I seem to have lost the antenna off the back of my C-Max. The bottom portion doesn't seem to be damaged, just that I'm missing the short antenna that sticks up out of it. I haven't looked real closely but, at first glance, it appears that the antenna wire screws into the bottom portion. Of course, there is a wire wrapped around that antenna, so I'm curious if anyone knows if that wire needs to be connected somewhere?
Does anyone know exactly how hard that wire is to replace? If nothing is otherwise damaged, can the antenna just be screwed back into the hole or is there something more detailed -- particularly am I seeing wrong and it doesn't screw. And is there a wire that needs to be connected, or is it "connected" merely by the antenna being put back in?

Couple of months ago I replaced my antenna with Ford OEM part. The antenna connects via the screw threads. There is no separate connection for the wire wrapped around the antenna.

the antenna just screws back into the housing.

The wire is there for aerodynamic reasons. It breaks up the round profile. Very common.
