Having problems with your 2002 GMC Yukon XL ?
I have a 2001 yukon and i need to replace they entire antenna from the antenna base to the radio I can't figure how to route the new cable.
You have to remove radio to disconnect antenna cable then you have to attach fish wire to the end of the cable.then remove the antenna mast base mounting screws and pull up the base and its cable.attach the new cable to the fish wire and pull the wire back slowyl and carefully into the body.routing it over the instrument panel as the original cable had been.
This will require dash removal, the factory routing for the cable is behind and above the airbox. The easiest way to do it if you have not already pulled the old one out is to attach a piece of 16 guage wire to one end of the factory cable before you pull it out, and then when you pull out the old cable it will in turn pull the 16 guage wire through in its place. At this point attach the new cable to the 16 guage wire and pull the 16 guage wire through which will in turn pull your new cable through. If you have already pulled the old cable out and want to install the new through the same route then you will have to remove the airbox, or you can just reroute the new cable.
