Gretings....just bought a 2000 jetta vr6....very happy! I went online however and ordered a new antenna...the black molding on the base of the factory one has become all faded from wax. My question is, are these easy to install?? Is the instalation just on the outsidee of the vehicle on the roof, or do u need to get under the ceiling in the interior.....thx!!

i read in motor trend that rubbing alcohol will take the old white waxy crap off. if its not too late you could try that....if it works its a hell of alot less trouble.

The antenna base on my 2000 also has gotten very rotted looking. It happened so suddenly I thought perhaps someone had ripped me off and swapped out an old one! I fact they did do that to the mast but since the base is bolted from underneath I don't see how the base could have been swapped. Anyway, you might check out parts4vws.com. They show a base seal repair kit that might work for you. Not sure how it installs. Good Luck.
