Installing an OEM Nissan Shark Fin Antenna

Post by syneman » Mon Dec 23, 2019 9:33 am

Hello,
I'm considering purchasing an original shark fin antenna (used) for my Pulsar. I see the OEM fin has a connector cable that I assume would hook up to the existing antenna cable that lies between the car roof and the roof interior panel. If it's like this, I am wondering if anyone has the experience to get access to this antenna under the roof interior? I mean how to get the roof interior down a bit so I can remove and replace the antenna? I'm not so interested in these cheap Chinese antennas that go on with 3M tape unless somebody can guide me to a good link to buy one that is actually good.
Thanks

As far as I remember somewhere you'll have to remove the roof interior from the back by pulling out two plugs that keep it with the roof.
I wonder how good this antenna would be.
Any link or part number where to buy it? From the photo I see it's from a J11 Nissan Qashqai.

Bought mine off ebay £30, connects directly to existing mount then glues in place works perfectly.. Did wonder if GPS and DAB would work correctly so tried everything before sticking the down the fin.. Not had any problems to date.

Nice to hear. I believe GPS and DAB work off different antennas and lines. I will maybe have to grab one.
