Default bent power antenna mast

the mast to my power antenna is bent. now i know how to replace the motor for it but when i pull the motor out as instructed, will the mast come inside the trunk as well? and if so with the new antenna, i'll have to just push it back up through the same hole?

Yes, the mast (even partially extended) will come out through the hole into the trunk. New one will go in the same way (only in reverse... ).

Is the 93 different from the 94?

The 94 book procedure is to remove the tip and that insulator on top of the deck (12-point socket). Then the two outer sections of the mast come out up over the middle rod.

The central rod is on the drive cable and pulls down into the trunk as you remove the motor.

On installation, the central rod is fed up through the trunk hole, and the assembly is poked up high enough so that the two mast sections can be slid over the rod and down into the contact tube. Then attach the drive works in the trunk; add insulator and tip from above.

i did it that way.... not sure how easy it is to put the mast on first and push it out from the trunk without bending.
