Well at least your Ford Dealer didn't steal your shorty antenna, MINE DID. Hey, they replaced it with a long one. I say whatever the radio reception is better.

Well the bad word is in. I was e-mailed back with this ;

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your inquiry.

We've had other Focus owners email us in the past, and unfortunately, at this time we aren't able to fit our antenna to the Focus as a replacement antenna because of the roofline in the front of the car and the placement of the antenna base near the front windshield. But you are right, we have had some Focus owners use our sharkfin as a decorative piece only, and mount it on the rear of the roof where the sharkfins are normally located.

Any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Regards,
Arthur

Hi all,
Got a email back also from that company and it is the same BS that they wrote to surgeo1919. I'm still looking for one 'cause there's no BS holding me back, and I'll make the damn thing stick on there. I'm off these next two days and I'll be shopping around for this sharky. Let you all know how it works out.
Paul.

I realize this post might be dead now, but I have to let you know that i also had the same situation go wrong with my car and I was directed to this link! Just incredible to know that there are so many other people with the same problem, and the same response from Ford. I also had a situation with my windshield wiper arms being disconnected from the motor due to the ice that built up underneath the cowl. It wasn't my week, that's for sure!

Cool Little post udate

Hi all, time has gone by, beeing busy and what not. Kinda forgot about it all but take a look at this. Put a new antenna base on car, chopped antenna and since reception went down added something extra. Take a look:





See you all around on site.
