I removed the entire power antenna assembly and could not find any way possible to separate the mast from the motor assembly. Odd, since Mitsubishi sold me an antenna mast.
The antenna mast screws into the antenna mount on the fender. Unscrew the old one and crew in the new one. If you need to replace the entire antenna mount, you will need a new antenna mount assembly with antenna cable.
the Antenna mast is broke where the plastic connects to the crome-or soe where on the plastic drive where the motor winds up the drive.SOME come with just the new MAST & not the whole anrenna assembly.. 1992 & 1993 DeVilles cannot replace just the mast. The entire mast and motor assembly must be replaced. If you can find a used antenna with a bad motor and good mast you can take it apart and place the used mast into the good antenna motor assembly. If you elect to purchase one check on the discount price from a dealer as most salvage yards want as much for a used one as the discount price from a dealer. mine had striped gears i replaced with uinversal one works great now easy to do
You can purchase an antenna mast at most auto shops like Auto Parts or Auto Zone. Many gas stations or garages will also carry the antenna mast for your car.
Remove the luggage compartment side trim panel if the entire antenna assembly has to be replaced.With the antenna in the down position, remove the antenna mast nut. Do NOT pull the antenna mast up by hand. With the ignition key in the ON position, turn the radio ON to raise the antenna out of the motor.
Go to www.antennamastsrus.com They have a replacement mast for the power antenna for $14.95 + shipping.
If the antenna does not motor in and out, it can be the antenna mast OR the motor assembly. Usually you can hear the motor moving and if so, it may be ok. It is probably a broken or worn out or badly installed antenna cable. The antenna mast has a nylon sprocket cable that winds in the motor assembly and that sometimes break or wears out so you need to replace the integrated antenna mast-nylon cable assembly. To replace the antenna mast or to reinstall the mast, you must first remove the nut on top of the antenna by using needle nose pliers. Turn the radio on while pulling on the antenna, it should come off easily and the nylon cable protrudes at the bottom, pull on it and you should see about 1-2 feet of cable. If the cable is ok and not broken or worn out, perhaps it was badly installed (or it is actually broken and a piece of it is in the motor spool). The sprockets need to point in a particular direction (try front or side) to work properly. Reinstall and check for proper operation. To reinstall, turn the radio off and feed into the hole while the motor is winding, it should be caught and reeled right in. If problems continue, you need to replace the mast or perhaps the nylon cable is broken inside the spool in the motor assembly The mast is relatively cheap online and can be installed as described above. To get to the motor assembly you need to access it from the fender. Remove the cover of the wheel well (that prevents mud/water from entering the engine compartment) and the motor assembly will be accessible. Remove one screw to drop the assembly. If you need to change the assembly, this is it. If you are to change the antenna mast and there is some broken cable inside, continue by removing the plastic cover to uncover the assembly. There is a black plastic cover on top that you must then remove to access the wheel that winds the antenna nylon cable. Now you can remove the broken cable. http://www.antennamastsrus.com/Instructions%20Mast.htm
If there isn't an external mast, it is part of the rear window defroster.
You can get a new mast for the antenna from any Hyundai dealer. This happens a lot and they usually stock them. If you can get all of the old mast out, it's a rather simple procedure, although it can be tricky to get the antenna to grab the new mast. 1. Remove the nut holding the mast into the antenna (12mm I think). 2. Turn the radio on and pull the antenna mast out. There should be a round disc and a ball on the bottom. If not, you'll need to remove the antenna assembly and take the rest of the pieces out of the antenna. If the disc and ball are present, continue with step 3. 3. Push the plastic of the new antenna mast down into the antenna as far as possible. 4. Have an assistant turn off the radio while you're pushing the plastic into the antenna. 5. If the antenna does not grab onto the mast, return to step 2. Otherwise, continue with step 6. 6. Install and tighten the mast nut. 7. Turn the radio on. 8. Turn the radio off. Your mast should now be properly seated. 9.there is a plastic washer also inside that you will have to force the mast thru to get it the set in the motor ! if you cann't push thru , next step take out motor and remove the tube for antenna, you find in sitting inside make sure connect it back the same it is stting , after that replace in car, have someone turn and off radio,job done
The antenna assembly is accessed from the inside of the trunk by removing the panels. If you just want to replace the mast try this link.How_do_you_replace_an_antenna_on_a_mercedes_300EHope this helps.
By mounting it on an antenna mast with the appropriate attachment bracket.
Open the trunk, remove the plastic buttons that hold the carpeting in place on the passenger side, unscrew the trim ring that is around the mast on the outside of the car, there are 2 bolts inside the trunk that you have to remove and an electrical plug to remove, then unplug the antenna cable and the whole assembly can be replaced
To remove the antenna and cable # Lower the glove box and disconnect the antenna cable connection # Remove the antenna mast # Loosen the right front wheel and inner fender splash shield # Remove the antenna base mounting bolt and detach the grommet and cable from the body,then lower the assembly from the front wheel opening
A radar mast is a high platform to mount a radar antenna such as the radar has an unobstructed view.
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 some cars, the mast with the drive strip alone can be replaced, on others, you have to replace the entire mast / motor assembly.
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.
The antenna mast is stripped.
unlimited most radio supply outfits will provide an antenna mast to 78 inches, but you can get your machine shop to make a longer mast for a few $$$ extra
This is one of the most frustrating jobs to do...The old one basically pulls out, but the new one you need 2 people to do it. 1. Remove the nut holding the mast into the antenna (12mm I think). 2. Turn the radio on and pull the antenna mast out. There should be a round disc and a ball on the bottom. If not, you'll need to remove the antenna assembly and take the rest of the pieces out of the antenna. If the disc and ball are present, continue with step 3. 3. Push the plastic of the new antenna mast down into the antenna as far as possible. 4. Have an assistant turn off the radio while you're pushing the plastic into the antenna. 5. If the antenna does not grab onto the mast, return to step 2. Otherwise, continue with step 6. 6. Install and tighten the mast nut. 7. Turn the radio on. 8. Turn the radio off. Your mast should now be properly seated. If this does not work, sometimes the motor is bad and it will not grab...I've had to take out the motor to get one in before...REMEMBER...this is a very frustrating job, and it would almost be worth it to have Hyundai install it for you...
if you mean the Ariel its in the boot and you have to remove the black case on your rear light inside the boot to be able to pull the carpet back and the mast and motor sits there.thats if this is what you meant.
The mast mounted amplifier will amplify only what is coming out of the antenna, while a set located amplifier will also amplify any noise that was induced in the lines between the mast and the set.
The antenna mast screws into the antenna mount on the fender. Unscrew the old one and crew in the new one. If you need to replace the entire antenna mount, you will need a new antenna mount assembly with antenna cable. Unscrew the antenna and then unscrew the antenna mount nut. Unfasten the mud guard in the wheel well enough to pull it aside and reach up to the antennae. Remove the kick panel to find where the cable enters the jeep.
Does the antenna motor run when you turn the radio on or off?If no, then the entire antenna assembly likely needs to be replaced.If the motor does run, the nylon 'teeth' on the mast are likely stripped or broken.Replacing the antenna mast (that's a good search term), is an easy task, and can often be done from outside the car.I found one on-line for less than $20 - and easily replaced it with minimal tools and effort in 10 minutes.
Begin by removing the wiring harness from your Volvo antenna. Remove the antenna retaining nuts. The antenna will come off. Reverse the process to install your new antenna.
According to the instructions at this link, it's really easy: http://www.drivewire.com/part/audio-video/power-antenna-mast/ "To remove the mast, simply removes the outer gland nut that is at the base of the mast, then turn on the radio, and the mast cable will extract itself. To install the new antenna, push the new nylon cable down thru the antenna assembly hole until it stops. Then go into the car and turn the radio off. You will hear the antenna motor and you should see the antenna recoil into the motor. Once the motor has stopped, put the metal part of the antenna mast into the motor assembly and reinstall the land nut on the top of the antenna." But, if it doesn't go that easily, here are the more detailed instructions. The link above gives you a good general idea of what's invovled, and the link below gives you the nitty gritty for actually getting it done when all doesn't go 100% like the recipe: http://forums.nicoclub.com/zerothread/187719 This link has "what to do if" instructinos and photos too. The My Chiltons book made it look way too difficult to want to try. But in talking with my local Nissan dealer mechanic, these internet links describe the job really well.
