My friend has a 96 civic and bought a new antenna, because the one on there is all bent. And I tried to take it out but it didnt come out. So I got the Haynes for my car, 92-95, and it says to disconnect the cable from the back of the radio, tie a string to the end, pull it though, than tie the string to the new cable, feed it back through, done. Well, the new antenna cable on his is definatly not long enough to reach the back of the radio. So maybe there is a half way point? And I cant find where the wire runs. I can hear it when he moves it, sounds like its behind the black material against the firewall. It started getting dark(damn day light savings) and I didnt feel like pulling it apart. Since I have never done this I didnt want to get involved and get messed up and be all ass backwards in the dark. Any info is good info, thanks for the help.
