    Not an Owner, but need some assistance

    Hello Optima Forums,

    Someone I know owns a 2014 Optima and they've recently run into an issue that I'm seeking some help with.

    They went through a car wash and their antenna broke off. Can't attach pictures just yet as my account needs a few more posts.

    I've seen a few places online selling a brand new antenna for ~$130. This seems a little pricey to me, so I wanted to sign up here and get opinions from other owners (or anyone who may have more knowledge on this than I do).

    It appears that it's just the housing that fell off, but she explained to me that the radio is not working.

    Researching (how I found these forums in the first place), I was able to find a similar issue in a thread on these forums (again, can't link just yet). Unfortunately, it doesn't really help in our unique situation.


    Can someone chime in on what we should do to fix this?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    When I tried posting I got an error saying I needed 5 posts before posting images/links, so I had edited my post only to find out the pictures ended up being posted.

    I also can't figure out how to edit to change my original post.

    I cannot post links yet since im new. But if you google Genuine Kia products. Then select the year of the car and go to electrical section and antenna it seems you can buy a replacement shark fin.
