Does anybody ever remove the antenna anymore when going through a car wash? Maybe not since the invention of the touch-less car wash. However, a few places still hold on to the old-fashioned, break-your-antenna-right-off style car washes.
Actron’s universal antenna wrench fits most antenna bezel nuts and supposedly won’t damage them whether they’re on a foreign or domestic vehicle. The steel antenna wrench can be found for as little as $10. This wrench would be a great courtesy tool for them to have on a rope right outside the entrance to the old-style car washes. Failing that, you could throw it in your glove box for the next time you run into one of these places.
