    Help with 2003 wrx antenna

    The antenna on my wrx has really been bothering me. I read some where that it is retractable by hand. However mine doesnt move at all. It is just in the open position and just doesnt flow with the look of the car. Is it really supposed to be retractable? If you guys could put up some pics of how or if you have moded the stock antenna that would be nice. Thanks

    There is an antenna delete mod and an internal buy you can buy. I can't remember off the top of my head who makes it. There are a few places you can buy it from. I'll try and look it up later if I can.

    Yeah I tried messing with it but no luck. It doesnt even look like its designed to retract. Usually the retractable ones get wider and wider as you go further down the antenna shaft. This one just seems to be one size all the way. I will try taking the screws out tomorrow. Hopefully it works, getting really annoying.
