Looks good B.  :cool:  I wonder if the part is different for an 07? I'll check with my local Chevy Man AKA Mr. SpikeAV   :4:

Let me know if you hear anything, I never listen to FM anyways, but it would be nice to keep it just in case!

I will go out and lay the antenna down this week, if I don't loose much FM reception I will order that part!

You're in a flat area, should be little or no change if you simply removed the antenna. Relocating it will make most difference in cities or other obstructed areas plus give you more reception distance.

I just went out and relocated my antenna! I never even used the L bracket as suggested (do I need it for a ground, radio seems to play fine withoput it)..........I just laid it down, put one tie tab near the center of the antenna and then placed a custom cut piece of black dense cell foam under the antenna in a couple of places...it don't move! Now to get that new part ordered!

THANKS FOR THIS MOD! The antenna was always in the way when trying to wash the windshield, change wiper blades etc..........

I just went back out and made up a ground strap for the antenna. I noticed that my radio when I hit seek did not pick up near as many stations after I laid it down. With the ground strap it is back to normal. I did break one of the clips off of the panel when taking it off today so i just left it off......hope the new one gets here soon! Has anyone ordered parts from partszoneonline.com and how was their shipping? I don't seem to be able to track it yet............ ::)

For others considering ordering the part.

I ordered from our site partner VanDevere was $8 and change and they are combining with a previous order so no additional shipping.  They shipped with tracking via UPS the next day.

Another site partner is DeLillo.

Both sell at 10% over dealer cost plus shipping for CAFCNA, and that way we support our site partners.

I cheated :4:.  Ordered it from the dealership (via a buddy of mine).  No shipping  :1: just gotta make a 4 mile round trip to pick it up.  Of course, the way gas prices are . . . shipping may be cheaper.  Oh well, gives me an excuse to BS with him for an hour or so . . . it not like he actually works when he's there.

I ordered mine on Monday from the link provided in the first post. There is no tracking info available yet on their site so I just sent them a email. If I don't hear from them that it has shipped by Tuesday I will cancel the order and try Van Devere. I am afraid they will be short on stock soon! :P

Got my part from VanDevere via UPS in 2 days! Very happy with the service.

Thanks for the mod idea.  I'll report how/iff the reception is affected after the mod.

Nope. I will give them until this afternoon to answer my email and then call. They provide UPS tracking on their website, small packages like this part may be sent through the mail but they should state that.
