The Passat models use a roof-mounted antenna, which is threaded into an antenna base. To remove the antenna, rotate the antenna mast counterclockwise to remove.

To remove the antenna base;

Remove the rear trim as necessary to allow access via the rear portion of the headliner.
Disconnect the antenna lead and if amplified, the wiring.
Using a 22mm (7/8 inch) short open-end wrench, loosen and remove the base mounting nut, then remove the base and if installed, the seal.
Installation is in reverse order of removal.

Hope this helped. Thanks for using 2carpros. Com and thanks for the donation! It helps us help others!
