replacing a power antenna

Asked by Dec 11, 2011 at 10:47 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does anyone know the procedure for replacing a power antenna on a 1987 Caprice?

1 Answer


You have to twist off the base of the antenna, after doing that, the antenna should just come right off, but there's a wire attached to the bottom of it and if you lose that end of the wire, your gonna end up having to fish out the wire... which isn't fun.
