    Routing the Cable Figure 6 illustrates a typical method of routing the antenna cable. • Avoid kinking, crimping, twisting, or chafing the cable. If the cable comes into contact with a rough metal open- ing, use a rubber grommet to prevent damage.

    If the antenna cable does not fit easi- ly through the grommet, do not try to force it through; instead, route the cable under the weather seal near the bottom of the door. • For antennas mounted at the rear of the roof, route the cable into the trunk as shown in figure 7.
