Is there any lubrication/maintenance required for the electric antenna?

My antenna occasionally makes noise when it is going down, and it sounds like it needs to be lubricated (98 S70 T5 manual).

I had the same problem a few years back on my high mileage 99 S70. Eventually, the antenna got stuck in the "half way down" position, where it remains to this day (reception still good).

Is this common?

Thanks for any input.

Re: Antenna Noise (Taleof2Bricks2)

After I replaced antenna's mast two years ago I clean and lubricate new one once in a month or so. It helps keep it quiet. Never had it stuck since even in a winter. I use the grease from AutoZone, can check which one later today.

Cheers

Thanks, I'd appreciate that.

I use "White Lithium Grease WL-9". I found its consistency close to the oem grease used in the antenna mechanism. Bought the tube when was replacing the mast and sprocket.
