you can go to just about any auto parts store and get the universal replacement for about 50 bucks i know its not perfectly stock 85, but i looked at the kit on a number of occasions (used to work at kragen) and it should work

You need to determine first if you need the entire power antenna assembly, including the motor and gears, or if you just need the power antenna mast = the silver accordion thing that rises with the white nylon cord (coil) that raises it. If your motor and such are good, then you should only get the mast and coil = much cheaper. It the silver mast section is dangling/broken and maybe jams, then only buy that.

The silver antenna is available w/o the white coil if the nylon coil looks good.

On the other hand, sometimes the white plastic gears that operate the fishing-reel-like coil sometimes break, then you need to replace the whole thing. If you aren't sure, take out the antenna assembly and using a 12V power supply (battery or 12V test source) fiddle with it to see what works.

So at least 3 options (maybe ra24man can give even more):
- Metal mast alone
- Mast with raising coil
- Everything (most expensive, and over $300 last I looked)

In any case, when you repair it, make sure the fitting where it goes through the fender is tight to keep out water.

Seriously, if you need the mast components I'd go Toyota. If you need the whole thing, look at all your alternatives unless Toyota has lowered the price below $300.

Mark: Just trying to help them figure out what part they need. Most of the time it is just the mast.

I'd recommend replacing the whole assembly. I've repaired them in the past, with mediocre results. Here's a pic of the replacement parts...

i would need the whole thing, because when i got my car i have this cell-phone looking attenna that doesn't catch reception well at all, and i don't like that look anywho...so the price would be for the WHOLE thing--->188.28? plus s/h?\
just curious are there any other alternatives, or other toyota models that would fit our cars...

I'm interested in the following:

86353-14332 Mast/Cable SubAssy (Aug82-Apr84 and Feb85-Dec85) List $42.08, Cost $29.46

Are there any other part combinations available for the antenna other than what you have shown?

I haven't, but I hear they work pretty good if installed correctly.
