Q: Shark fin issues on the optima.

asked by on

My shark fin blew off my 2016 optima

My car has 13000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Some of these "shark fins" are just for aesthetics and others may be the antenna for the radio and gps if applicable. These units can be ordered fro the dealer and installed either at the dealer or by a third party installer as these units do not usually require programming. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can handle all of the leg work for you and come out to repair your antenna.
