How do i replace the mast for a power antenna on a 97 oldsmobile cutlass supreme?


So, I presume that the mast is broken, so, you unscrew the base nut, at the bottom of the exposed antenna, turn on the radio, the antenna will feed itself out....
if the plactic is broken, it is often easier to replace entire unit..

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

Replace power antenna with regular antenna


If the antenna is making a noise (the motor running) like it is trying to go up, but it is not doing so there is a chance that your antenna gearing strip is broken! It cost about $23 to get a new part from a dealership, and takes about 2 min to fix. When you get a new antenna with gearing strip to replace the old one all you need to do is unscrew the cap around the antenna and then turn the radio on. this will cause the antenna to come out. you will need to do the revers to put the new one in.

However, this becomes a problem if the gearing strip is broken. if so you will have to take the motor out and get the remaining part out before inserting the new one. the motor is located under the wheelwell of the passager side tire in the front of the vehicle. pretty easy to do if you have any common sense, but will probably take you an hour to complete this part of the fix.

Now, if you are wanting to replace the entire antenna with a non-motorized antenna with one that come on an old vehicle this is totally doa ble, but will take much more time and more skills on how to wire different components together. by preforming this task you will have to run a new antenna line from the antenna to the back of the radio. If it sounds like i am talking a foreign language than just take it someone to get it done! or find that cute opposite *** who knows what they are doing and have them do it for you. But dont listen to them when they tell you sure they know what they are doing, if they say it will take no more than 15 min or a couple of hours because then, They Do Not know what they are doing!
