    Does anyone know the correct wrench to take off the antenna ornament/casing? About to replace the whole damn thing after going through the car wash.:homer:

    I tried a pin wrench from harbor freight but the pins were too big to fit into the grooves of the ornament/bolt.

    Thanks!

    Looks like you've already tried it - but a screwdriver and hammer has always worked for me.

    You could go to the hardware store and get a washer with an inside diameter that fits over the black piece and slim enough to fit in the slots, cut in half, and turn with pliers.

    Yep.
    $25 + shipping if you want it. IIRC it does have the plastic shroud; not sure why that linked to Amazon. Mine was purchased through Toyotapartsdeal. I'll pull it out and snap a pic after work.

    Lift & sliders & some other stuff.
    Try a bike shop for a pin wrench with smaller pins.

    Not really bad, but I don't really care. I'm too impatient to get the right tool when I need the right tool. So hammer and screwdriver it is.

    Pretty sure a hammer and screwdriver are the right tool for everything.
