My daughter took her car through a car wash without removing her antenna on accident. The antenna works fine. The bezel was pulled out of the hole where it attaches to the car. It's the part of the lip that's at the top of the bezel. I'm trying to figure out what to use to push it back in without damaging the car in any way. Can you advise what type of tool I should use? I don't want to do anything complicated from inside the trunk, just push it in from the outside, it's out maybe 1/4 to 1/2". Thanks.

Is this a fixed antenna like the picture? The #1 piece is what your talking about? You may have to install that from inside the trunk because it is tapered. Usually the trunk linner is just a piece of carpet with some keepers.

You may need to remove antenna to install that piece? My biggest problem is I can't see anything from here.

If the bezel pulled out than you will have to go into the trunk, take the antenna out and use a flat piece of wood from where the hols is and gently tap the outside to make the hole flat again. The wood on the inside just makes it so it will hammer flat and not bend in. Then when the hole is flat reassemble the antenna and install.
