An hour ago, I was backing out of our garage, and I heard a terrible scraping sound. Cursing loudly, I stopped and pulled forward. I got out to investigate the situation, and there was the antenna whip sitting on the ground. For some reason, the garage door had not opened all the way; I hadn't noticed and the garage door caught the top of the C Max. In addition to the broken antenna, there were a few minor scrapes on the top of our gorgeous shiny Sterling Gray car, which we just bought 2 weeks ago! So, before I tell my wife about this (she ain't gonna be happy!), I need some information.
The black antenna box on the top of the car to which the whip was attached is unharmed and still tightly attached, but the whip snapped off at the bolt--there is no bolt to grab and unscrew. Can I still replace the antenna whip myself? Or is this a dealer-only repair? If dealer, any idea of the cost? I imagine I'll have to call a dealer to find that out; just wondered if anyone had any idea.
That'll teach me to look before I drive!!!
