Antenna

Hi, Is it possible to change the roof antenna,because if I go to the car wash the dryer hit the antenna and if I go to an indoor parking ( shopping center) the antenna hit the pipes on the sealing.
I know the Silverado have a small antenna.
Thanks

Re: Antenna

From what I have read on other forums, the antenna sticking up out of the "shark fin" is used for FM and is not really that effective. I keep meaning to remove the "whip" portion and compare reception. The antenna just unthreads from the base. I have been removing my truck antenna for years when I enter or know Iím going to be entering a low ceiling area.

Re: Antenna

PS to antenna problem. At home I had to adjust the door to travel further up the track to get it horizontal. If we pull in centered on the door, the bracket in the center of door hits the antenna. Solution, we park a few inches off of center. (That's what the sun roof is for).

Re: Antenna

"SHARK FIN" being a generic term for the stock antenna base shape. Don't read into subject matter that which is not contained. If there is an antenna called Shark Fin I apologize. By the way, fm reception today was no differrent without the whip. Open highway in Ohio River Valley.

Re: Antenna

I received my custom (Merlot Red) Shark Fin II antenna yesterday.
I installed it per the enclosed instructions from Visualgarage.com and it looks great and performs well!
I'll post some pictures soon.
Right now the weather is pretty crappy here in NE OH, snowing.

Here it is December 11th and a balmy 40 degrees!
Attached are the pics of my Mark II Shark Fin Antenna.
It works as well as the Terrain's OEM antenna!

Re: Antenna

Which part# did you order?
On the website they don't have the Chevy Equinox in the pull down menu for a part to select.
I'd like to get one.

Re: Antenna

I got mine from Visualgarage, I didn't have a chance to install it yet.
It looks real nice, if you want a picture of it not installed let me know.

I sent Visualgarage an email about the antenna for my 2010 Terrain, this is the emailI received from them:

Our pre-released Mark II VG shark fin antenna is compatible with your 2010 GMC Terrain. For more information, pictures and how to order, please see the email below.
