If the vehicle has roof racks or skid ribs, it may be necessary to mount the antenna off-center.
If the vehicle roof does not provide sufficient metal surface area then the antenna can be mounted on the metal trunk lid at least 4" from the rear window.
(autIDn: DO NOT INSTALL ANTENNA INSIDE VEHICLE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT. Mounting the antenna in the passenger com partment either on the front dash board or on the rear win dow deck area of the vehicle may interfere with reception and must be avoided.
Mounting the antenna on a non-metallic surface will also re sult in severe degradation in reception.
If an appropriate antenna mounting location cannot be identified, contact your local distributor installation department for additional guidance.
1. Once you have mounted the antenna in the correct location, plan how to route the cable from this location to the receiver, avoiding blocked passages and any obstructions that could kink, crimp, twist or chafe the cable. If the cable will come in contact with a rough metal opening, use a rubber grommet to prevent damage.
