Hello -

Your antenna is located in the right side of luggage compartment. It is probably located behind the panels.

Hello James

Thanks for getting back with me.

I apologize that you feel your answer was inadequate. Not all items on removal or replacement are listed in the manuals. This is one. Last week a person needed the directions on an alternator removal for a 1990 Honda Prelude and another, a 1983 Mercedes Benz 300sd front seat removal. Again, no directions. Many times thermostat replacements, belt replacements etc are not listed. It is extremely frustrating.

Sometimes this is because the manufactures do not release this information to the companies that develop the manuals and it states so.

Sometimes it is because they feel the steps are too basic and with a certain level of mechanical knowledge a person would be able to fix the item. If I remember correctly one of the manuals actually lists the suggested skill level of the task.

Some members have manuals and their manuals don't have what we have and we do our best to add to what they have.

Do we agree with that. Of course not. We would like to see every step especially with pics listed and available to all customers of all the tasks. But that isn't possible and beyond our control.

What we can do to assist our customers and many times do is they send pics and we offer ideas/suggestions based off of what they see and together solve the problem.

Again, I apologize that you feel your answer was inadequate but I hope you see, that is beyond our capability with the manuals we have.

Again, most likely your antenna is located behind the false panels in the trunk as you know. Once you remove those you should be able to see the antenna motor and how it is secured and electrically connected. The part on the fender most likely unscrews to all that part of the antenna to drop freely into the trunk once you unbolt the motor.
