My antennae doesn't extend fully. I think the previous owner didn't put it up all the way, so they never cleaned the antennae. I have tried gently pulling up on it while pushing the ant up button, doesn't do anything. I don't want to risk burning out the motor. Anyone know how to free it up? Or does anyone have one to sell? Thanks.

Don't be so gentle when pulling up...

You might have a bent mast. To make sure, loosen the bushing on the bottom of the mast with a 12 or 13 mm open end wrench. This will free the mast that you can clean and lubricate it. If this does not help and the motor is still working just install a new mast, available from your MB dealer.

Re: Don't be so gentle when pulling up...

Well, I think I need a new antenna, the motor is fine, I can get the antenna to go up so that the largest section of it comes up, the the smaller segments are stuck, I tried pulling harder. I loosened the bottom of it, and it didn't let me do anything about the stuck segments.<br> <br> How much would a new mast cost?
