thanks!!

Thanks to you op the installation of the new base and shorty antena I received from cfm yesterday went pretty smoothly. Has anyone broken the cfm billet antena while sweeping snow and some of the other things that caused the stock one to break? Seems like a pretty sturdy peice to me....thanks again op cheers!

Thanks for this excellent instructional. I replaced a busted Focus antenna yesterday using this guide.

Two differences in my case:

1) One of the dome light connections would not come loose, hard as I pulled. So I left the light hanging and worked around it.

2) If you have a helper, it may be unnecessary to completely remove the screw holding the antenna base to the roof. I gradually unscrewed the screw while she gently wiggled the old base until she could pull it loose. The screw remained in place, held by its black plastic collar. Hence I didn't have to worry about keeping track of a washer, reconnecting the antenna, etc. Unscrew the old base JUST until the base is loose, and the screw should stay in place, held by the plastic piece.
