Default Power Antenna

My power antenna does move anymore. It just clicks. Has anyone used the antenna repair kit found on EBay to repair theirs or have any suggestions which one is best?

Does the kit you are looking include a new chrome mast? You need to look inside and see exactly what has failed. Mine was electronics as well s plastic parts.
I just ordered a replacement for mine from Amazon, will be attempting install in next few days.

Hi BC XJS

car-masts-uk on ebay

I'm sure they've got just what your looking for, I've used them myself a couple of times and they even have Hirshman Aerials if you should need one as well as those plastic strips

the hirshmann aerials are really easy to take to bits and repair mechanically. If I did it Im pretty sure you can

Says it doesn't fit my 94 either but I guarantee neither Amazon nor the manufacturer has tried it in a car that old. After all it's just an antenna. I have it and it looks pretty good. Physically fits, even the hole is the right size.
​​Wiring is the same. Just needs adapting. Will fit it today.
