Hello again Gurus :-)
My friend who has the 1988 E300 was driving to work this morning when she
poor reception from her radio. When she investigated she found the antenna
on the ground, having shot out of the car. It was still connected to the
cable and the motor
that actuates it seems to be working ok. The antenna was lubricated with
graphite recently but
that could hardly have caused the problem.
I suggested there must be a nut or other restrainer to keep it from blowing
out. She thinks
not. There must be a restraint somewhere. Anyone know the setup?.
