Radio Antenna

Did somebody replace the radio roof antenna on a Solera 24R -its a 2013.
Mine came apart at the base - bits and pieces of a kind of a washer came out at the base, I guess over torqued during installation.
I do not know whether the antenna cable is screwed on at the base or permamently attached to it...if it is attached I have a problem. There must be an extension cable going to the dash - but that connections is hidden behind the fridge - or does anybody know where to find it?
Anybody (BC?) knows the manufacturer of the antenna?

I posted something on this a while back. One guy had one where the sealant was twisted...had the same question. I answered it then...but don't remember what my answer was. I think I even took a picture of the antenna. Let me do some searching.

Thanks for the reply! But that did not help much...
I need to find out whether the antenna cable unscrews from the antenna itself (accessible behind the microwave) which I don't believe,
or where the connection of the antenna cable and extension (going to the dash) is hidden. Is there any way to find out , maybe calling the factory?????Please??

Here is the antenna. It pushes on, with a screw on nut to keep it in place. The splice is typically made in the fridge or microwave cabinet depending on length.

that is great - thank you very much!

That means the antanna cable is screwed on at the base. Those are good news - because the "splice" is hidden behind the fridge....so now its an easy replacement! Would you happen to know the manufacturer of the antenna?
