How can I open the weather-sealed balun junction box for a Hills QXF343HD Antenna .
The balun connection is sealed in plastic box which also houses a symmetrical bipole. The cable end pushes into a screw-in connector which attaches to a hollow threaded bolt running into the balun box. the insides seem to have come loose hence my desire to get inside.

Have you paid the phone bill? Are you supposed to have phone service?
Providing that you have a contract with the phone company and it's paid up, take a hardwire telephone out to the grey junction box on the outside of the house. Open the junction box and plug your phone into one of the two phone jacks inside, Try the phone. If you get no dial tone, try the other phone jack.
If you get no dial tone from either phone jack, borrow a hardwire telephone from a neighbor and try both jacks again with the borrowed telephone.
If no dial tone with your phone or your neighbor's phone, then the problem is on the phone company's side of that junction box.
If your neighbor's phone works but yours doesn't, the problem is your phones - lightening strike, maybe?
If your phone works in the junction box but not inside the house, then the wiring from the junction box to your house jacks has a bad connection somewhere. Someone - you or someone else - will have the arduous task of tracking down where that bad connection is.
no, the heat means there is a short with your antenna connection u need to check the antenna and its cable. u need to replace the cable and ensure the antenna has a balun if its a closed dipole or loop antenna
First, you'll want to make sure that her antenna has a coaxial cable (one of the thick round ones) coming from the antenna. Some older ones have a flat piece of plastic with two wires sticking out. These are less efficient, but if you have one, use a balun (a vhf-uhf matching transformer) to change to coax. You can google "balun" if you don't know what one looks like.
Next, you'll need a digital converter box (if you don't have one already). Connect one end of the coax cable to the antenna (or balun) and the other to the jack on the converter box labeled "ant. in." Finally, using another coax cable, connect one end to the jack on the converter box labeled "to tv" and the other end to the jack on the TV labeled "ant. in." Finally, depending on your converter box, you will probably need to "scan " for tv channels. Follow the setup instructions with the converter box to do this. If you don't have the instructions, try googling the converter box company and model number to find the users manual.
I hope this helps, and good luck!
No, you don't have to pull the whole dash board but you have to pull a few panels....here is the steps on how to get to it and remove and replace it:
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Drain the cooling system and disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes. Plug the hoses and the heater core tubes to prevent coolant leakage.
NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
Remove the 3 nuts located below the windshield wiper motor attaching the left end of the plenum to the dash panel. Remove the 1 nut retaining the upper left corner of the evaporator case to the dash panel.

Remove the 3 glove compartment hinge screws, disconnect the check arms and remove the glove compartment.
Loosen the right door sill plate and remove the right side cowl trim panel.
Remove the bolt attaching the lower right end of the instrument panel to the side cowl.
Remove the instrument panel pad as follows:
Remove the 2 screws attaching the pad to the instrument panel at each defroster opening. Be careful not to drop the screws into the defroster openings.
Remove the one screw attaching each outboard end of the pad to the instrument panel.
On Crown Victoria, remove one pad attaching screw near the upper right corner of the glove compartment door.
Remove the 5 screws attaching the lower edge of the pad to the instrument panel. Pull the instrument panel pad rearward and remove it from the vehicle.
On 1990-98 vehicles:
Remove all instrument panel mounting screws and pull the instrument panel back as far as it will go without disconnecting any wiring harnesses.
Make sure the nuts attaching the instrument panel braces to the dash panel are removed.
Loosen the right door sill plate and remove the right side cowl trim panel.
If equipped with manual air conditioning, disengage the temperature control cable housing from the bracket on top of the plenum. Disconnect the cable from the temperature blend door crank arm.
If equipped with Automatic Temperature Control (ATC), proceed as follows:
On 1989 vehicles, disconnect the temperature control cable from the ATC sensor.
Detach the vacuum harness line connector from the ATC sensor harness and detach the electrical connector from the ATC servo connector.
On 1990-98 vehicles, remove the cross body brace and disconnect the wiring harness from the temperature blend door actuator. Detach the ATC sensor tube from the evaporator case connector.
Detach the vacuum jumper harness at the multiple vacuum connector near the floor air distribution duct.
Disconnect the white vacuum hose from the outside-recirculating door vacuum motor.

wow. just did this one today. all i can say is have patience. you just have to take the dash completly apart top to bottom. you have to lower your steering colume to. you dont have to take the dash out of the car when you get it off enough on the passanger side just tie it up to the handle at the roof and you got access to the black box on the passanger side. you have to go under the hood and remove two bolts and two hoses to release the black box so you can get the heater core out. you also dont want to forget to disconnect the battery and drain your radiator. I watched my husban do this and i dont know how else to explain this or give better detail i hope i helped.
