I accidentally left the radio on when I went through a car wash and the antenna broke off. Anybody know what I have to do to replace it? I saw a post on the wiring diagram...I thought of just going to a junkyard and getting one. Thoughts?
Get a new antenna mast from the dealer. A friend at the controls of the car may be of enormous help.
Loosen and then remove the nut at the antenna base. Its on the exterior of the vehicle just above the black rubber grommet.
Turn the power on so the radio can be turned on. Turn on the radio. The antenna will automatically push its way up and out of the fender. Remove the old antenna completely.
Now, put in the new antenna's splined tail and turn off the radio. This will suck the tail all the way in along with the mast. When the antenna is all the way inside the drive mechanism, reattach the nut and tighten.

Hey all, new here, (and I've tried to search Google and on these forums), but I was wondering what all the differences were between all the years of the 190e? It doesn't appear that there is anything major and I'm wondering if most, if not all, exterior pieces can be swapped between all the...
