HELP!!! Antenna removal ???
 
Okay, so I'm buying a Thule box today and want to install my sharkfin antenna. The instructions say to "remove the old antenna". Okay?, I unscrewed the mast, but how do I get the base off? Does the base unscrew from the roof? What am I missing

Thanks,
Jim

I haven't installed the sharkfin, so i could be wrong on this. I thought the sharfin plugged into the OEM base and simply went over it.

Dogface is correct, only thing removed for sharkfin is mast, then SF pigtail mounts to mast bolthole with provided bolt and entire SF covers OEM base.

How easy is it to get it off/on? The thing is, if I end up buying a WK2, I would have to get rid of the antenna on the way home, because the thing wont fit in my garage! :)
Will it look very ugly driving without the antenna? Does anyone have pictures? I am guessing I would probably order sharkfin after getting the jeep, or just in case if I don't get it in time.

Mate it just unscrews by hand, it is very easy to remove the mast.

Thanks, I just found the topic where he posted pictures of it, although he doesn't have the one with mast off but it seems easy enough. Isn't there anyway to bend the antenna? I mean the least they could have done was to offer a foldable antenna so we could actually fold it if needed.

Jim,

did you receive an answer as to how to remove the base from the roof?

I saw somewhere that to remove the base you have to remove the headliner. But again the sharkfin sits on top.
