If it is stuck in the up position, push it down. Pull back the trunk liner, remove the jack case to do this. Unhook the electrical, including ground. Find the three or so mounting bolts, unbolt. Pull assembly down. Repostition black rubber grommet. Install new antenna.

only two bolts for the antenna. One at the bottom and one at the top left for the ground. The jack box has 3 to remove. If nothing has been changed, they are all 10mm sockets.

Last step: throw power antenna away and install manual antenna from dealer, about $20 total.

Enjoy better radio reception and a lot less hassle.

Get a power antenna out of a 99 for $20, get excellent reception, and years more service out of it.

Did that on both my 93 and 95.

Yeah, I'll second the "fixed mast antennas don't have mechanical parts that can fail, requiring replacement." -Anyone who has ever had a car with a power antenna that failed can tell you that not failing might be considered an advantage.

I second (third?) the fixed mast solution. I think KISS is a great maxim for cars. The less stuff that can break the better. But just my opinion.

My antenna while down at the car wash can't get ripped off.

Two sides to every cool feature.
