A non working power antenna can be very frustrating. Those original Hirschmann antennas are really quite reliable. They usually fail through neglect and lack of lubrication. But sometimes they just fail due to old age.
Keeping your throttle linkage ball sockets and pivot point lubricate extends the life of the parts and maintains top performance for the engine as well as some of the later transmissions.

Yes the universal Hirschman antenna will work in your 124 chassis SEDAN ONLY from 1988 to 1993 ( 260E, 300E, 300D 2.5, 400E). BUT getting it installed so it looks good and does not leak is a whole different matter!!.
The Hirschman Universal Antenna is the best economical solution to a failed factory power antenna. They are reliable and not as complicated as the originals.
