    So... I originally ordered a car with a black roof, but my order never got built. I bought a white charger (no black roof) and wanted to wrap it black. But I was not about to let some wrap tech try to figure out how to remove the antenna. Another forum member sent me the official Dodge "how to," and it said to remove the entire headliner. (Thanks, fnkychkn!)

    With some patience and luck, I figured it out (and it is pretty simple).

    1. Remove the passenger side rear door seal from the top of the door (door is open obviously). Just pull lightly.

    2. Remove the handle/light above the door using a plastic trim remover to find the torx fasteners.

    3. Use a T30 bit (have your girlfriend hold it for the pic), and remove these bolts.

    Pic missing.

    4. Let the handle assembly hang.

    5. Remove the c-pillar cover from the top sides. Work your finger under gently and find the top friction clips and pull one loose on each side near the top. The clips have a band to keep it on when the airbag deploys. Make sure you are near the clip when pulling or it could bend/crease the c-pillar cover.

    Pics missing.

    6. Then, unclip three friction clips on the headliner in the center (near the third brake light). They look like this (green in pic).

    7. On each side of the three green clips, are another clip you will need to pull down to get the room to work.

    8. Now, you can see the shark fin wire harness and single screw (10mm), which is just beyond the black plastic look grill in the pic below. It was too tight to get a clear pic.

    9. This is the bolt and fin removed.

    10. Last, when you remove the fin (you will need two people). Someone has to pull from the top (light pressure) while the other pushed in some plastic spring clips on a plastic retainer (the wires run through it) in order to pull antenna free. It is in the pic above just below the bottom of the fin. It fit through the hole perfectly, so you must line it up.

    11. Re-installation is the reverse. I will post pics of the wrapped roof by the end of the week.

    Thanks, enjoy, and good luck.

    I was able to blow up one off angle photo and get it. The following numbers are on the label from the top (and left to right down):

    P88239818AA 801180 0075

    40908H

    81038-A

    150234400100 (this one may not be 100% right)

    I posted pix of the numbers on the box for my charger pitch black shark antenna in an earlier post, if you need, I can shoot a new pic of the box and repost with numbers.
