I purchased a replacement antenna for my LG VX5300 (the antenna is part number snmf0022401). However, the antenna came in a plastic bag with no instructions on how to remove the old, broken antenna and install the new one. I checked LG's website, but could find no self-service instructions, let alone any hints on how to replace the antenna. Do you know where I can find such instructions?
It is pretty simple to replace. You have to unscrew the back of the phone and remove/replace the screw that holds the antenna and the connector in place. Then screw the back of the phone back on. I don't know where you order the part, but if you find out let me knw since I need another antenna.
Thought I would ask if anyone has figured out how to replace the antenna on the vx-5300? Mine broke and I would like to replace it. Also, where did you get the part number for the antenna and where did you buy it? Thanks.

The best thing I can recommend is shop around on Ebay and hopefully find a basketcase Quest or Quest 2 with the antenna intact. Swapping the antennas is fairly easy. Lay the GPS display side down and remove the two endcap screws on the right side. Pull the old antenna out and to the right and replace it with the replacement antenna. Another option you may try is purchasing an external patch type antenna that can mount remotely and plugs into the back of your Quest GPS. Garmin WILL NOT sell you a replacement antenna. They want you to send it to them for repair and will charge you $100+.
Unfortunately, your description of the problem means that your radio must be taken apart to be fixed. Replacement antennas can be found purchased. It would require installing the new antenna and most likely soldering it to the broken wire. Do you have a picture?
its held in by the bracket on the botom of it and also the chrome nut arount the top of it... remove the nut from the top and the bolts from the base support bracket and then remove the antenna and power wires.. when installing replacement antenna secure the top nut first. then bolt base and reconnect antenna wire and power plug
The Wilson adapter damaged your internal antenna. I talked to Wilson today to get a part number to buy the adapter and the told me they did not recommend using it as it has damaged a number of phones. They also said that LG might have corrected the problem in the newest production models.
There is no way to tighten it. You say you've had it for about a year. If that means you've had it less than a year and it's under warranty, take it to your provider for a repair or replacement before the year is up. I'm sorry this is probably not the answer you wanted to hear.
