Antenna Mount (factory)

So I went to the car wash and my antenna broke up. First time I ever drove my car through one in three years, but with no hose at my place now it was long over due. I purchased a replacement one but the old one is rusted on so I wanted to see if anyone has a brake down on how to access the mount and possibly a part number.

It looks easier than I thought. It appears to plug into a harness as opposed to plugging directly into the radio, which would require pulling the center stack apart.

Fig A
1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
2. Remove antenna mast by unscrewing mast from antenna body. On vehicles equipped with manual retractable antenna, lower antenna fully.
3. Remove shroud (1), if equipped.
4. Remove antenna nut (2) and adapter (3)

Fig B
5. Disconnect antenna body cable from instrument panel antenna cable.
6. Remove inner fender shield as necessary to gain access to mounting fasteners.
7. Remove antenna body and cable (2) assembly from fender (1)

Do you have a breakdown on how to remove the fender or is it self explanatory?

The inner fender panel is held on by the plastic push pins and a few screws/bolts. Removing the wheel will let you get to all of them. On the larger push pins, pry out the center with a couple of small screwdrivers and then use a panel remover or similar tool to get all of the pin out.

FIG A
1. Remove the front fasteners (1).

FIG B
2. Remove the remaining 3 - 5 fasteners (1) and remove the splash shield (2)
