Antenna Question

Post by Alex Kurdian » Sat Nov 06, 2010 7:15 pm

Hi Guys
Someone broke my antenna off and I wanna replace it with one of those screw in ones from antenna X they say off with the old and screw in the new on with the supplied adapter

Here are the pics of what came out..does the screw in ones go into the fitting attached...? The brass colored one in the picture? the old one just seemed to pop out once I unscrewed the black bolt thing on the mast as you can see...help!

Then the screw on mast will not work, you would need to replace the entire assy to go with those.
This is (I think)for what you have.
4793962AC Antenna mast Antenna mast, neon, retractable 2004 - 2005 $25.15 (US prices)

You might need to get an aftermarket antenna assy/cable to replace the retractable style. It isn't real clear in the parts drawing as to what is needed to go from that, to the solid mast type. I don't want to give you false PN's, especially for what yo pay.

Either way it would be between $65 and $95 depending on which is correct, and that is US pricing.

^^Wait a minute- a retractable Neon antennae? First I've heard of this! :shock: Could this be used on an SRT-4? Are they still available to order from Mopar?

Alex- sorry about someone messing with your car and sorry for hijacking your thread.

Funny to see, that the RHD-Neons are totally mirror-inverted - including antenna :lol:

This is prolly what you need. It should slide right in the hole. The separate metal piece you pictured is the retainer clip.

Gramps this should be available in the US as an '04/'05 option. Assuming, since it lists as shown above.

Sorry for saying yes to the thread on one without asking for a pic. i hope you didn't order or buy something you didn't need. I can't believe I did that.
But OD seems to be setting you up just fine so I will bow out and OD take continue to rescue the day. lol

^^I think that is house siding and bricks reflected in Alex's shiny paint job. :D

Ohhhh, I need to look into this then. I rarely listen to the radio in the car so having the antennae retracted like that would make for a smoother appearence (and keep the car stock rather than going for the aftermarket shorty ones).

I want to know where I can get a retractable antenna and get one installed. I like the idea and the ability to prevent a person from damaging it.

And can you convert a N/A neon for this option?

That PN is just for the mast. But if the counter person is a weeinie, it doesn't do you any good. :(

Like other things, it won't stop them from pulling it out and kinking it off.

^^I hope that someone can help you out. After seeing what you had, you sure wouldn't want one of the non-retractable ones that we have here. Plus, I want one too! :D

I could call the dealer, and see if that is still available here. Or you could PM BlackRoseRacing and he or possibly Danteneon could tell you if there are any still available.

I just called the local dealer, and according to them, it is no longer available from Chrysler, going to the fixed mast is the only option. :(

^^Dang it, tease me with the news that the retractable was available for some time without my knowledge and now it's gone before I could latch onto one. :banghead:

Sorry Alex for the bad news.

I've got a feeling a lot of parts are going to become unavailable, or priced way out of reach.

For example the heater tubes that connect the heater hoses to the head/water pump. Now over $200.00 Granted longer rubber hoses would fix that, but you get the gist of what's coming.

Thanx Bill for ringing I appreciate that...

Problem is Gramps the antenna that screws in the base doesn't sit in my fender...Chrysler even says with my current set up it wont fit!! :shock: :shock:

I'm gonna have to ring some more junk yards!

I rang a couple yesterday and the 2 neons they had there (which from the photos looked like they were in pretty good nick for parts) had the antenna broken off DAMIT!@

So for now I have an ugly broken off antenna ! :-(
