There are occasions where the antenna cable breaks off in the power unit and will not allow the replacement mast to be pulled in all the way. In this event you will have to remove the power antenna assembly from the car and disassemble the drum assembly before you reassemble the power unit. Once this is done, use a light grease or white grease on the drum assembly, then reinstall the power unit in the car and proceed with step 6. 3. Insert the new mast cable into the top of the power antenna tube with the teeth facing toward the rear or back of the car. Then have someone turn the radio off, as the power unit begins to pull the new mast in, guide the new antenna into the power unit, as it pulls the mast down into power unit, it may on the first try not pull the mast all the way down, don't worry, install the outer nut and turn the radio on and off a few times as this will center the new antenna mast.
