I'm going to black out the roof on my MKC and I need to know if anyone knows how to remove the shark fin antenna on the MKC?
Does it just pull off or does it require removal from inside the headliner?

Thanks

Dealer told me that when the new antenna is ready (to fix the intermittent Sirius radio reception problem) the back of the headliner will need to be dropped. So I wouldn't try to pull it off. Hope this helps.

I agree it is weird they didn't do black roof and black A pillars like everyone else is doing, it looks much more sporty for some reason. As for how to remove the antenna you normally do just remove the double side tape to take them off. That said I probably wouldn't bother, anyone good at wrapping can do it just as good with the antenna still on on the car, it's pretty easy to cut tight against.

I have the Chilton's manual subscription for the month, and it looks like:

AUDIO UNIT ANTENNA
Removal
NOTE:Removal steps in this procedure may contain installation details.
Lower the rear of the headliner. Refer to: Headliner - Lowering(501-05 Interior Trim and Ornamentation, Removal and Installation).
Remove the retainer and audio unit antenna and harness through the roof opening.
Disconnect the electrical connectors. Torque: 62 lb.in (7 Nm)

a recipe for something to go wrong, agree that a good shop can wrap around the antenna
