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?

It sounds like the mast cable in the power unit is broken or disengaged. This cable pushes and pulls up and down the mast. You can buy the cable separate from Toyota.

The power antennea unit is located in the rear wheel tub . you should be able to see the unit once you pull back the fabric you will just need metric hand tools.

Don't know what you mean by fabric? The antenna is located behind the rear tire molding. By removing the rear tire and then the black liner in the wheel well you can gain full access the the antenna. I removed the power antenna and dis-assembled the housing to remove the broken plastic extender for the antenna mast. I then installed the new mast. It now works like new.

Water in the storage area behind the seats in my 2003 MR2 Spyder. Has convertible. I believe the drains might be plugged but don't know where the drains to check!
