Q: broken rubber antenna on 2002 Mercedes-Benz E320

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
my car cover broke the tip of my antenna off. What does this affect? and estimate to repair?
Can't tell you how mush,, this will only be available at the dealer. It may have an effect on the radio reception.
This is a common problem and has recently happened to me. The Benz dealer will want to sell you a whole antenna at a small fortune, but on ebay you can purchase an E320 antenna mast cover kit for around $35.00. This comes with a new rubber mast and a gasket for the base. All you need is a small allen wrench, remove antenna base from car, pull what is left of old rubber mast out of the base and using a dab of liquid soap for lubricant install new mast.
