    Ok I was read the shark fin just pops off no way it does so I decided to dig in and see what the hell hold this thing on. Here are some pics to help others not damage there interior trying to remove the Shark fin. (remove at your own risk) I am posting this just for reference because I read quite a few times that it just pops off IT WILL NOT POP OFF!

    1. Remove the plastic piece in the center for the 3rd brake light it is held in with 3 clips pull down easy and it will pop off ( be carful it is bolted to the headliner) and 1 Clip on each side on headliner between the 3rd brake light and R&L side to drop the rear headliner about 3".

    2. Remove the plastic piece by removing the 2 nuts left side of the car and just loosen the middle on and the 2 right ones. Remove cover from headliner.

    3. Get a 10mm wrench and remove the bolt holding the SF in place I placed blue tape to keep it in place. And off comes the Shark Fin.

    Well done. I knew it just doesn't pop off since the car can reach ballistic missile speeds... The freeway would have them all over the place. :p

    I just removed it to see how much a pain it was. I'm going to have the roof done in satin black and then reinstall it. I will post when it's done

    Thanks, good information. In another thread, it was revealed that the Challenger and Charger are two different antennas. Charger pops off, the Challenger DOES NOT...this should help avoid damage.

    They can't wrap it in one piece so leave it white or use plastidip spray satin black. Not sure going to see what it looks like white
