    I dont want to damage the paint or anything after all I went through to get my truck repaired.
    The car wash finally ripped the antenna apart and now its an eye sore.
    And since I cancelled Sirius more than a year ago, I dont need it anymore.

    Anyone done this? Whats the best way to remove it without fucking things up?

    Thanks!

    I'm suprised that Stern hasn't been shilling a product that could do that where he could line his pocket with more shekels.

    Didn't you just have the truck repainted? If they didn't remove it to paint the truck, it will never match.

    don't drive your car through an automated car wash if you care about the paint

    Heat up the glue that's holding it in place (I used a hair dryer), then use a spatula or something to sort of pry it loose.....you'll have to work at it but that did the trick for me.

    I have no idea if they removed it before painting.

    Maybe they did and maybe thats why the fucking thing is falling apart all of the sudden.

    99% of the aftermarket Sirius antennas are just held on with a strong magnet.

    Did you actually glue it on there or did someone else?
