buy a new antenna and install it. On my car you just pull back the panels in the trunk and you will see the antenna and motor. then there are two bolts and you slide it right out.

just buy a new one. its a simple install (about 45min) and its a cheap part too.

like said above, pull the panels off in the trunk and the motor will be right there. if it doesnt go down you might need to cut the mast because the antena will need to slide through the hole into the trunk to be pulled out

I'll sell you my antenna, and get an S2000 antenna for myself. :) Or you could just do the S2000 antenna yourself. :(

Most of the interior panels are either clips or just yank, but the side panels in the trunk have a bolt or two. You can probably get more clips at the dealer, I've broken a few... let me know how much they charge you if you get them.

The S2000 antenna can be bought at the dealer for around $20. The conversion kit... someone on this board was selling them for about $20 but that was a couple of years ago... I'd try a search here.

Just take out the back seats, the rear center and driver side interior panel there are a few bolts and then the rest just pops out. Go get a haynes manuel and it tell you exactly how to take it out, and then there are two bolts the hold the antenna motor, on but fir take a flat head and turn the circle thing on the exterior part around the antenna off, then undo the antenna wire and pulol it down and out. Its fairly easy.heres a good link http://www.*****************/sections/articles/showArticle.asp?ArticleID=859

HOLY CRAP $4.50 each?! Wow, lunch special at my favorite teriyaki joint or... a shitty plastic clip smaller than a popcorn kernel that's bound to break. Absolutely ridiculous. Thanks for letting us know, rep for you.
