Stock antenna replacement

Tue Jul 14, 2020 4:58 pm

I have noticed my stock antenna is cracked and deteriorating rapidly. (Rubber(?) is drying out badly.
Has anyone replaced theirs with a OEM Mitsubishi antenna? How about availability and cost?

I have no idea what the dealer would want for one, but you can buy a new one on eBay for ~$70 ... SwA3dYQGcH

Years ago I picked up a universal replacement antenna with lots of threaded adapters, one of which fit the i-MiEV. IIRC, it was under $10 at my local auto parts store. Just looked on eBay and Amazon and there are some there. I once tried to put on a longer one to improve FM reception, but it was too long for the height of my garage door.
