The other day a buck ran right into the side of my SL500. Luckily the only damage was the plastic around the little stubby antenna - both base and cap. I bought a replacement and thought pull the interior trunk panel and easy fix - wrong. So the first question - is the best access to this unit through the trunk or am I better off accessing it by removing the rear inner fender plastic? I tried to get a look by prying the trunk formed carpet cover away (removal of said cover involves disconnecting the trunk lid armature which I am not ready to do if it does not grant me access) and there appears to be a metal plate still blocking access from this direction. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
