I got an antenna from AutoZone that I want to put on my car, I was wondering how I put the antenna in and secure it. I tried to put the antenna in, but it was too loose, so I just kept the stock antenna in. The stock antenna has a fitting that keeps it secure, I was thinking maybe I could take the fitting off and put it on the antenna I want to put on my car, but I'm not sure if that will work.
Here's the antenna that I want to put in: https://www.autozone.com/electrical...p/pilot-camo-arrow-antenna-ant-100/411630_0_0

It's really easy to replace the antenna when using an OEM part the number is Ford F6DZ18A886AB. Google it for aftermarket suppliers. You'll get a new antenna stalk and the white tooth cord and instructions. Cost about $50. Remove the spare tire. Note how the jack is positioned so you replace it the correct way. Unbolt the antenna motor & disconnect antenna cable to amplifier. Open the motor box, pull out the broken cord. Insert new antenna in fender and feed white cord into box. Reconnect antenna wire & bolts. Half hour to do.

With a "universal" antenna like that, you will likely need to design your own mounting system. FYI, Universal fit means it wont work without modification in 98% of applications.
