Antennae Wiring

Okay, so my antennae was stolen. I mean, it was ripped out of the body, and the wire was cut. So I want to get a new antennae, but am not sure how to deal with the wiring. I'm looking at replacements but they're showing a long wire that looks like it might go to the radio? Is there a "port" in the rear of the car that I can go locate and take out my now cut wire, and just plug the new one in? Or do I need to splice and solder...?

Its a 2006 Cobalt LS.

I broke mine off last year and the only connection I say was on the bracket, when they took it did was the bracket still connected in the trunk?

Sorry to hear that I don't even get why anyone would do that. I think beyond the antenna bracket the wire goes all the way up to the radio. You should be able to solder on the new wire nothing special about antenna wire. Hope you can get the body damaged fixed too.

You are going to need a new mount, rubber antenna bezel, mast and the antenna wire. The long wire they are showing runs from your trunk up to the passenger side of the dash where it connects to the dash portion of the antenna wire. If you pop off the dash end cap on the passenger side, you'll see a yellow air bag connector and the antenna connector.

Cheapest bet would be to hit the bone yard and take what you need. I bet they'd charge like $5.

I've considered completely removing it if I ever need body work done in that area. I'd just put in a Cruze antenna on the roof. It handles am/fm and XM radio all in one piece.
