Perfect fit , well made .
Got a del sol to fix up and the original antenna was broken. Pretty straight up installation if you got the necessary tools and panel removal tools. Replaced in about 40 minutes. Never took the console and panels inside off a car before. Only issue was the new antenna housing was a tad different but it was Easy as 1,2,3 still. No more broken antenna.
Pros: Great manual antenna replacement. comes with the tool to removed the housing for the antenna on the exterior side.
Cons: Housing on antenna is definitely different and it is a tad tricky.
First time consumer. Extremely impressed by the helpful and knowledgeable staff!
Fit was exact to the original! Great value compared to others, even with the shipping cost.
Pros: Exact fit! Quick shipping and great value!
Cons: None that I can think of!
Excellent service - fast and accurate with excellent value
Pros: produ t as described
Cons: No cons
I think this product is very poorly made. The antenna is supposed to be 4 sections at 31" long. One of the sections won't even come out so it only extends to about 24". The mast wobbles in the housing. The threads on the mount clamp were stripped right off the bat so I had to put a screw all the way through with a nut on the end. The drain tube that comes with it is about 4" too short and also wouldn't stay on the very small nipple so I bought some tubing at the hardware store. It does get better reception than the broken OEM antenna. I find it hard to believe that the other reviewers didn't have any of the issues with it that I do. I also am shocked that Crutchfield would sell something of this quality, but I guess there isn't too much call for this application so why worry about such a minute market.
Pros: Inexpensive (for good reason), Arrived 3 days ahead of schedule, Instructions were pretty good
Cons: Won't extend all the way, Mast wobbles in the housing, Threads in mounting bracket were stripped, Drain tube is too short and wouldn't stay on the nipple,Crutchfield response on 2/23/2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our customer service or tech support teams right away. In this case we would've sent out a replacement free of charge.
The antenna is not oem so its slightly different, the shaft is smaller than the original and the bracket is missing the clamp to hold the drain tube away from the antenna bracket. I didn't want the the drain tube to rub on the antenna bracket, so I put some insulation around the tube and bracket. The antenna is not a perfect fit so I had to struggle with it for a good 15 minutes before i can get it on. Once installed, it looks great and feels sturdy. Overall, the antenna is good for the price and looks just as good as the original.
Pros: Looks great. Low price.
Cons: Different bracket with missing clamp. Antenna Shaft is smaller, so the original bracket can't be reused.
Identical to stock antenna. Direct fit replacement. Item arrived in perfect condition and works perfectly.
Pros: No fit or function issues at all
Excellent service. The product arrived on time, was easy to install and included everything necessary for installation.
Pros: All good. Good efficient service, decent pricing, and parts as described.
Cons: Nothing bad to report.
EXCELLENT PIECE BUT VERY DIFFICULT TO INSTALL!
Pros: LOOKS AWESOME
Cons: HARD TO INSTALL
The bracket sent with the kit was a little different but fit and worked well. The antenna kit had all the correct parts and fit well. Change-out was easy and product works great.
Pros: Kit comes complete - even has a wrench tool to tighten the washer nut.
Cons: Slightly different bracket. Will not hold the clip to secure the hose like the original did. Made it work using a tie wrap.
exact replacement, good instructions, fast shipping- thanks!!
We got this one to replace a broken antenna on my wife's Del Sol. I guess that's the only reason you'd buy an antenna. The old one was hard to get out because the screw that holds it is in such a funny place. Once that was done, it was easy to pull the old one out and slide the new one in, and it works just fine.
Pros: It works.
Cons: Can't think of any.
Looks really good and works efficiently. Definitely better than a broken stock antenna.
Pros: Looks and works awesome, Cheap
I just bought a 95 Honda Del Sol that came to me with a broken radio antenna. I considered piecing it back together using some crude fabrication methods, until I found this antenna. At the price it was definitely worth buying it to see if it would work. It arrived unbelievably fast (within a couple days) and I installed it on my lunch break while at work. When I drive home tonight I will be able to hear all the stations in my area, instead of a select few. My only gripes are that the antenna seemed like it had been returned (the nut that holds it all together had a few little scratches), and the antenna doesn't slide in and out very smoothly. Also, the tool that comes with this product is way too soft and bent the moment it encountered resistance removing the old nut, I had to use a flat head screwdriver and a hammer to tap the old nut loose first. (If you try this, aim the screwdriver at the black plastic part of the old antenna so if it slips you're not going to scratch your paint, I don't want to be blamed if the screwdriver slips off and scratches your paint... do this at your own risk). Even with this little problem the install was still quite simple, and I was done in 30 minutes. Overall I'd say these are minor gripes, the reception on my Pioneer is back to what it should be now. At this price you can't go wrong.
Pros: Excellent reception. Easy install.
Cons: Possibly used/returned. Not smooth sliding in and out.
Compatibility: The package states this antenna works with the following vehicles, but please use the Vehicle Selector to verify compatibility:
