SOURCE: 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

Reverse the wires, one is hot going up and the other hot going down, the easiest way to deal with this is to just reverse them.

If there is a slot in the "fender hole", it unscrews with a big screwdriver If not, check for a slide clip under fender where it goes through.

I am assuming that you mean that you are receiving interference on your radio. (Your description is very unclear.)

Window-mount antennas are notorious for bad reception and allowing interference. Your best course would be to mount an after-market external antenna on one of the fenders.

The other option would be to replace the stock Yaris radio (which is very poor quality) with a BETTER after-market radio.

Mazda antenna 6 broken how to fix


replace the antenna, or if its in the windshield, replace the windshield. You can buy an aftermarket antenna that will work, only thing is where you decide to mount it. Mounting nut for antenna is inside fender, and you have to reach up there at base of antenna to loosen and remove it.

Where is the power antenna motor located for a 1992 buick regal?


I have not owned a buick for years. However, the one I did have trouble with the power antenna motor was located directly under the antenna. It was in the rear fender housing. I have to remove the trunk lining on the side of the fender. It was mounted a bracket. It was easy to replace as it all comes as a complete assembly. Hope that helped

Replace antenna


Remove old Antenna
  1. Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Gain access to the underside of the area of the trunk where the antenna is located.
  4. Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Remove the mast.
  6. Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.

Install new Antenna
  1. Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  2. Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  3. Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable.
  4. Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  5. Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  6. Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  7. Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  8. Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  9. Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  10. Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  11. Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  12. Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  13. Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  14. Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

    Give these instructions a shot. Might be too generic but might be enough to get you going. Removing Original Antenna
  1. Step 1 Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Step 2 Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Step 3 Gain access to the underside of the area where the antenna is located.
  4. Step 4 Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Step 5 Remove the mast.
  6. Step 6 Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Step 7 Remove the ground lead from the panel.

  10. Step 10 Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.
    Installing the New Power Antenna
  11. Step 1 Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  12. Step 2 Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  13. Step 3 Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable. (On some General Motors and Ford cars you may need an adapter to mate the 2 cables together. Car audio retail stores sell such an adapter.)
  14. Step 4 Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
