Ok, so I just got my BAJA roof rack (the one that mounts directly to the roof not the OEM roof rack) anyway, the rear of the rack is resting on my shark fin XM antenna. The antenna is preventing the rack from engaging the mounting brackets. I plan on calling BAJA Racks Wed; however, I am not sure what they can do about it. The rack would need to be raised about 1" with spacers to clear the antenna. I would like to just move the antenna back about 1" and the rack can sit flush just fine.
So looking at the antenna I do not see any easy way to remove it. I need to know if I have to remove the interior head liner to get to it or is it just held on with double sided tape like the badges were???
Another option would be to simply cut the tip of the shark fin off, then refinish it with fiberglass and repaint it but this would also require it to be removed.
Any help would be appreciated
here is a picture of the fin and rack. I currently have the rack sitting on some foam until I get this worked out.
