antenna replacement for 99 taurus

Had an antenna that would not move up or down on my wife's taurus.. Thought I would "fix it". I was barely able to get my hand on the motor (thru the rear panel after removing the spare). I tried to pull the antenna up, figured it might be jammed.
Now the motor justs grinds for about 2 minutes then stops with no antenna movement when the radio is turned on or off.

I guess the antenna has to be replaced. Is there a direct replacement for this antenna/motor assembly?

You can put in a new Factory replacement for a small fortune or get a "Universal" antennae at a parts store.

Thanks, I was referring to an aftermarket replacement like you suggested. Just wonder how hard it would be to retrofit.
I'm not even sure if I can get it out. I can't even see how or where it is mounted...
Read a post that ford charges $280.00 for the antenna/motor assembly.

If you could get it pulled up you can unplug the power wires to the antenna motor and leave it up.
