    yeah i did that same exact thing, i first started with it behind my fender but the reception was too great, and the antenna would tap against the metal back tehre.

    so i moved it to where you have urs now, and i personally think reception of the FM signal kinda dropped, i have barely a signal when i go through dover NH where i always had signal before

          1) remove plastic around top of door (5 torx screws) 1 in black plastic cover and 4 in the plastic along the top of the door 4th is hidden by black plastic cover)
          2) unscrew antenna (wrench)
          3) remove 10mm bolt closer to rear of car from bracket holding antenna
          4) rotate the bracket ~ 45أƒئ’أ¢â‚¬إ،أƒâ€?أ‚آ؛ counter clockwise (may have to loosen other 10mm bolt)
          5) screw antenna back in
          6) hide under plastic
          7) screw everything back together

          estimated time 15 minutes?
