  4. I think that this is good solution if you have the tools (drill, tap, etc.). The end result looks good. An old standard antenna connector doesn’t always fit on the head unit. that was something I found out when I was trying to install a JVC radio/dvd/nav/etc.etc. radio in a Ford focus. The JVC had the old style connector and at the end of the original antenna cable was something completely different to match the factory radio. That is what adapters are for.

  5. Hey Eric, not to be a nit picker or anything, but i noticed you always wear your dirty gloves inside the customers cars. I assume this is to save on using tons of gloves, but dont the customers get mad when they find grease and what not inside their cars?

    The one and only time I let a mechanic work on my car other than myself, he ended up getting grease on my headliner. I have yet to get it off and it still haunts me every day.

    Great videos though! Super informative!

  6. Huh, how’d I miss this? We have the slightly newer version of this car, a 2000 Mazda 626, same color even. Common faults include a Ford-sourced automatic transmission that fails at 70,000 miles, and volume control knobs on the original stereo.

    On the 2000 model, the antenna is built into the back window. Reception is horrible, too.

    Most stuff on that car is easy to fix. Until the suspension captured nuts come uncaptured.

  7. i have a car where the antenna is in the left front guard, i’ve got to replace the whole thing because the genius at the car wash destroyed my mount and i’ve wanted to fit a manual lockdown one. only problem is i have to refit the cable aswell throught the firewall and remove most of the dash to get it into the back of the stereo again. definately not a quick fix.

  11. the whole point of the kit is so you can run the new one to the radio, not hook it up to the old antenna cable.
