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.
