That little thing on the roof

Postby Wibble » Mon Jun 05, 2017 3:08 pm

Okay I give up. What is that little fin thing on the back part of the roof of some Mustangs ? All google queries lead to an old news story about somebody parking their car on the roof of a house.

Also, how possible is it to remove the roof stripe ? I shopping for nearly new, and so many of them have the stripe, which I am not keen on.

Do you mean the 'shark fin'? It's a GPS/Satellite radio antenna - only on US models though I believe?

As standard it comes with a 'puck' style, but you can get a 'shark fin' cover for it which is in vogue.

Thanks Stig. A satnav receiver? It is visible on many UK cars, eg this one

You might have to click on the rear view pic and zoom in.

Also that car would be my ideal except for the stripe.

It's a satalite recieved for sync 3, it's not on some cars that were MY15/16 cars. The My17 have the roof "nipple" :lol:
