Re: [DML] Antenna question

Sounds like your ribbon gear is either broken or worn
really badly.  The ribbon gear is a long piece of
plastic, about three feet long, the width of half a
Popsicle stick with gear teeth all along it.  It is
curled inside the lower round portion of the antenna
and pushes the mast up and pulls it down.

I had luck with buying just the plastic ribbon gear
and installing it on my wife's S-70.  I bought it on
Ebay and the instructions for it were pretty good.  On
Josh's car, I just replaced the whole antenna because
it was so old and worn out.  If  you are interested,
contact me off list and I'll get the Ebay site for
