I tried to unscrew it from the base but it seems to be attached from somewhere inside. I tried pulling it out with some pliers and that didn't work so I'm stumped...

All you should have to do is unscrew it from the base mount on your car. the antenna itself is all that you should have to replace, not the wire.

Fix A Honda Accord Antenna


Anyone that has owned an older Honda Accord (1990-1998 or so) has probably had a problem with their radio antenna. My problem was actually there when I bought the car. Whenever I would turn the car off the antenna would retract and when it was all the way in it would make this horrible grinding/clicking noise. Eventually it stopped working all together. As I was looking into this problem I found out that it was a very common problem, but one that had a very easy solution. I would say that almost anyone could preform this antenna fix. If you are having the same problems here is how to fix it:<br>
1) Get a replacement antenna mast. You can find them on Ebay for around $15.

2) Remove the old mast by taking off the chrome nut that hold the antenna onto your fender. You might need a small hammer and a punch to get it off. It should be fairly tight. <br>
3) Pull out the old mast. You have to give it a good tug as the end is in there tight. Check to see if it is all there. If some of it is still stuck in the antenna motor you might need to take it apart to get it all out.<br>
4) Turn the radio on then put the new mast into the hole for the antenna with the teeth facing the rear of the car. Push it as far as it will stopping when it won't go in anymore. You don't want to force it.<br>
5) Have a friend turn off the antenna while you guide the new mast in. If it doesn't go quite in all the way that is fine, it will eventually.<br>
6) Re-install the holding nut. <br>
That's all it takes. You can now enjoy your radio again!

Electric antenna does not stop running after car turned off and key removed


The plastic mast that runs inside of the metal mast has snapped & its trying to reel it in. You have two solutions to this. First disconect the plug to the antena or pull the fuse or Relay. GM sells a replacement part for this, its a small metal shaft conectes to a plastic tail. Its not that hard to do but it takes patience. The mechanism housing is riveted together so you have to drill out the rivets, replace the plastic ribbon & replace the rivets with srews & nuts. Or if you preffer, You can get a whole new antena but they are a bit pricey unless you find a Universal aftermarket unit that fits...

Does the antenae go down or come off so I can go through a car wash? Or will it be OK?


You can unscrew the mast from the mount. The mount is right on top of the fender. http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs/234605996-Car-antenna-mast-wholesalers.html
That site shows the antenna mast, and the lower left portion of the picture shows the end that screws into the antenna mount.

THE ELECTRIC AERIAL ON MY 2003 VOLVO S40 STICKS IN THE DOWN POSITION. THE MOTOR IS TRYING TO RAISE IT BUT FAILS.


the antenna mast has a nylon cable attached to the end of it which goes into the electric motor that raises it and lowers the mast. This cable has snapped apart causing this problem. A new mast or antenna will be needed to repair this back to working condition

Antenna mast broken


    Give these instructions a shot. Might be too generic but might be enough to get you going. Removing Original Antenna
  1. Step 1 Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Step 2 Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Step 3 Gain access to the underside of the area where the antenna is located.
  4. Step 4 Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Step 5 Remove the mast.
  6. Step 6 Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Step 7 Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Step 8 Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Step 9 Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Step 10 Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.
    Installing the New Power Antenna
  11. Step 1 Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  12. Step 2 Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  13. Step 3 Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable. (On some General Motors and Ford cars you may need an adapter to mate the 2 cables together. Car audio retail stores sell such an adapter.)
  14. Step 4 Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  15. Step 5 Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  16. Step 6 Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  17. Step 7 Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  18. Step 8 Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  19. Step 9 Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  20. Step 10 Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  21. Step 11 Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  22. Step 12 Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  23. Step 13 Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  24. Step 14 Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

Is there an easy fix to screw in antenna snapped of in mount


You can drill out the snapped-off screw and re-tap the hole. Then just put in a new (and slightly larger) screw. You will probably need a larger screw if you drill it out past the existing threaded hole. If you're lucky, you can sometimes just push a screwdriver against the edge of the screw and rotate the screw out that way until you can grip it with pliers and unscrew it. Then just put in a new screw.
