Normally this can be replaced only with the assembly as the moving antennae is a sealed piece and goes into the unit with a flexible nylon tubing to push up the telescopic antennae.
So I think that the mast alone is not marketed but it can be salvaged and replaced from a faulty one.

Testimonial: "thank you for your input. I may just replace the whole antenna as a unit should be able to get one easily."

Unable to replace antenna mast because the radio will no longer cause the antenna to go up/down when powered on/off.


You need a new electric aerial fitted to the vehicle. If the motor runs, it means the internal flexible cable is broken.

Have a read of this for repair and replacement.

Remove broken antenna


Most electric Antennas require two people to replace. First turn key on watch and listen to antenna motor as some one turns on radio do this several times. Now remove spanner nut the antenna mast goes through then have them turn radio on again this you assist the rest of the mast out of motor assembly watching what side the teeth are on the plastic cable . Now take new mast and fully extent it and lubricate with a machine oil 3 in 1 works great. slowly lower into housing trying to get first tooth hooked or close then turn radio off this will retract the antenna into the assembly hopefully on the first try it should be all the way in. don't worry re install retainer parts raise and lower several times the overrun clutching will get it in time.

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 you replace a 1989 caprice electric antenna?


Remove right side trunk panel inner liner,remove outside mast jamb nut with needle nose or lock ring pliers. Remove motor mounting bolts,remove drain and electrical connector.If you are just servicing the cable mast kit,open/split the motor drive housing and remove a small section of broken cable which will cause the antenna not to go all the way down if left there.

Replacing the antenna mast on Accord wagon


Make sure the broken mast is in the same state as the replacement mast (most likely fully retracted). There will probably be two connections on the unit, motor power and radio signal. Examine the latches on the motor power connector to see how the work; most likely you have to squeeze in a pair of plastic tabs while pulling on the connector (don't pull on the wires!) in order to unlock the connector.

Check the gasket around the antenna base. If it is hardened, and the replacement antenna does not have a good gasket with it, apply an automotive-grade body sealant or caulk to keep water from getting into the car body. (Many of those I've seen use a rubber base without a separate gasket; often this is hardened and will not seal without help once it's been removed.)

If the radio cable has a screw-on connector, put it on snugly finger tight. Cranking it on with a wrench may break the terminal inside (I've seen a number of TV tuners destroyed this way). However, most car antenna connections I've seen resemble over-sized phono plugs and jacks - push on and pull off. Often there is a protective sleeve or boot over the connector; you may have to pull it back along the cable first. Again, pull on the connector, not the cable. If that doesn't work, it may be a bayonet-style connector that you have to push in and rotate a quarter-turn counter-clockwise, then pull it off (I don't recall ever seeing that on an antenna, but it's mechanically possible).

Replace antenna on 2003 mr2 spyder


my antenna just stopped working in my MR2 2003 Spider. The motor still runs but the antenna will not go up and down. It made a weird noise and I had to pull the top of the antenna up to stop the motor from sounding loud.

Should I replace this or can you disconnect it and push the antenna up and down?

Thanks
