Excuse me if this is a dumb question. Is there a way to keep the automatic electric radio antena in the UP position when shutting off our 99 Legacy? In the mornings here ice forms over the top off the antena in the down position and I can't always get it scraped off or don't have time. I can hear the motor trying to put it up but its frozen over. I don't want to damage the motor or anything. Thanks--Dave

I have a 97 Legacy wagon, and my antenna got to where it was making a loud noise and would only go about half way up unless you got hold of it and pulled. I took the little cover of their in the back where the antenna motor is then got my antenna all of the way up, and unplugged it and have not had any more problems. It's great no more noise and the antenna is always up.

You can either disconnect the power to the antenna (preferably while it is in the extended position) disconnect the antenna up power output from the head unit, or replace the mast with one that does not retract...found at most auto parts stores.

I would reccommend just disconnecting the power to the antenna while it is in the up position...it's the most simple and cheapest (free!):banana:
