So I am having trouble getting the antenna mast out of the motor assembly. The Haynes manual says you should just be able to pull it out (assuming the ring on the body panel is taken off and the radio is turned to the ON position). However, whenever I try to pull the mast out I can get it fully extended, but it seems that it is locked in by something else. It's not bent on the bottom, because I have been able to extend it all the way. And there's no way to remove the mast by opening up the motor assembly (Don't know why they decided this design for an antenna was a great idea, cause it's really not). I have tried this with three different motor assemblies and I have wound up coming up with the same problem every time. Anyone have any suggestions on getting the mast completely out, besides buying a new antenna?
