Power Antenna Mast - Maintenence
My power antenna would not retreat all the way down. Looks like road grime may be the cause. The mast is straight with no visable damege. Is there a proper way to clean/lubricate antenna mast???

These antennas screw up all the time after a few years. They work pretty hard and pretty often.
They gather a lot of grit because they never get washed.
Whether you wash the car yourself or run it through an automatic car wash the power antenna is generally down - when you wash the car yourself, the engine is off - you put them down for automatic car washes.
I've had great luck with them by remembering to wipe the grit off them every time I buy gas; I just use water and a paper towel. It's surprising how dirty they get. I haven't had any trouble on my last 2 or 3 antennas.
