Your cable assembly looks like it would actually fit the regular US fixed antenna. Anyone here care to comment?

I'm going to try and head to the main Chrysler parts warehouse in Tel Aviv today and ask them to show me the mast and assembly they have in stock for the 2001 Neon. I want to put an end to this madness!!! :tardbang:

Midnight, my sympathies for what you had to go thru with that guy.
Thank you! The sad thing is that I thought that I had found someone who might be able to locate oddball BUX parts for me (I could already count on Jenni and Gnuserup but there is no such thing as too many people to source your parts).

I had been wondering that myself. If you're right, it is too late for me to return it to the seller in Germany for a refund.

That would be great! I would be interested in buying for my car if they still have the parts available.

Unfortunately I haven't managed to get to the warehouse, hopefully tomorrow! I have a feeling they won't like me taking pictures of the parts, but I'll try my best.

Yours is completely different from mine (part number 04793961AE).

Tell them that you have parties interesting in buying their parts and maybe they will sing a different tune. :-**

If it is, I see no way of mating the antenna to the base. I hope that moe8555 has good news for us after he visits the Tel Aviv dealership.

I guess that he didn't find out anything. :banghead:

Gnuserup was kind enough to send me the parts in his pics so maybe people and at WI and MI meets next weekend can help me figure this out.

Hey I'm so sorry!!
This totally slipped my mind!

I came down with the flu, and then my folks flew in for a visit and this just sort of disappeared off the radar.

I will do my best to head over there this Sunday.

To the right of the antenna- what is the middle part of the three black pieces? Is this the same thing that we have on ours but painted black (ours are "chrome" or bright molded)? The part that requires the special Chrysler tech tool to remove?

That is the screw. You stick the big plastic thing on the base, use the screw and hide it behind the small cap. Yes, special Chrysler tool but you could use pliers.

Thanks for the response but now I'm really puzzled. Domestic Neons (as opposed to BUX ones) have a locking nut that is chromed- is this what you refer to as the screw? Would I be able to reuse it under the big plastic part as you say? I didn't get the part I asked about in the pieces that Gnuserup sent to me.

Nut, screw, whatever... If the diameter is the same, why not.
Or any nut that size...

Well, I finally ended up dragging myself to the dealer.

Unfortunately, I don't have any "good news" to share. The part was out of stock.

They offered to order it, which would take 2 weeks.

They refused to order it and let me see it before purchasing...

I think I'm going to just convert to US/domestic fixed antenna. I already have the fixed mast that I accidentally bought, so I think I'll just pick up the base as well and be done with it.

Sometimes "being special" isn't always worth the headache :-)

Did you end up getting the BUX antenna installed and working?

I now have all of the parts (thanks to Gnuserup :thumbup: ) but haven't tried to install. I'm going to ask my mechanic on the 28th.
