Access through right side of trunk - remove panel and replace as complete unit
Remove the wiring harness from the bottom of your 1987 Buick Regal power antenna. Remove the power antenna retaining nuts. The power antenna will come off. Reverse the process to install the new power antenna.
You can access the antenna and motor by pulling out the trunk carpet lining, then once you have a new one just unplug the old one and stick the new one in ;)
unplug the electrical from the antenna. replace antenna.

In my 1989 century, its in the glovecompartment behind a small door with a hole in it. No 3 from top to the right. Problem with the antenna motor running after ignition cut? Hope you excuse my imperfect english. Ray Norway, Eu
I have the same problem on my Nissan Altima, it is the antenna motor. Replace it.
== == How do I get instructions on replacing a power antenna on a 2004 corvette convertible?
Turning on your radio will send power to the motor which is the base of the entire antenna. The motor turns a gear which is connected to a nylon strip with notches (mating gear) which is moved through a channel and is connected to the top of the antenna and pushes the antenna up.
With your radio in the On position, turn your ignition 1 click to engage the power antenna. Then gently pull out old antenna as it raises. Feed in new antenna while your assistant turns the radio to the Off position. the motor will naturally pull in the new antenna...or go to the carwash and convince them their mechanised mildew-removing mmaham are the guilty party, and they owe $35 for a new antenna.
sound like a wire problum or u need to replace tha power antanna unit
I have a 98 4runner limited and It has a power antenna, I recently replaced the mast for it and it's pretty easy to replace the antenna it self. not sure about the euro ,but I know that it's pretty easy to take off the motor (if you can get under the panel) and just replace it with a normal antenna
The power steering box is on the right side behind the motor close to the finder wall. Get a flash light and look behind the motor and don't try to reach it while the motor is hot.
I don't believe there is a relay. When you turn on the power to your radio the antenna should go up and down when you turn off the power. If the antenna is not doing just that, then the antenna motor is bad.
Either the battery has a dead cell and needs replacing or something is pulling power from the battery when the engine is off. I had a problem with my 1986 Cadillac DeVille where the power antenna was stuck and the motor would run all night trying to lower the antenna. To resolve the problem I just removed the fuse for the power antenna motor.
Remove left rear wheel plastic housing cover under the body you can then access the antenna motor.
If the antenna is in the up position, you have 2 options, replace the entire assembly, or unplug it. In the trunk under the antenna, you will find a set of 3 wires going into a relay. Unplug those, and the motor will turn off.
To Change the antenna, its best to remove the right front tire. Then remove the plastic wheel well cover and wella, the antenna can be easily replaced.
The antenna relay could be bad
95 % of the time the nylon cord that moves the antenna up and down gets stripped. The power antenna motor is going to cost about $200.00. The antenna mast is about $40.00 which comes as part of the nylon cord. The motor that drives the antenna must bestill working. The procedure to fix takes about 15 minutes. Remove the nut that secures the antenna and slowly pull the antenna out od the socket. Take the new antenna with the nylon leadand feed it into the socket hole. You can then secure the antenna in place with the holding nut.
Just unplug the power wire below the motor or the fuse in the fuse box..
The motor that raises and lowers the antenna is controlled by a wire which is connected to the power switch in the stock radio. The wire from the antenna itself has nothing to do with raising and lowering the antenna. Touch the wires that were connected to the stock radio to a hot wire and see if the antenna starts to move. If if does, hook that wire to the wire from the new radio which is supposed to control the antenna motor. If there is no such wire, connect the antenna motor wire to the Accessory circut. The antenna will go up whenever the key is turned on. Or, you can get fancy and install a switch for it.
IT IS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE MOTOR IN THE BACK.
remove the pass. finder linner and find plug to the motor and disconnect it
