Hi guys,

I bought a shark antenna from ebay for my koup. And I haven't equipped it yet, since I don't know if I just need to go ahead and with any tool nthat can lift something, I can go about just extracting the roof antenna using my strenghth. Being followed up by patching the area with the shark anthena and I'm good to go.

Appreciated all your insights on this guys,

Uuuhh you just need to unscrew the giant unicorn antenna and connect the wire from the sharkifin antenna into the base and then you put the sharkfin over the base. Don't need to take the whole thing

The thing is that the sharkfin antenna doesn't fit over the base of the stock antenna. So i need to take the stock antennas base off. Is that easily accomplished by just using force to detach it.

Ok, lets say I don't even use the raidio for AM FM or Sirius. I just want the shark fin antenna. Is there an easy way for me to just pull the stock antenna off with base and all?

ok if you got it from seller automotiveapple or something like that it is just a dummy antena and wont fit. I ordered from him thinking it would be a slip over and was not. Best thing to do is cut the sharkfin in half and reshape and widen it with fiberglass smooth and re-paint and it should fit over.

U actually need to email them directly and tell them you need a markII for the Kia forte and your color code.

That's how we all had to do it.

roof antenna mount

hello
My antenna was broke off. Not sure how it happened. It broke off the actual antenna and broke part of the mount. How do I remove the actual mount that is mounted to the roof??
