My power antenna is stuck and while the motor is struggling, the mast will not come down more than halfway. I took off the bolt that holds it, but if i move it, the sheetmetal flexes and I'm afraid to go any further. How do i remove the unit without damaging the body, etc.?
TIA

well... you do have to tear into the trunk... :-S.

Just undo all the bolts/nuts and that one on the outside that has the slots in it... and WALLA.

Finally had a chance to try it. How the hell do you loosen the antenna "nut" safely? Is there a special tool?

Did you try using a flatheat, putting it in one of the four slots on top of the nut and twisting (not pushing) it counterclockwise. Try using two if needed. My came off easy with the first try.
