need advice (help). the antenna connection at the rear hatch is broken off in my '97. I've been able to connect the wire in a semi- permanent manner. It has however fallen off a few times.

If I uncover the antenna module, can I substitute a mast antenna connection to replace the rear window connection. will this help the reception.

Short of replacing the window or trying to find someone to fix the connection on the window, I thought I'd take a different approach. Since 97 is the only C5 with a window antenna, has anyone tried to change it out to a mast antenna on the back fender?
I've looked around through the internet for a conversion kit to no avail. can anyone out there help with a solution. I think a '98-'04 antenna with a shorty stub would be the answer.

HELP !!!!
