Not sure what your answer has to do with antenna base replacement.

Pressing on, I cut the ruku 2 connector off stripped the wire, a solid core wire and a braided around it. Cut the old antenna base off the special wire harness revealing a solid core wire and another twisted core wire. Matched them up and taped them off. Put base back in which by the way is a pita. Locked everything back up.

Getting FM great now but no AM.

Any ideas?

antenna

I need to replace my antenna base and antenna.

hate to bring back to life an old thread but have a question. So you don't have to remove the whole back seat to remove the back right pillar cover and seatbelt? is that correct? so the antenna connection is behind the pillar cover? is that correct?

Absolutely nothing. It is in relation to this comment in the thread:

The factory had cross-threaded the stub into the antenna base. Oh goody. I had to dismantle the base, then I had to cut the plastic shroud up the back with some dikes and a utility knife to get the base that the stub screws into. The stub base is knurled and heat welded into the shroud - this was stripped from me trying to get the stub off by unscrewing and the wire from the base electronics was broke off due to twisting. Got it out. Then I cut the rubber shroud off the stub to reveal a small wrench point at the bottom of the stub, covered previously by heavy rubber. A pair of vice grips and a small wrench later and that's when I discovered the issue. Too bad I didn't do it a couple months earlier. My extended warranty ran out in March. I would have had them put a new one on and reassemble my headliner.
