Hmm...just notice in the manual it suggests to take off the antenna before going into carwash. Wouldn't water get stuck in the hole :eek: ??

I dont use touchless or them other ones:)

Its a reminder if you go through the ones with the Big rollers that roll over youre hood & roof to remove it. You can always put tape on the hole.

Touchless you just drive through.

All you need to do is unscrew the actual antenna part. The 'base' stays on the roof... so no 'hole'. This can be done by hand (no tools and it shouldn't be 'too tight') and it's a quick and painless way to make sure you don't end up with a really nasty dent in the roof as the auto-washes can hit the whip and actually damage the metal roof with it.
