“You just need to replace the mast. They are cheap…less than $20.00. No need to open up the motor. No need to even get into the trunk area to expose it. Just loosen the antenna retaining nut at the top of the antenna on the body, remove the sleeve and keep turning the radio on and pulling. It will come completely out. To replace, just slide the plastic piece all the way in, and turn the radio off so it will grab the piece and pull the antenna mast in. Once it’s in all the way re-tighten the nut at the top of the antenna. It’s very simple and really the only way to deal with one that is bend it to replace it.”
