Re: Antenna replacement HELP!

There is a special tool for it I believe. At least for the mount at the fender....I know for the XJ and WJ, it took a special goofy tool that I had to order and over-pay for.

Re: Antenna replacement HELP!

you need to get inside the fender and hold the wire......

you cant just magically remove it form the top.

but no special tool is needed except for a brain

Re: Antenna replacement HELP!

Thanks Rob, but this not the problem. My problem is on the other end. Where is the cable connects to and if the plug is actually reachable by hand. I know it is somewhere behind the firewall.

Re: Antenna replacement HELP!

I thought you were talking about the mount on the fender itself...where you DO need a special tool. I just double checked the wife's WK and my WJ...I'm not making this crap up. Here's what I'm talking about:

Re: Antenna replacement HELP!

Other than a way for someone to make money, it has 3 prongs that fit in the 3 recesses on the antenna base. You slide it on, then turn it with a wrench. That allows you to remove the chrome "nut" that holds the antenna mast to the fender.

Re: Antenna replacement HELP!

im confused fabs.


you are looking for the end that goes to the radio/nav?


if you dropped the radio one I would go inside passenger side under glove box remove all that trim and you should see it going from fender mount inside and under the dash. then it should go behind glove box and up to radio area.







or the fender end?
