This antenna is usually the input for GPS. The replacement would be a dealer only item.

Broke radio antenna

Ive done that a few times over the years when I forgot to push the antenna down when going through the car wash. Depending on where the antenna is, you have to get behind the panel it is mounted on. IE/ The guard, roof, windscreen frame. This will mean removal of whatever panel is behind to get to it.

How to remove rear panel cover

wow a CB, havent done them since 1965. (i worked at REACT)

or smokey and the bandit era,

even truckers use CELLS now.

but CB is good for hunting. (and SSB is #1 way)

better is hand held, long range, handy talkies. DSS tech. (even sold at walfart or for sure any sports stores)

The best antenna is a long whip, longer is ALWAYS better.

and mounted to the rear bumper.

Mounted there, the signals will be very strong from across top center of car. (I used to do military , field tests for signal mapping of antenna\'s) (and searching for lost folks with CB in cars, triangulation and directional loops etc, way before GPS , made folks brave, in the woods.)

rear panel cover (of what) are you inside the cab>?


im and expert in tuning any real radio transmitter,

we tune for lowest SWR.

the FSM covers all this. about all panels buy a used FSM

off ebay

or try and read the body sections.

most cars, panels inside come off after getting trim off.

door panels pop off

the key here is to remove the plastic without breaking it.

the $64,000 dollar question on all cars. a skill to learn.

I just login, and read.

but a pro, will proceed very carefully to find out which way the maker

did his craft.

no year stated, or exact model, only Pickup.

so cant look it up.

How do I remove power antenna from 1992 300 zx

pop the rear deck lid and remove the right rear plastic trunk cover. To do this you will remove the small plastic piece that is directly in front of the right rear tail light. Then remove the big plastic screw that retains the center plastic deck lid cover. Now remove the three 10mm nuts that keep the right rear plastic cover secured. Remove the right rear plastic cover. Be careful as it can crack if you put too much pressure on it. Look inside and to the right rear where the antenna mast comes up. You will see a small 10mm nut that holds the antenna mast to the body. Take that nut off. This will release the outer body cover from the inner cover. Remove the outer body cover and then remove the two screws from the OUTSIDE of the body cover. Now follow the antenna body down and you will see two or three additional small nuts that hold the antenna assembly metal bracket in place. Remove these. Unplug the antenna co-ax cable from the input. It just slides out. Unplug the antenna connection as well. This is the jack that has the power wires. You will also need to unscrew the ground wire from the inner body frame. There might be a nut on top of the actual antenna mast. If so, just unscrew it. The entire antenna assembly will now lift out. It's a mildly tight fit but you don't need to be too gentle in this step. Normally the problem is the antenna belt has broken inside the antenna assembly and there is no hope of replacing that belt. You have to replace the entire assembly. I found mine on Craigslist from a guy parting his totaled Z. May it rest in peace. His loss - my gain! Typical price is $65, maybe you can talk him down to $50. Installation is the above process in reverse.

2008 vera cruz. AM reception is poor. It is better when engine is off but is still poor. FM and XM are good reception. Radio is integral with the GPS system. Hyundai has given up on fixing the problem....

Most radio reception problems that occur only while the car is running are caused by damaged diodes in the alternator. It can be difficult to diagnose this since most dealers and repair shops will not disassemble the alternator to test the diodes. If you can find a shop that rebuilds alternators they can test for bad diodes and replace them if necessary. Hope this helps.
