This was positively fantastic. Not only did you precisely list exactly what tools you'd need, but you listed the part number, and photographs of the step-by-step instructions. Because of you, I was able to replace my antenna within, literally, five minutes time...that's all it took. It was SO EASY to do. Without this thread, I wouldn't have had a clue how to do this and would've ended up taking it to a dealer and been charged a fortune in labor. Sending you virtual hugs for an awesome 'how to'. xxx

Still, after looking at it, I discovered that the bolt on the base is actually broken, and that I'm going to need a new base.
Thanks for this writeup.

Broken antenna base...

Brushing the 7" of snow off yesterday, broke the antenna off at the base. Told myself [until finding this thread] that it'll have wait until the spring but will order the new base & mast [old mast flex part rubber was dry rotted and needed replacing anyway] and get them in next week! Great pix & write up, is this a sticky-if not it should be!!
