Manual Antenna?

Hi there. Quick question. I have a w124 with built-in cell phone. the antenna is broken; as in no sound, no motor, etc. so i dont think just a mast is going to do it.

i need to know two things:

1) do I HAVE to get the special antenna that seems super expensive?

2) can i put a Manual antenna in the hole instead? If so, any recommendations?

I need to replace it, but as I just replaced the wiper tranny ( i do not want to spend hundreds for an antenna as well right now.

any help would REALLY be appreciated! thanks

From my experiance those 'universial' antenna's from you local mcparts dont sit at the angle of the rear panel where the oem antenna sits. So you may have a manual antenna that sticks out to the side rather then sit straight up. get a HIRSCHMANN manual antenna for the W124. Which is what i have. It sits straight up on the angled panel that the base mounts to.
