Power antenna repair
« on: June 18, 2017, 12:13:35 PM »
GM service manual says if the nylon cable in the power antenna Used from at least 1980 until at least the mid nineties was broken , the entire tube and mast must be replaced. Expensive and hard to find . this is not true. A company called antennas are us sells the smallest part of the mast with a new nylon cord for less than $25. Once the antenna is off the car, it's a simple 15 MIN job. The tip of the old antenna is unscrewed and the small mast and broken cord is pulled out from the bottom. The new one is than inserted and a new tip is screwed on. Install the cable into the spool with the antenna fully extended. Reassemble the unit and  connect the power plug to the antenna so it will retract and then you can install the antenna on the car
