It appears that the power antenna on this 86 5690sl is not completely finishing...it leaves about 6 inches. It doesn't completely disappear. <br>Is there a way lubricate this? It will go all the way in if i physically push it down..It just seems like it is too tight for it to go on the own...will WD work?<br>Please reply to [email protected]<br>Thanks,

I currently own a 1988 560SL that experiences the exact same thing from time to time. I use WD-40 sprayed onto a rag to clean and lubricate the antenna every other month. Since then, I have not had a problem with the power antenna retracting flush into the hole.

I had the same problem with my 560sl 1988.<br> It needs to be cleaned and lubed. After that<br> I've had no problems. I found that making it<br> go up and down works better when driving.<br> ie clean and lube then work it up and down while driving.
