Antenna Rubber Grommet

760 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  visman
When I took my 560SL in for service last month the manager pointed out I was missing the rubber grommet for the antenna mast. I never noticed it missing - quick easy fix - around $10 on eBay, remove the antenna from the trunk (boot), soapy water on grommet and push in - reinstall antenna. Thought I would share in case anyone else never noticed - I went back and looked at photos from last year and sure enough there was no grommet - how in the world did I miss that?

Just did mine this weekend. PO had not noticed and trunk was wet when I got it. No rust thank goodness.

Only 12 bucks and 15 minutes to install, I’ll take it even if it only lasts 5 years to keep the trunk dry.
