Default Antenna issues

Today I recieved my stubby antenna the dealer said would fit my year of PT upon trying to install it has gotten me baffled I think I'm either missing a part or have recieved the wrong antenna

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

1. You believed the dealer/salesman.

2. Your pictures didn't show up so it's hard to make an opinion.

OK, Does it attach to the antenna wire that comes up through the hole in the fender? It has some universal fittings to help you with that BUT, the antenna itself (if I'm looking at it right) doesn't have the kind of end that fits around the base as most replacement antennas do. However, if the first picture is the finished product and the antenna is attached to the wire and is a solid mount, then I'd say it's good to go. Looks different, but maybe that's what it's supposed to look like?

The new one doesn't attach to the antenna wire and won't screw in at all

the picture with the antenna attached is the Stock antenna before removal

My thoughts:
Existing antenna was replace from the OEM. It seems to be a telescoping or power antenna. All PT Cruisers have a fix antenna. Which you can replace just the mast. The new antenna would screw into the OEM base which is missing in the pictures. You would need to open up the fender liner to see what you have and replace the base of the antenna.
Hope that make sense to you.
