Default 1988 Prelude Power Antenna

1988 Prelude Power Antenna

Any one know how if it is possible to replace the antenna mast , or do I
need a complete power unit?
Car just purchased,radio on,went to close boot and the spoiler edge
caught the antenna and mangled it into the boot rim.
Crazy alignment of unit,and on investigating the fitting there seems no
way of aligning to clear spoiler.
Any ideas please! (yes, I know I could turn radio off before opening
boot)

Just purchase a new mast (US$40 or so). The motor and gearing are probably
fine. I found it easiest to pull the unit out of the car and replace the mast
on the bench. There is a another method in which you use a spanner wrench to
remove the escutcheon nut at the fender. The keeps the mast from flying out of
the tube when you turn on the radio. With the retaining nut off, pull the mast
out and insert a new one. The flexible nylon drive rod will engage the toothed
gear inside the motor assembly when you slide in the new mast.
