Default 1996 Camry LE antenna problem

Have power antenna.
Dang thing aint working now.. and too expensive to replace at this time..

Is it possible to just disconnect the mast and manually put the danged
antenna up.

In fact, the only time i'd have it down would be to go thru car wash..

what do you think? can this be done..

cheers

don

Don:
First, you might have just to replace the antenna mast, and not the whole antenna.

I bought a mast about 1 year ago for $23.00 US dollars at www.ebay.com

If you just want to disconnect the antenna for now, it is easy; you just have to remove the side cover inside the trunk [the one covering the antenna], and unplug the power wire from the antenna [I think it has 2 wires connected to it].

Depending on where you live, sometimes it is not needed to have the mast up; however, if the mast is broken from the inside, it might not be possibe to leave it up all the time.

You can buy an aftermarket antenna for 50 bucks or less and it comes
with enough instructions that only a 14 yr old can understand
it.............................If you have any mechanical skils you
can figure it out and install your own.

That is , if you can't figure out an alternative.

I ordered a complete new one for my Camry for around $30 from

http://www.antennamastsrus.com/

I had to drill a hole and dink around with the wires a little bit to make it
work, but not hard. The company was quick to answer my questions and very
helpful.

Was the replacement a Power antenna or a mast? I'm curious why an
additional hole was necessary, where did you have to drill?

Thanks!

Huang, I ordered an entire power antenna assembly. Perhaps I didn't
understand the installation, but I had to drill a hole in the mounting
bracket to screw the antenna to the bracket. The antenna I received was not
a 100% identical match to the original Toyota one, but it was not a big deal
to match everything up. The company actually called me and talked me
through the tricky parts. I think if I had to do it over again though, I
might have just tried ordering the mast - I think thats all that was broken.
Good luck, Jess
