i can't say how easy it would be for your application, my antenna was originaly a "fixed" type, yours is power.


for mine you unscrew stock one and put the new one on...it comes with different screws to choose from, i used a tiny bit of silicone to thread it in so that hopefully somebody won't try and swipe it, but if someone does i guess it's no big deal (5 dollhairs)

I dont mean to thread jack, but i have a power antenna right now that pretty much doesn't work and I hate using the radio. Can I just unplug the motor and take it out then just get one of these ebay ones to cover the hole?

best thing to do is buy a used manual aerial base and swap that with you power one. Then you should be able to screw universal aerials straight in.

Or just unplug the power on the aerial motor when its retracting like i've done. Bit of a loss in signal but its no where near as long :)

mine is like this as well. it looks just like the one on babyjesus car cept it says "streettune" in smaller letters

i hate the radio with a passion so that was one of the first mods i did to the car. super cheap and easy, although i had to hack up my old antenna mount and make my own.

essentiallyi have the same as you in my 00.. its really not hard.. just look at the bolts and figure it out. it takes all of 5 to 10 minutes to get all the crap outta there in the trunk..

I need to get one of these, my power antenna just makes noises when I turn the car on and off. Just a whirring, no antenna.
