    Antenna Grind

    The antenna on our '02 WS6 will "grind" when it reaches full extension for just a second or so. The grind is quite loud and only happens on extension. Any ideas other than replacing it?

    sounds like the strip of nylon on the shaft of the antenna is starting to get tore up. i think you can just replace the shaft when this happens instead of buying the whole assembly.

    The best analogy would be that it sounds like your fuel or oil fill cap after it is tight -- if you keep twisting it starts clicking. Same thing with the antenna -- after it reaches full height it sounds like that, only more of a grind. Is there a clutch setup on the antenna motor that would allow the motor to run for a second or so after it raises all the way?
