I have recently replaced my antenna mast on my '87 325ic and it now does not fully retract when I turn off my stereo. It looks like all I need to do is trim some of the length off of the serrated plastic feeder to solve this problem. Is this correct? I don't want to trim it and then find out the hard way if I'm right or wrong!

You do not want to trim it or the antenna mast will not go up all the way. You should remove the motor from the car. Take the cover off. Remove the cord from the old antenna mast. Then you can install the new mast. It should go up and down with out a problem<p></i>

You will NOT want to trim the new cord or the antenna will not go up all the way. You need to remove the antenna assembly from the car. Remove the cover and remove the old cord. Then you should be able to install the new mast with out a problem.

Amplify a new tire valve stem, and screw a ball-cap on its end, and you have a "genuine" euro-style mini-antenna!<p>Zach<br>Patent Pending
