Re: 1997 Eddie Bauer power antenna

If the motor still runs usually it is just a broken "cable-type thingy"
inside the antenna mast which is relatively easy to replace from topside
(rather than taking the whole thing off which requires access through the
wheel well).

Try a google group (www.google.com/groups) search for "ford explorer power
antenna replacement" and you will find lots on this.

Re: 1997 Eddie Bauer power antenna

I've changed a few of these things and have always had to remove the power
unit, disassemble to get the old broken piece of the geared cable out. Is
there some other way?

Re: 1997 Eddie Bauer power antenna

On mine, you can run the geared plastic thing in and out (to inspect or
change it) if you remove the top cowling and the locknut and have a helper
operate the antenna motor. If the problem is the motor or the running gears
inside then you need to take the whole thing off from below.
