Question about 1985 Mazda RX-7

Open Question

Power antenna I replace the OEM power antenna on my 1985 RX7. I can make the mast go up and down by "hot wiring" it. But when I try to make the correct, final connection, nothing happens. This car has a power antenna relay, and I was wondering if that is bad, will the antenna work?

How to replace a1985 rx7 antenna

you have to remove the tail light assemble to get the antenna and motor out. Remove the 10mm nuts and unplug the harness from the lamp assembly. Carefully remove the assembly, to save the seal. It has to slide to the outside a little to clear the two outer studs.
Remove the back and right side quarter panels. loosen two 10mm nuts for the antenna, remove the retaining ring fender; remove 10mm nuts; unplug power and antenna leads; move bottom of assembly forward to clear fender; remove through tail light hole.
