I second Navin's question. Why the need for a retrofit power antenna?

Please note the thread was originally started in May 2005. I didn't want to start a new thread when one already existed. My problem is that the antenna is faulty and MAY need replacing, I wanted to check out my options so that I don't make an on-the-spot rash decision and buy a poor quality replacement.
Any recommendations you can make Sam through your experience?

I can tell you that spending more and buying it from the company is pointless. I would recommend you keep a budget of under 1000 and get it replaced from a reputed aftermarket dealer, like poona motors.

What high quality brands are available and at what cost?
I have a power antenna for the Baleno for the last two years. It makes groaning noises, and gets stuck on partial retract sometimes. I just extend the antenna by putting on the HU, wipe the antenna down with a cloth sprayed with WD-40, wipe again with a clean cloth. This works for about a month or 45 days when the process needs to be repeated.

I am sorry I am not around here much these days which explains the delay in answering your question.

I would suggest you get it replaced with MASS. If you think they are too much, go to G.P Road, before that pray to your God and trust a good bloke will come along to do justice and charge you reasonably.

If all above fail, send me a PM, but dont expect me to respond immediately 'cos i rarely come here these days. Send me an email instead.

cheers

I found MASS to be of little help in my case. They could only recommend that I replace the entire unit (I had a broken antenna), for about 3K.

Finally reached out to the Nippon guys in Bangalore. It cost me Rs 1500/- to replace just the antenna.
It has been working well for over a year now.

Please see if you can reach Nippon Chennai for help, before you go to the local shops.
