while you feed the cable of the new antenna down into the antenna mast hole.
Once the cable is all the way down, reinstall the retaining nut/cap and turn on the radio to allow the spool to run the antenna 'UP.'... cycle the radio ON and then OFF several times allowing the antenna to move all the way up and all the way down.
That's it!
