Question about 2003 Ford F150 Regular Cab

F-150 whip style truck antenna

The whip style antenna base on my 2003 Ford F-150 is loose. From what i can see it is held by screws that are screwed in from the top side. The problem is that the base has a cover that I am not sure of how to remove so that I may tighten the screws.

The cover just pops off. I like using a door panel tool and get under the lip of the cover and pop it off.

How do you fix a snapped off antenna on a kia soul


@womonsoft7 I'm giddy with childish excitement because this actually worked for me "If you're lucky, you can sometimes just push a screwdriver against the edge of the screw and rotate the screw out that way". After reading this I thought it would be worth a try...It just happened to be loose enough for this to work. My Antenna was broken off by a low clearance garage door, actually thought I smashed in the roof, but it was just the antenna. Easiest fix imaginable.

Poor reception


Usually has to do with the antenna. Could be broken or loose whip, shield is broken underneath base. If the antenna checks out then you may need to have the radio calibrated or replaced.

Carb adj F-150 1985 1 barrel


U are not describing a carb adjustment issue but a carb dirt issue or an intake manifold leak or the base of the carb is loose (very,very common), twist the carb body if it moves the base of carb has come loose, but back to the adjustments, set the rough idle speed to spec, then turn the mixture screw out about 3 1/2 turns, then turn slowly in while you watch a hand held tach, when the eng reaches its maxium idle speed the mixture is correct, then turn it in 1/3 more to pass smog and maximize fuel economy, then set the final idle with the idle speed screw, also verify the dash pot works so the throttle closes slowly when you raise rpm, if the little decel dashpot is no good replace it.

2003 Ford Focus radio antenna broken off.


Should be a dome light in the interior that lines up with antennae on roof if it's same as I remember. Remove interior light and there should be screws in there holding base of antennae to roof. If it's just a broke off mast, try to unscrew stud from base & replace.
