Question SLK230 1998 Antenna wire (NEED HELP FINDING AN END)

Hey guys, so I've been having trouble with a wire that is supposed to connect from the antenna to the amplifier at the back of my vehicle. I tried to take it to places like autozone and o'reilly and they basically told me "this is a peculiar part and i wish you luck on your search because we have NOTHING like this alien thing." When I tried to even look for it online all I got was the whole antenna base which was a ridiculous $160, and i'm not paying that price. So overall, is there any place anywhere that i can get a full size cable or the end to fix the one I have? I'll send images to help. Thank you guys.

Hello again, so I tried the link and the website isn't giving me much to work with. I'm trying to find my wire myself but maybe I'm blind and just can't find it. Anyways if you go back in our private pm you should find my data card, do you think you could find it?

Sorry let me try to make more sense. See I'm only trying to find the wire piece that's attached to the base and I've tried some links but it just gives me the item information that leads me back to point A. Also I didn't mean to seem so demanding if i did in my last response, I just wasn't thinking properly.

Anyways I'm only looking for that wire for the bottom base and I can't find it where! I've tried my VIN information, no junk yard has it in my area, all the newer ones are like over $160 bucks and all I want is the wire part.

if there is no 'separate' part number seen in my pic or in the attached parts list, it is not sold separately

Looks like you're starting in exactly the same place I did a year ago.

No better place!

So I found a fix! Only due to luck though. See when I got fed up with the car I decided to completely remove the back and see what I could do as an alternative. What I was not expecting is to find some missing parts! When I took everything out and tried to diagnose the problem with the amplifier, I noticed some pieces for the wire fell all the way down in the dark abyss of the bumper. (The pieces fell inside the bumper). What I can conclude is that the previous owner was messing with it and the pieces just simply fell down there and he never even bothered with it. So anyways, I took the cable end piece and clamped it on the end of the wire so I KNOW it wont go anywhere and then i put the plastic piece back on that keeps the wire in place. Now i did have to make the cable a tad bit shorter because the connection was worn but once the contacts were fine and everything got into place, my radio sounded perfect! picked up radio stations that I could never pick up when I bought it!

So advice for others, CHECK THE BOTTOM BIT OF THE BUMPER THAT THE AMPLIFIER IS ON, PIECES MIGHT HAVE FALLEN! Otherwise idk what so say. Parts for the amplifier are INSANE!

Anyways, just wanted to say it got fixed and everything is fine on my end , Cheers, and thanks for the assistance!
