While I had the sun/moon roof assembly off I noticed water condensation around the inside of the roof below the antenna. After looking at it & verifying it wasn't loose, I noticed that after the usual wear tear & the especially from the sun eventually cracking the area around the antenna mast. There were cracks all around. It was cracked & faded the Sirius/XM antenna circuit board had water damage & corrosion that a couldn't desolder safely. Went to my local junk/salvage yard bought same antenna for $15. Sanded, brushed 2 part epoxy outside & inside of cover especially at the screw in mast. let it dry for 2 days then rustoleum spray painted (for plastics) gloss black. Cut the antenna mas to 3 in & painted with rustoleum truck bed bed coating. View attachment 79307 View attachment 79308
