Plupart après que marché antennes fonctionnent très bien et dans certaines situations mieux ensuite les originaux. Beaucoup disponibles sur ebay et amazon, à des prix raisonnables. Leur faire sont la partie la plus facile.

Pas si facile, en raison de leur emplacement d’installation. Il faut généralement enlever l’aile capot ou sur le côté. Certains ont brandi la hotte avec un bâton et supprimé la charnière se rendre à l’antenne

Depuis ce n’est pas OEM la lunette n’est peut-être pas aussi RAS que l’original. Le câblage peut être différent et prendra quelques tâtonnements pour faire fonctionner correctement.

Since this is not OEM bezel is perhaps not as flush as the original. The wiring may be different and will take some trial and error to make it work properly.

May I correct the first part?

There are lots of aftermarket power antenna kits out there.  Many come with several different bezels to accommodate different fender profiles.  For all of the trouble and labor associated with this job, I'd be tempted to try an under dash solution.  They make them although I have not tried one.

You have to remove the right side hood hinge and loosen the fender to get access to replace the power unit and it's a tough job.

Alas, Brian is correct-- the right fender needs to be removed to gain access.   Any chance that the original antenna is still fixable?   Perhaps a blow fuse and a bit of wd 40 on the mast?    Conge    James

I have replaced several in my 90 Brougham. Yes, it is rather difficult. Luckily, with a few scratches to hands moving the fender, I didn't have to take off the hinge.
If you can't find an original on EBAY, try salvage yards. There are several Cadillac ones across the country. A few to speak of are Cadillac International in NY, Cadillac King in California, and Cadillac Heaven in North Carolina.

The PO is located in France. Good luck to find a junk yard with that kind of car in this country!
