My antenna mast has broken all the way into the unit. Does anyone know the procedure to replace an antenna mast. It other cars, a nut on the outside holds it into place.

Thanks,

Mike

There is an external nut. You can order a new mast from everythingnissan.com or eBay. I got mine off eBay for $12 + $5 shipping. It also came with complete instructions.

The document I linked above does not mention this, but you'll probably have to remove the antenna motor motor as well cuz you've no doubt got a broken piece of the cable inside. No biggie - just take the cover off and clean out the broken piece(s). The whole procedure only took me about 30 minutes - with the hardest part being getting that external antenna nut back in place.
