Hi everyone,

I have tried a few aftermarket ones (amazon, ebay etc...) but none seem to fit and/or work well. Is there a genuine stubby that will fit and work that I can buy somewhere?

I've searched the forum and there are so many reviews etc....

Does MB do one?

oh and please please please update your model year in your profile for us?

Vehicle: SLK 55 AMG

2004/5-2011?

First please update your vehicle (year?: 1996-2016) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

You mean stubby like this or less stubby like this ?
The last one is original MB, do a search here with facelift antenna and you'll find the partnr.
The first one is from the SL and it needs an extra antenna in the rear bumper. You will not get thta easily fixed on the SLK, without it reception is poor.

goes on real quick. use a towel wrapped around old to remove. you should have an antenna tool in your car



but if not, just pliers :D
