it is real easy to just get the ant out.just pull back that carpet which is held in by those buttons. pull it back just enough so go past where the jack hole is and to where the ant is. there are only 2 screws holding the whole system in. just unscrew those then unscrew the screw that is at the top of the motor where the ant goes in. then on the bottom there is a hose. it drains the water that falls through the ant. take it off gently. it will break easily. i broke mine and had to use some duck tape. it works though no leaks. then start jiggling the motor. it takes a while to get it out, just be patient. after it is out just unscrew the black part, where the ant went in. u will the see how it all works. just pull out the broken chain.jbloggs_c said:yeah i guess its the teeth on that cord broke off. i was messing with it for a while one day but i couldnt even get the antenna out of the car so i just said screw it ill wait to get some money and have it fixed.
