How do you fix or replace a power antenna for a Mazda tribute?
How do you remove the power antenna motor and antenna from a 1998 4Runner Once this is done is it possible to install a euro style antenna?
the power antenna is located on right front. I jacked my car, and removed the right front wheel. Then there are some small screws which are keep the inner fender plastic. unscrew them. You can reach with your hand the power antenna. Unplug the power wire, and the antenna wire, and unscrew those small (8mm) screws which are holding the antenna in its bracket.
You would need to get a tool to remove the notched chrome piece that holds the antenna mast, or carefully use pliers to unscrew it out. After you remove that, the antenna itself is held by a 10mm bolt. to get to it you'll need to open up the trunk lining near the antenna location and remove that bolt. Then, pull the antenna far enough to disconnect the antenna wire and power. Assuming the antenna…
There are a lot of aftermarket antenna masts that you can get to fit your 4 runner and if you do decide to go with a fixed mast just make sure that you make sure that the wiring harness at the mast doesn't ground out on any metal. Other than that there is no problem with replacing it with a fixed mast antenna.
To access the power antenna you have to remove the storage container next the spare tire. then remove the screws holding the plastic piece in place. Pry back the plastic trim and you will see the antenna behind it. On the outside there is a cross shaped piece holding the antenna in place. find something such as pliers to unscrew it (counter-clockwise). the antenna will fall out as a complete unit.
I am also trying to change my antenna on a Montero Limited 02 and found a antenna on EBAY but you have to replace everything. BUT a Better Idea is the one I found on WWW.CARSTEREOHELP.COM On this site, they say it is possible to change out the antenna whip only. This is the weekend, but I plan to pursue this option on Monday. I'll use my $30.00 antenna on some other car! Geo Here…

1989 cutslas and the power antenna motor keeps running and the antenna is stuck in the up position What do you do?
If your antenna is dead you'll need to replace it!'' check the connections first to make sure you are getting power you'll have to have the car running and the radio on! there is not a fuse for the antenna - if you need a replacement buy one from checkers or any other auto-parts store is a lot cheaper than the dealer..
That's easy, I did the same job to my 90 accord. First buy a fixed antenna, I went to radio shack, something like $12, instead of $200+ for the power antenna from Honda.. In the trunk, on the side of the antenna, pull back the trunk liner but be careful not to break an clips. once the trunk liner is out of the way, you'll see what tools you'll need, and what nuts to turn…
the drive cord could also be broken inside the drum that holds the drive cord when the antenna is down. If that is the case, you will have to remove the cover next to the motor and remove the broken piece. I believe you can simply replace the antenna mast; eBay has one but it is for a power antenna that mounts on the passenger side. that means that the drive cord is stripped, on…
Is it possible to change to a power radio antenna on a 1998 Mazda 626 that was not originally equipped that way?
You should be able to. If you buy a semi-automatic power antenna you will get a small under dash switch in the kit that will raise and lower the antenna when you press it. If you buy a fully automatic, it will turn go up and down when you turn on the radio; however, there is more wiring involved and sometimes radio disassembly. Check with larger auto stores for brands like HARADA.
