Satellite Radio Antenna

7463 16
Hi guys,
I have a 2013 2LT. When I bought it (used) the satellite radio wasn't working. The dealership quoted me $500 for fix it. I was told the antenna was busted and needed to be replaced. The roof of the car had been hit by falling tree limb. Even though I really love my watercolors channel on Sirius, I didn't think I loved it enough to spend $500 to fix it.
I didn't look more into it as I was told it was somehow connected to antenna for Onstar and I didn't want to mess that up.
Out of the blue, my wife bought this for me as early birthday present, since I always state hoe jealous I am of the satellite radio in her traverse.
I don't want to go through the trouble of removing the head unit if this antenna isn't going to work. I've searched the Internet trying to find a good picture of the back of the head unit to make sure, but I haven't seen anything convincing.
Will this work? Adapter Adapter Electronic device Technology Electronics accessory

Thanks for theverything replies. I'm looking at adding the antenna for the integrated radio. I'm guessing this one won't work then. If that's the case, where can I purchase the correct antenna (apart from the dealer), and about how much do they normally run?

Hi guys. Thanks for the replies.
I was given a quote of $500 and a just lost interest and never researched it. Onstar works great, so I don't why the satellite radio doesn't work. The screen is just blank when turned to satellite radio and my fm radio reception really sucks, so I just assume it the antenna. Everything else on the radio (fm, am, Bluetooth, usb, cd, backup camera) works just fine. Only the satellite radio doesn't work. I'll try this antenna this weekend like you suggested. I just didn't want to go through all that work if it's not the right stuff, especially in this below freezing weather.

Here's a picture of the back of a stock head unit I got off one for sale on eBay. I'm hoping this antenna will fit into one of those connectors to the top left. I assume one is for Onstar and the other is for satellite radio Electronics Technology Electronic device

I was looking at this page: ANTENNA & RADIO for 2013 Chevrolet Cruze

I think you're looking for item #2 in the top pic. I'm guessing the "with digital audio" is the XM.
I think you're right. I think that's what I need, and it's a lot cheaper than the $500 I was quoted. My guess is that the guy I bought it from bought just replace the antenna with the cheaper one (without digital audio) or didn't replace it at all.
