Wiring roof-mouint antennas

New owner of an 2004 Explorer XLT, has existing hole in roof for NMO antenna mount. Suggestions on how to take apart the corner post coverings to route coax from roof to mobile radio?

Thanks,

Jack

Did you find your answer?

Which corner posts are you wanting to remove?

The very back just pull off, standard clips.

The front will have to use a socket to remove the handle.

Dan,

Thanks, the install went well, except that when popping-off the side panel a small spring-holder inside it broke, preventing the shoulder belt height adjuster from exerting tension toward the up-position. Not noticeable unless you knew it was there before. The headliner edges allowed easy access to snake the antenna coax (possibly even with connector installed if user's want to try it that way) from the center of roof 3/4" hole toward either side post.

Taking the center console apart in several pieces to route a Motorola Spectra wiring harness was tedious but not difficult. Ford sure makes it easy to get DC power via a pre-drilled plug in the firewall.
