Either way, its a pain in the **** to replace...you are better off getting a professional to replace it. if its a powered....the motor is underneath the dashboard on the left side...behind all the fuses...good luck getting it out. if its just a regular..pretty much the same thing. the wire that connects to the radio goes down through the drivers side front pillar...behind the dash board..and finally down to the radio.

Antenna does not come up


If the antenna motor makes noise, then the antenna motor is ok, and the antenna is stuck, oil it with a light lubricating oil (3-in-1, Marvel Mystery oil, store brands, etc.)

If antenna motor makes no sound, replace. Antenna motor.

I don't have a service guide for this car to help you replace the antenna motor. Usually replacing these motors are a screwdriver job, but you may need to buy a special "antenna wrench" to remove a specialized keyed nut holding the antenna to the body.

Replacing an antenna on a 2001 ford focus wagon-is it hard?


Replacing antennas on most cars is not hard, unless you have an automatically erecting antenna.

Simply unscrew the base of the antenna where it meets the body. Sometimes there is a little key, or tool specific to remove the antenna.

Replace in reverse order. :)

I was removing the antenna, and it broke off. Do


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.

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!

Antenna replacement


There should be a nut at the base of the antenna or in the car right under the antenna. take that off. then there might be two ways to do it. 1. you might have to run new antenna wire to under the dash board. or the antenna will need the adapter right under where the antenna sits.
