My WRT54GX2 has suffered from one of the antennas being pulled out. The only way to replace it is to open the case - I cannot find anywhere that the case separates. Help please

--has this effected your internet services --aren't you able to access the wireless --if it is working fine then you dont have get it opened --because it has a security seal on it --and if the router is in warranty I would not recommend you to open it --because the screw to open the router is under this label.

How do I open the case on a Radio Shack Presidian boombox cat number 14-108

check for a tab ( bit of paper)with a name , number or writing on it as manufacturers use it over a screw to determine if the unit has been interfered with when a warranty claim has been made
pressing in the center of any paper stuck to the back may reveal a hole underneath in which will be the last screw

Need to replace radio antenna on a 99 isuzu rodeo

I just replaced the antenna on our 02 rodeo. No need to remove radio or anything in dash. This is how I did it.
First you will need access to back of fender, enough room for your hand. Open hood and remove 3 bolts running along top of fender, open passenger door and remove top bolt holding fender. Gently pry top of fender away from vehicle. Place object in gap to hold fender ( I used the head of a rubber mallet). Reach inside fender and disconnect old antenna, follow cable through wall into passenger compartment. Gently pull cable from behind carpet and unplug old antenna from coupler. Connect new antenna to fender ( replacement antenna I ordered was slightly smaller than opening so I had to add washer). Run new antenna cable through wall and plug into coupler. Re-attach fender

How do I open up case to put antenna cover back on?

Open the battery cover by pulling down. Undo 2 T8 screws holding the top cover on. if you are using the belt clip it's a bit of a pain to remove - a screwdriver in the top pulling up may work - I ended up getting it half way out, then hacksawing off the rest. Then the back cover should unclip. Good luck, inside it's a pretty nice well built radio, except the antenna plastic is a bit weak, and it uses batteries a bit fast.

I forgot my password to access the wireless

Looking at the base with antennas at the top there is a reset button bottom left that you can press the something sharp like a pencil, hold this button in for at least 5 seconds to reset the router.

Poor reception. Changed the radio with another of the same model. Reception is still poor. Must be an antenna problem. How do I go about replacing the antenna and coax?

1. Disconnect negative side of battery.
2. Wait at least 2-minutes to de-energize the airbag system
3. Remove the glove box from the dash.
4. There will be a coax cable towards the top of the opening. Disconnect the antenna cable lead.
5. Remove the right kick trim panel. There should be no screws just clips.
6. Loosen the rubber grommet insulator from the door hinge area. This is a rubber accordian style guard for wires located between the "A" pillar and the door.
7. Pull the antenna cable out of the dash area to the hinge area.
8. Jack up the front right of the vehicle. Support with Jack Stands. Do not use only the Jack! Use the jack as a back-up in case of Jack Stand failure.
9. Remove the right front tire.
10. Remove the right front wheel housing splash shield. There should be 3-push type retainers and one 10 mm bolt below the bumper.
11. Slide the plastic cover (on the base) up on the antenna mast.
12. Use a open end wrench to unscrew the antenna mast at the base and remove the antenna mast.
13. Remove the plastic cap from the base nut on the base and remove the base nut.
14. From underneath the fender: pull down the antenna base. And pull the cable towards you - out from the door hinge area into the fender area.
Good Luck! Installation is reverse of above.
If this helped or you need clarification or additional help: let me know at

Power antenna. 1986 olds delta 88

Obviously if fuse panel has a power antennae fuse, simply pull it, otherwise you may have to get to connector at motor by removing part or all of sheild in wheel well to access it in some cases. Only other option would be to remove radio from dash & disconnect antennae power wire from radio. Don't forget you want it up before disconnecting if you can.

The antenna goes up/ dowm really slow and then continues to click when it is all the way down

when the antenna winds all the way up grab it and try and pull it up as far as you can get a bit of oil/grease or lubricant and run it along the antenna to help it run smoothly, this wont fix your problem but it will reduce the amount of clicks it does and may help realign the antenna as the clicks are the motor still trying to pull it down because it thinks its still up. the antennas do this because they may have a kink or bend in it, most cases you need to replace the antenna, can get one for under $50 get a generic one as its cheaper and does the same thing.
