    Can the shark fin antenna covers be ordered? I can't find a part number. The only ones I can find online are "dummy" shark fins on ebay. I am looking for a true OEM shark fin, painted pitch black, or unpainted. Thanks in advance!

    Just order a new cover from a dealer. They don't cost that much.

    I'll try that again. My dealer said I needed a part number. I assume he was just lazy and didn't want to look it up himself. Thanks.

    i know the challengers come with wiring I think its like 80.00 or so in the color you want. the chargers are around 30.00 in the color options you want and its is just the cover

    Awesome! Thanks for all of the info! The P/N really helps. The info about the wiring is helpful, as this will be a permanent replacement. I'm planning on wrapping my roof black, and don't want a silver shark fin on top. But I'm afraid to have my original one painted, in case I eventually take the wrap off. I didn't realize the Charger had a separate cover, and the challenger was a complete unit.

    HB, your part number saved the day. Just got it ordered for $30, and should be here in a few days. Thanks again!

    So the antenna arrived today, and it's a little different than I expected. Based on the looks of it, I'm pretty confident the shark fin can be removed without unbolting the main part of the antenna. It looks like it just snaps into place. Has anyone removed just the "cover" (which appears to include the cell antenna), without removing the rest of the antenna? Here's a photo of the underside of the cover. You can see the 4 spots where it just looks like it snaps into place.

    Yep, just popped off, protect the surface paint with a rag or something. Had it wrapped to match and popped back on

    Does that mean you pried it off with a trim tool or a screwdriver or something? I rocked it back and forth a few times and couldn't get it to pop off. The roof was flexing quite a bit (it seems quite thin). I might just follow the suggestions of that other post and unbolt it from the inside. I'd be devastated if I dented the roof.

    Yes, it didn't seem to that hard. From the photo, it looks like the same cover. If it is not popping off, I would not press the issue. The other way going from the under side is the safer way. Sorry for late answer, was out enjoying my HC over the weekend.
