Power Antenna part?
« on: August 09, 2010, 03:29:36 PM »
Hi,

     Does anybody know if new power antenna parts, specifically the motor I think are still available for purchase at a reasonable price?

I don't think the motor is still available, but there are other options if your motor is out.

Well, I think my problem is that it keeps going up and down by itself, anybody else have this problem?

Common problem, if your motor is still running, then your mast is just broken.  Replace the mast.

The antenna does not have an on/off switch when the antenna goes up and down.  The mast simply provides
resistance when the mast in the up or down position and that is what stops the motor.  When the mast is broken, the motor
will run all the time.

The link below provides a link to the repair mast for the Corvette, it is the same for the TA.  Ecklers has reproduced the mast
repair kit and it is identical to the OEM one, I just bought one a couple weeks ago.

Thanks for the reply and the solution. It is probably what is going on. I have a 88 Buick Electra station wagon that has the same problem, do you happen to know if there is a replacement mast for that vehicle or GM cars of that year?

Send me the p/n on the antenna motor.  I have the delco microfiche and can decode the parts list on it.

Alright I will do that. Is the p/n of the antenna motor visible from under the hood?

On the antenna motor.  The antenna would need to be pulled out.

Do you want the part number of the entire antenna or just the motor?

The p/n on the motor is the master.  The mast does not cross back.  This applies to delco units.
