I lhave an 08, and was wondering how difficult it is to change the antenna to the newer "fin" version. Is it as simple as buying one from Cadillac parts, and popping the old one off and refitting new one? Or, do you have to drop headliner??? Thanks for any help.

I've done mine and posted a write-up with all the necessary instructions. It isn't quite as easy as popping the old one off and attaching the new one, but is is most certainly achievable.

There are links in each thread pointing to the other part.

I did find those links after searching around. I should have looked before I posted my thread. When I read the part about having to cut the metal and then having to check for water leaks, I figured I'm not going to attempt it.

Thanks
