Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT the retractable antenna will not retract. The motor that works the antenna motion seems to be working fine,  as I have opened the trunk and watched the motor work, but the antenna stays in the up position. Would anyone know what part I would need to fix it?

One of mine was staying up. I took some wd 40 sprayed on a rag and wiped the antenna down with it. I then give it a little push down and it has worked ever since. Now mine was a collapsible antenna and not a solid shaft one.

If that doesn't work, you will need to replace the antenna mast itself. You'll have to remove the motor assembly from the trunk and the mast and install a new one. Here is how it's done....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvqJRR7iBLE
