I have an 09 S with the standard antenna. The Satelite reception is fine but the AM/FM reception is terrible. I have seen the old style antennas on other corollas and wondered if anyone had ever swapped to the older version to improve radio reception.

The AM/FM antenna is in the glass on the 2009 Corolla. You'd have to do some modifications to add an antenna outside of the glass.

Perhaps one from a Matrix may work? Not sure.

I finally realized that the antenna was in the glass while I was looking at all the little bubbles my tint has in it.

I have given my dealer 3 chances to do the job right and they couldn't pull it off so they authorized me to take it where I wanted and have it done. My buddy told me he needed to put ceramic tint on the back because of it.

Hate to jump off topic, but did your dealer charge you for their "work"?

I paid for the tinting as part of the purchase price. The three chances I gave them to fix it they did not charge me and gave me a loaner while they tried.
