Recently MUD members have been purchasing this antenna with some ease to install and some hardship. I recently purchased, followed the direction and still had a hard time.

Amazon product
I have a 95' LC with a power antenna. The antenna worked perfectly fine, but I like the look of the "stubby". The plastic nylon cord on my antenna is not cogged, so when fully extended during the install, I still couldn't pull it out.

Searched installs and PM members on thier install, and this was the best way for me. (This is A way, maybe not THE way).

Unscrew the silver special nut.

Turn power on the vehicle to give power to the antenna. Extended antenna for enough slack on the nylon cord. (I sat inside with the passenger door open to catch the antenna while it came out the slot).

There are two little nuts backed on to each other you'll have to separate. I used a needle nose vise grip and pliers. (Mine was extra tight so I used a splash of PB Blast).

Retracted the remainder of the nylon cord, installed the new conversion sleeve, and re-installed special nut.

Hope this helps someone. Maybe a 10 min job.

Depends where the cord broke. Mine broke deep inside. Just meant I had to pull the antenna motor assembly out, open it in the engine bay (because the toyota design morons didn't put a coax connector at the motor assembly) and fish out the broken junk). It's all pretty self evident when you get into it.

Of course only my wife uses the silly radio anyway, but then one must keep the boss happy...

cheers,
george.
