Hi, I have a 87 iroc and iam having problems with my power antena not operating. I went to take the antena motor out, from inside passanger side front fender. Is there a trick to get this out,i have it loose the antena and motor, but iam unsure how to remove it, there seems to be a big electrical connector in the way. I dont know how to disconnect the connector, without breaking it.There seems to be a clip on each side of the connector, and it also seems to be siliconed, where it goes together. Any help appreciated thanks John

Well that big electrical connecter you see isn't a connecter, it is a firewall feed though for the ECM and other components leading into your dash. As for other than that good luck!

Welcome to the site john G,

I have an 1989 camaro service manual that goes into some detail about your power antenna. If you would like, I can scan it and post it to your e-mail. It is several pages and will be a rather large file. By the way, what type of problems are you having with your power antenna. Won't go up or down, sluggish operation?

The Trickster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trickster, thanks for offering to scan the pages on the antena,but i do have a shop manual for the car, My problem is getting the power antena assembly out of the car seems very tight in there and cant get it to squeeze past that electrical firewall connector,dont know if this connector comes apart or not, and i dont want to screw it up. The problem i having with the antena is the motor runs and antena doesnt go up. thanks John

Greetings again john G,
Remove the kick panel and knee booster panel from the passenger side and look under the dash. You will see the other side of that connector you are talking about. There should be two screws or bolts holding it together. Take these screws or bolts out and the connector should come apart easily. You have another connector similar to this one on the forward firewall just below the power booster on the drivers side.

The Trickster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
