Antenna Mast: Service and Repair
Antenna Mast Cleaning
ELECTRIC ANTENNA UNIT
Many antenna troubles can be prevented by cleaning and lightly oiling the antenna rod at periodic intervals. Cleaning is easily performed at oil change
intervals, or when a car is being washed, by wiping the rod with a soft cloth.
If car has been undercoated, check to make sure that drain holes have not been plugged.
If the antenna has been disassembled for service, reseal all areas at which the sealer was disturbed to prevent the entry of moisture.
Moisture in Mast Tube
Weak reception or fading may be caused by moisture in the support tube due to condensation or leakage through the insulation bushings. If trouble has
been traced to moisture in the tube, the antenna must be removed, disassembled and the drive housing should be cleaned or replaced. Always reseal
motor, drive and lower mast after servicing antenna.
