Antenna Removal in Electrical, Lighting & Electronics Posted September 3 · Edited September 3 by Kilgon The antenna is permanently fix at the base. I would purchase a standard short am antenna from the internet or one of the car parts sites or store and use that. Your current antenna is most likely held in place by 4 screws under the chrome plate. You can remove the glovebox and get easy access to the antenna cable. If you go to replace it I would tie a string to my old one out at the fender and then cut it at the base. Use the string to tie to the new one to help fish it through the fender and into the car as you pull the old one out. Not that hard to do.
