Default 1996 - Toyota Camry

Hi there,
I would like the antenna to be at a half-position instead of the full
height.
Whenever i power on the car, the antenna pulls itself back to full ht
position and goes back when i power down. Is there a way to keep it at
ONE POSITION?? Because of this movement, i guess
the antenna is getting damaged.

Any inputs?

A

=====================================
Not sure how your antenna is being damaged from normal operation.
The best idea is to wipe the length of the mast and spray the joints
with TriFlow regularly to keep it clean and operating smoothly.
There are plastic drive teeth which eventually break, so less
resistance helps a lot.
To keep the antenna at one height you would have to remove the carpet
in the trunk from the right side, (just pull out the plastic fasteners)
then disconnect the electrical plug, have someone turn on the radio and
then reconnect the wiring just long enough to get the antenna extended
half way.

Depending on the unit, you may not have to replace the entire thing.
You may be able to buy just the retractable antenna part. Much cheaper.
The plastic ages and eventually breaks. Typical.
