Seems like I should know this one, but I've never owned a vehicle with a power antenna until recently.... It worked fine all winter, but I guess the ravages of the winter finally gummed-up the antenna to the point where it didn't want to retract very easily. I made a mental note to hit it with some silicone spray but it may have damaged itself before I got the chance?? It will extend with no problems, and when I pull the key the motor tries to retract it but it won't move. If I gently push down on the very top of it...it will "grab" and then retract normally. I have completely cleaned and lubed the antenna so it moves pretty well now once it's underway. TWO GUESSES: 1. Some sort of plastic gear has partially stripped in the motor assembly and the first few teeth that would normally start it downward are now chewed up. 2. Perhaps something can be adjusted on the "collar" that the antenna retracts into?? Its sort of like a washer with shallow slits across it (think the ignition bezel trim on a 1st Gen!! ) With a special tool, or a WIDE screwdriver I could potentially loosen this?? Any ideas, or simple fixes?? I know that I'll have to pull the inner fender liner to get the entire thing removed if it comes to that, and I'm sure a complete new assembly is a substantial number of these $$$$$, so I'd like to spend some time trying to make this one work if I can.
