there's no need to use the adapters. just unscrew your old antenna and the new one will screw on in its place no problem.

i got the same one. it came with like 3 or 4 adapters (can't remember) and after unscrewing the old antenna, i looked at the adapter, then at the bottom of the shorty antenna. tossed the adapter on the ground and screwed the antenna directly onto the car no problem, no adapter.

i put it on a grand prix and my camaro and it screwed right on, but for some reason, the stud on my cobalt is larger than the other cars. i'm totally perplexed. i'm just gonna use that on the camaro and drill/tap an element antenna i think.

antennax said that some 06 models had a different antenna, so i was right. mine is 7mm x 1.00 and the others are 6mm x 1.00.

go to www.antennax.com and follow the links to cobalt and find the eurostyle short antenna
