Hey Josh...You want to sell your stock base or anyone else?

I live here in Houston and on my way to work an illegal alien, without license or insurance, decided not to tie his plywood very well to the roof of his van and well you know the rest.

The dealer wants, get this, $350 for a new ANTENNA BASE.:curses:

I just threw up a little in my mouth!

see i wanted to do this pretty bad and noticed my longer OEM antenna was bouncing more than normal, due to the subs in the trunk shaking the antenna loose. so i ended up hand tightening it then realized what i was doing and was just like well fuck imma unscrew it n see what happends n looks like. sure enough the antenna part cam off clean and the base is still installd lookin very similiar to the shark fin. as i kno it now i still get reception around town. short cut n still looks good, oh and its free.

LOOKS AWESOME!!! I think the VG would be much better for the price though, assuming its not too much larger. However, they do paint the VG prior to shipping, and if the color match is good, its def the best choice IMO

So i bought a new antenna base for my 2002 IS300 Sportcross. I was hoping I could install it myself as my son assured me YouTube would have a full video. Well this post has been the most helpful. I was able to pull down the headliner enough so I could see and get my hands on the 2 bolts. I was easily able to remove them both. After removing the tape on both wires, one I unplugged very easily but this one is completely stuck. Any advice? Ive tried twisting, pulling, combo of both with no luck. Am I trying to unplug the wrong thing? I know NOTHING about working on cars but I can follow instructions.....
