Stereo/Antenna help!

I've got nothing but static on a removable face plate Sony with a stock antenna that's loose. I pulled the instrument panel and the radio to find that the connector from the antenna looked like it had been chewed by a bear. Not sure how it was connected. I'm guessing I have to replace the antenna, but there's an intake or something blocking the bolt inside the Jeep.

How do I get that intake out of the way or (please Please PLEASE) tell me there's an easier way!

unbolt it.. duh..

no.. seriously.. just remove the antenna from the outside.. you ahve to replace the whole unit.. there's like 2-3 screws and it should just come right out.. then you pull the cable out with it.. installation is reverse of removal..

Thanks. Didn't know it would come off from the outside. Replaced the battery cables today, did some in-depth cleaning and needs assessment. I only took out the stereo for a "look-see," and by then it was dark so I needed to put it back together and quit for the night.

Hey, I couldn't help it. Had to actually DRIVE it tonight! <grin> Wanted one toooooooo long to go a whole day working and not playing.
