BMW Shark Fin Antenna Cover Removal

August 31, 2010

Q
car year: 2008 car model: 328Xi Sedan How do I remove the shark fin antenna cover without damaging the roof top paint?

A
The “shark fin” antenna outer cover is glued to the roof. Some of the typical removal techniques involve using a heat gun to soften the glue (be careful of overheating the paint) and carefully prying up on the base of the cover with a plastic pry tool (protecting the roof paint with a cloth) and then cutting the adhesive with a razor knife.

    Try using fishing line, use it like a cheese cutter in a sawing action.
