Antenna Replacement Kit
This full kit comes with everything required to replace your Honda del Sol's worn out and broken antenna.
Hey I just got done installing my new antenna and it works great.. a few notes for anybody planning to purchase it:
I tried the methods described for installing the new antenna and they weren't working for me. Instead of going from the trunk I decided to try to get to it from behind the passenger seat, this was MUCH easier. I was able to get to the whole bracket so I replaced the whole thing.
It's a great antenna, now I can tune into stations that I could never get with my stock antenna.. and that's before it broke!
I installed the new antenna in my 94 Del Sol.
The only area the instructions did not match my car were the screw that is part of the mounting hardware. After some playing I just felt around since the screw head is on the outside (fender side) of the car. Then I used a mirror, and sure enough my car (original equipment) had a round head phillips screw, so the 5/16ths socket was not going to work out. Used an offset phillips screwdriver and got a few scratches, but it worked out. I probably should have placed a rag on the metal of the small opening and then I could have avoided the scratched arm.
Also probably due to climate (salted roads) the metal from the top of the antenna would not release from the fender, so I placed a screwdriver into the antenna hole and tapped a bit until it released.
Installing the new one was a cinch after that.
After waiting a year for inventory to become available, I finally snagged one. Replaced the antenna in about 15 minutes on my 97 Si. I ended up loosening the screw that held the bottom of the antenna mast wiggled the old one out and put the new one in (Didnt use the included bracket). Im not quite sure how to use the bracket actually as I didnt appear to have the 'nut' that was mentioned in the instructions, but worked just the same.
