Question Answered: Radio antenna motor is broken, how much should it cost to replace it?

The power radio antenna should cost you $40 or $50 for a replacement one. I suggest buying a generic or universal one on Ebay or from one of the parts stores. I think Autozone and Pepboys both carry one. No matter the make of the car, they all work the same. Constant power, Radio power signal (tells it to go up and down), Ground, and the antenna lead. Examine your antenna cable and connector closely. Some cars you need an adapter and some of the adapters are not easy to get. Good Luck. AE_pgh
Car Review: 1995 Toyota T100

I have actually had the pleasure of seeing and driving one of these trucks with more than 300k miles on it.
I would have to rate it an excellent truck because of how well it still performs and drives.
Toyota could have made the cams direct gear drive and put hydraulic auto adjust valves in the unit which would have made it much more maintenance free. Standard glass headlights would have been a nice option as well and would have offered more options in improving visibility in bad weather conditions.
Truck is much more solid and much more rust free than its Tacoma sibling.
This unit is stable under load and handles well in adverse conditions. Ride is athletic and response is stout and sure.
Good truck with lots of torque and perky power. Will not win the indy 500 but when you are hauling things, you have to be careful and easy.
Easy to work on and straight forward. Lots of upgrade parts from newer years are backwards compatible to make this vehicle more capable. Use alternators from 98 to 02 Toyota trucks for more amps.
I give this one 4 out of 5. F-150 gets 2 out of 5 and chevy-dodge is not even on the map. Too many problems.
