    When I bought my truck, I noticed that the previous owner had installed satellite radio in the truck. When he sold it, he of course took the radio with him, leaving me with the wires sticking out from the side of the dash (which can be hidden easily) and the big black circle antenna right above the windshield. I discovered that the antenna itself is actually a magnet that can be pulled off easily, but the wire looks like it goes down into the windshield. My first thought was to just pull it out, but I didn't in fear that it would cause some sort of conflict with the windshield.

    Have any of you had this (I guess you could call it a problem..) problem? If so, how did you take care of it? I want that antenna gone, but only if it'll come off without doing damage.

    You should be able to find the loose plug somewhere under the radio. If your not reusing it cut the wire and pull if from the antenna end so you don't have to fish it.
