    2018 Explorer antenna

    i was driving home today and notice the 2018 explorer antenna. Looks like going backward in design. Can anyone explain why they went with the antenna that sticks out like it does in the picture? Is it the cellular antenna for the FordPass connect and the cellular hotspot?

    How to remove a broken antenna bolt?

    My antenna was snapped off by an automatic car wash a few months ago and I now have the time to replace it. I purchased an screw extractor but can’t get it to thread into the broken bolt.

    No Power to Power Antenna

    So after years of terrible radio reception, I finally removed my power antenna module and dug-out the broken plastic cable. However, when I turn my aftermarket stereo on, no power is going to the antenna. I think it may have been disconnected a long time ago. The blue wire from the head unit...
