You have removed the radio from your 1995 Explorer Limited and cannot find an antenna connection and want to know how does the antenna signal gets to the radio?

From the factory, the "radio" in the dash actually serves as a remote. The "brain" of it is in the rear quarter panel with the factory subwoofer. This is where the antenna plugs into. When I replaced mine, I had to buy an extension and run it up to the dash. Also, I had to buy an adapter to run the speaker wires up to the dash as well. It sucks, I know.

remove the nut at the base of the antenna. Slide off the grommet. The antenna will drop os hold on the the antenna as you remove the nut and grommet. Once this is removed. You will see how to remove the antenna unit.

A wireless adapter that uses a universal serial bus (USB) connection gives a business the flexibility to make any computer or laptop a part of the wireless network. A wireless USB network adapter relies on a limited amount of power when it is attached to a laptop or other device. This can sometimes restrict the range of the adapter. One way to extend the range is to change the antenna on the unit. A wireless USB network adapter uses some type of antenna to send and receive signals. This antenna can often be removed and replaced from the unit. The most common type of antenna on a wireless USB network adapter is an omnidirectional antenna that receives signals in all directions. A much stronger connection can be maintained across a longer distance with a directional antenna that focuses on signals coming from a specific location. These antennas are inexpensive and very effective in an office environment. Unfortunately, this will not work with a wireless USB network adapter that contains an integrated fractal antenna that cannot be replaced.

Yes there is. The position of the antenna is different on every phone. Like the Iphone it is on the outer side of the phone if placed to your ear. If you removed the casing on a blackberry you will see a gold antenna . If you remember the old cell phones with the pull out antenna, all it is, is an internal antenna instead. Hope that helped!

There are two panels in the trunk that must be removed to gain access to the power antenna. The first is on the driver's side. It covers the rear taillight electrical plugs. After this one is removed, the large panel on the driver's side of the trunk needs to be removed. This is a bit of a wrestling match, and you will have to bend/manipulate the shape of this panel a bit when removing it, but it does come out. With these removed, you can see where the antenna and motor is mounted to a small bracket, including the two connections to it- 1) Antenna cable, 2) Power lead for antenna motor. Once this bracket is removed, there is an additional nut which secures the antenna to the actual body of the car. Remove this nut, and you should now be able to slide the antenna out. When I replace them, I generally push the antenna assembly up, and lift it out of the rear fender while standing outside, instead of trying to remove it from within the trunk. You can save a considerable amount of money by replacing this antenna with a manually adjustable antenna from a place like NAPA, PEP Boys, etc. The motorized antennas on these Accords were notorious for giving trouble. If you decide to go with a manual antenna, remember to put it down when you go through an automatic car wash!!

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.
