How do you replace the antenna on a 1995 Toyota Tacoma 4X4 you can get the antenna off and have it traced to the radio but can't figure out how to gain access to the back of the radio?

To access to mounting bolts of the antenna you need to undo a few of the fender liner screws and go in from there. The one piece anntenna wire has to go through a gromet in the cab wall. (a new antenna from Toyota should come with this gromet already) You'll need to remove the glove box (at least) to fish the new wire through the dash (use a few zip ties to secure it along the way). There's not alot of room to work behind the radio so ideally you'll want to remove the housing around your radio & heater controls so start at the bottom and work your way up removing any screws, bolts and or clips. Once the housing is off there are simply four screws to undo the radio. Re & re the old antenna wire with the new, test and put it all back.
