It quit working suddenly when I was retracting it. It's a manual power antenna with the up/down buttons on the dash. It quit with about 3 in. still extended. Upon repeated tries it moved a bit, but then quit moving entirely. It's not the fuse because I can hear the motor running with different pitches for the (attempted) up/down motions. Upon grasping the end of the antenna I can move it up and down to the point where it stopped, with the telescoping sections moving loosely within each other.

Is there an easy quick fix, like jamming it down with force to somehow re-engage the mechanism, or does it need replacement or what?

We are the original owners - it was factory-ordered near the end of the model year, and it has about 98k miles on the odometer.

Thanks.
