are you sure these directions go to the 2000 dodge-chrysler (minivan) caravan, i ask this because i snapped the antenna off, and there is no cap nut on top of the adapter.
that adapter is really hardened plastic, and unable to remove from the top.

Should be but send the vin# XXXXX I will double check
