Thanks for this! I was cleaning the snow off my tenant's car last Monday and snapped the antenna off her 06 Focus. I went to the local Stealership and ordered the parts and asked them what they would charge to put it on and was told 1 1/2 hours of labor at $89/hour! So, between parts and labor he quoted me about $200! I bought the base and the new antenna for a total of $45 and it took me 10 minutes after looking at this thread. Thanks again! You just saved me from getting ripped off by Thomas Ford in Beverly, MA!

Nice step by step instructions! Same thing just happened to me this morning, brushing snow off the roof. Must have been the cold temperature (-2F), snapped right off, LOL. I think there might have been some corrosion because I tried taking the antenna off the base earlier this fall and would not budge. I will probably use a little dab of anti-seize on the new parts. Oh, what happened to the pictures mentioned in the original post?

Can't see pics

Hi there,

I also can't see the pics and need to replace the antennas on my 2001 ZX3 and my 2003 ZX3 SVT Focus.

Will keep searching the forums.

Any help would be appreciated.

TY

Just the info I need - I just bought a Focus in which the antennae was snapped off. Didn't notice when I looked the car over (I have more important things to worry about than tunes), I'll be referring back to this when I get a new base/antenna!

Ah well, the written instructions should be enough - just need to get my hands on a new unit.

While looking for something else, ran into a couple of youtube videos. Looks pretty straight forward. Ordered the base and antennae and should be here in a couple of days, I'll see if I can keep my life from sukking

Ford charges like 35 bucks for that stupid antenna.

Base is 9 bucks. In stock at local dealerships. May be cheaper on the interwebs.

Easiest way is if you have a salvage yard local keep an eye out. Takes like 5 minutes. I've replaced 4 in the last 2 years on Focus I've had lol.

Ordered base and antenna (separate suppliers - less for both than Ford wants for antenna). Got the base in Friday and installed it today. Easy-peasy. Now just waiting for the antenna to be delivered and I'll be in business
