How to replace antenna?

I have a 1996 Sable LS w/a power antenna. The upper portion of the antenna is broken off and the antenna does not go up and down any more although I hear the motor run. I bought a new mast or antenna for it.

How do I get the old one out?

It is mounted on the back drivers side, basically behind the rear window.

You can get an aftermarket universal power antenna from the local parts store. It is a complete unit that replaces the $280.00 Ford unit.

Remoce the L.R. inner panel to access it.

A whole new motor is too expensive for my taste. I just need to get my current antenna out for now.

If you got a new mast, then remove the nut around the bottom of the mast and try to pull it out. The new mast has a plastic track that will catch if you put it in and cycle the key.

I removed a nut type thing that has 4 grooves in it. I turned on the radio and tried to pull out the mast but it won't come out. Seems like there must be another piece that I need to remove yet.
Not sure what to do next.

Read the manual or ask someone more experienced.

I will have to ask someone more experienced because the manual doesn't say how to remove it.
