2007 antenna issue

I bought a shorty antenna and when trying to take the stock antenna off it wont budge. Used plyers and tried both turning and pulling it. Anyone else have this issue?

Re: 2007 antenna issue

There's a metal ring on it not sure if its part of antenna or not. It has 3 grooves on it. Its same color as antenna that silver. Tried turning that too. Nothing moves

Re: 2007 antenna issue

Just did this on my 05 WK. The metal part with the groves was a nut on mine that I had to add a little WD40 to and then use expandable plyers and unscrew it, like any nut. I used a thin rag between the jaws of the plyers and the surface of the nut and covered the surrounding area with a clean rag so as to not get any of the WD40 on the paint. This is only how I did it and I am not sure if the 07 model has a different attachment method but I doubt it. Good luck!

Re: 2007 antenna issue

you were both right. i think it had red loctite on it, and wd40 and locking plyers for 5 mins did the trick. finally got rid of that flopping thing and put on the shorty

Re: 2007 antenna issue

red loctite is the strong stuff. makes sense though. its a factory job. they dont want things to come off that they put on....and thats why we mod. lol.

Re: 2007 antenna issue

lol well that stuff was effective. but not enough for someone with WD-40 and a lot of time on his hands wanting to mod!
