Just installed a CD3 shark fin antenna on my 2013 FFH SE.  We had previously noticed that the Ice Storm color, which is essentially light blue, has a greenish tint in certain lighting conditions.  After installing the antenna, it appeared to have a greenish tint while the rest of the car was blue.  I finally figured out that it's all to do with the light reflection.  The top of the car is flat, while the antenna has rounded corners, thus reflecting light differently.  Move to the other side of the car and the antenna matches perfectly.  We love it.

Ok I was wanting to get this for my FFH but my local ford dealer said it would be $540 to install it. It's sure not worth paying that much. OUCH.

That's their "we don't want to do it" price.

 

It is easy to install.

 

1. Unscrew the existing antenna.

2. Connect the cable from the new antenna to the antenna stub on the car.

3. Glue the new antenna to the roof.

 

The hard part was positioning the antenna where I wanted it.  I solved that by taking a piece of thick cardboard and placing the new antenna on it.  I then drew a line around the base of the shark fin.  I cut the cardboard on the line.  I could now place the antenna in the hole in the cardboard.  I put them on the roof of the car with the cable connected to the car.  When the antenna was positioned where I wanted it, I taped the cardboard to the roof.  I removed the antenna and applied the glue to the antenna.  I carefully placed the antenna in the opening in the cardboard and pressed down to fix it into place.  I then removed the cardboard.  That was in 2013 or 2014. It's still where I put it.

A local detailer/accessories installer installed mine for $20. Took him a few minutes.

This dealer had no idea what they were talking about and just quoted you some random price. These are very simple to install. 30 min at most if done on your own.

Even if they were installing a factory one where you have to go under the headliner it wouldn't be 540 in labor.

I used painters tape to line up where the new cover goes then installed it. Took about 15 minutes. Super easy
