Default How do I make the antenna on my 99 Civic extend further out??

I've noticed on other Civics of my year that the antenna looks longer or extended out further than mine is. Mine sticks out about 7 inches, others I see look to be at least 11 or 12 inches out. Do you know if it is adjustable? If so, how do I adjust it? I tried gently pulling on it, but that didnt do anything

if this is the manual antenna in the driver's side windshield post it should pull out to at least 12-18 inches. chances are the antenna mast got bent somewhere along the way. I suggest you spray down into the mast with a penetrating oil such as a WD-40 and give it time to soak then try to pull the mast out further.if the radio reception is okay, don't bother trying to pull it out any further. If you're bothered by the appearance or if the radio reception is poor you'll have to replace the mast.. In that case it won't hurt to try to pull on it as hard as you can since the worst thing that will happen is that you will have to replace the mast anyway. its not that hard to replace the manual mast as there are only two screws that hold it into the top of the windshield frame.you may want to take those two screws out and pull the mast up to see if there is anything obviously wrong underneath although you won't be able to see the actual mast.hope that helps
