Need Info:
A fellow local member of our Grand Am club had one of those metal stubby antennas until someone at his work had walked into it/ knocked it over and bent it. He moved it back, and it eventually broke clean off. (threaded screw part that the antenna screws on)
How do you replace this unit? I looked in the trunk behind the carpet and I see a bracket, but it looks like the unit is rivited to the bracket?
I can get a replacemet at the scrap yard, but I don't know how this comes off? Or how to put it back on? Pls Help. Thanx

Should be two screws that hold the bracket on. Take those off and the rest should pull out I think. I removed one once before but I don't recall the exact details. Should be easy enough to get from a junkyard.

Alternatively, tell our buddy to pick up an automatic antenna kit and put that in instead. I thought about doing that years ago but never did yet. I'd rather just get it shaved someday since I never listen to the radio anyway.
