I had it fixed once under warranty. They ran new antenna wiring. It's
happening again, Someone here gave me advise about the connection on
the bottom of the antenna. But I haven't done anything yet, especially
since I now have Sirius satellite radio (thanks to my financee, what a
wonderful Christmas gift). Google the group and you should be able to
find the advice about the antenna.
Yes, same probelm here, get a T20 or T25, remove the inside dome light, and
mounging bracket, you will find the bottom of the antenna mount, the dealer here
just loosened the connection, twisted it around and tightened it up testing the
connection while tightening it, until the noise stopped.
Someone posted here a while ago that he soldered the connection of the wire to
the lugnut type connector and that fixed the problem also, haven't tried that
myself so can't verify how effective it is.
If you remove the bolt from underneath, the antenna will fall on the roof, so
you may need two people to put it back, unless you have a sun roof.
