Just wondering if the power antennae from my 95 PA will fit on the 99Riv?
Also any links or tips on how to remove/replace the power antennae?

Thanks

Many of GM's power antennae are the same, but I think the year/model change may be too far apart in this case. My initial guess is no, but it's possible. A used parts dealer should have cross-reference manuals to find out if they are interchangable.

Oh.

I wish the dealer sold parts for the Riv's factory antennas - power antennas are pretty simple gadgets. On the Volvo I used to own, the dealers sold a factory replacement mast, and actually it was not terribly expensive. yawn

I replaced my antenna with I think a Metra PW22 from Pep Boys, when it broke. The PW22 fits OK but you have to crank the top fitting down pretty hard to get it to seal out the water. You probably want to scavenge the factory plugs off the busted antenna, and it may take a while to splice them onto the replacement because the colors aren't the same. And it's a little bump on top of the fender - does not recess like the factory original antenna. I think the replacements from Delco are the same on top as the PW22s, but with the right plugs for the harness. And it was the weirdest thing - I had tu use the antenn for a while before it would finally work right. Sometimes it would not extend and sometimes it would not retract. mad

That said, I bet you can get the Metra pretty reasonable price if you shop around. wink

'95-'99 Rivieras all take the same antenna but looking at GM Parts Direct and Monster Parts Online, they show the PA takes a different part number. It didn't show the number for the PA but the Riv number is 88891021.
