Where is the UConnect antenna?

Did a search without results. Uconnect Customer Service said antenna was unplugged and take it in to the dealer. If I knew where the antenna is I could plug it back in myself.

Re: Where is the UConnect antenna?

which antenna?

the radio and cellular antennas plug in to the back of the radio. Basically you yank the bezel off around the radio (held on with spring clips so prys right off and goes back on). Then there are 4 screws to remove. Then the whole radio will pull out. There's a big wiring harness and then a bunch of coax connectors for the various external antennas. there's youtube videos of pulling the radio floating around.

From what i understand the bluetooth antenna is built inside the radio itself so probably would be a bigger deal and might want the dealer involved to avoid warranty issues of taking apart the radio.

there's also a whole other key antenna system for remote start and all that but i'm guessing your having a radio or cellular data issue?

(also i think i've seen that there are connections on the back of the rooftop antenna. Maybe those are in the roof liner? sorry dont know myself)

Were you able to locate the antenna? I'm upgrading from the base radio head unit to the RA4. I picked up this unit:

Apparently I am missing one of the antenna components and cannot figure out which part I need to allow the factory antenna wire coiled up behind the dash to fully function. I suspect I'm missing the antenna components in the shark fin.

I'd also appreciate information on removing the shark fin.
