Due to the influence of solar UV rays, most plastic parts on the car are relatively quickly crippled. With Saab cars, this usually happens with a roof antenna.

The base of the antenna is metal, but the upper part is made of plastic-rubber and This part is usually, after about ten years, almost destroyed.

  • by the way it’s$ 10.40 0n amazon not 5.00 and does not look like the OEM it’s kind of carbon fibre looking (prob not real )

  • Bought one of these and was OK with the “carbon fiber” look. After trimming out the sticky bottom I slipped over antenna and it didn’t seat all the way down but felt it was OK. I just wanted to keep rain and wind noise out. It does create a lot of wind noise with cover gone. Since it did not seat properly my first drive the wind noise was eliminated but about 2 miles down the road I heard a thump on my deck lid. Looking in my review mirror I could see my new shark fin cover bouncing down the highway. $10 down the drain! I would like to find something that completely covers and fits tight to roof. Next time I will add some silicone to inside to adhere to metal of antenna.
