Hey all, looking for advice how to remove the cord from my antenna. (Please note, I don’t mean just unscrewing the antenna. I mean removing the cord which runs from the car to the antenna.)
I was going through a drive through car wash and tried to unscrew the antenna, but it was stuck in there good. I figured if I couldn’t unscrew it, the car wash couldn’t do much damage either (LOL incorrect.) Turns out the antennae mount sheared off from the bracket in the car- you can see on the picture.
Those two circular spots are where it was originally connected to the bracket. Since that broke, and I couldn’t unscrew the antennae anyway, I ordered a new bracket and antenna.
My issue is that I can’t figure out how to remove the cord (shown at the bottom in said picture.) It does rotate, but doesn’t seem to be unscrewing. I tried pulling it out but I’m not seeing it budge- had someone stronger than me try too, but he had no luck. It would be really unlucky if I have to replace that entire cord and route it up through the car to the front! (I’m pretty sure it eventually connects to the radio itself.) Hoping that’s not the case. Would post more pics but I’m limited to one for now as a new user.
