Yes, I see no reason why not.

Swapping out one component with another exact replacement will be completely fine.

Oh ok that’s cool because for some reason my antenna has lost its sensitivity. Even after a hard reset using the detector tools.
Let’s see I will swap the antenna and see how it goes thanks

It sounds like it needs some soldering work. You could mail in the original one for repair. Escort charges $99 for hardware fixes + 3 month warranty and $139 if you want to get a hardware fix, full tune up, plus a one year warranty. Consider that when you're looking for purchasing a replacement antenna. Also, be aware that the STi-R antenna is not the same as the STi-R Plus (STi-R+), so be sure to get the same antenna when you're purchasing a replacement, if you decide to go that route.

Hey thanks for that I purchased the second hand Stir plus working entire kit.
Best part I only had to replace the antenna with my weak signal antenna. It all shook hands paired up well and I do not need to strip the entire front of the car to change the other parts. Thanks anyway for the info I could maybe one day send my antenna to Escort for the service.

Hey thanks you said it, I only replaced the antenna and they all work fine together. Cheers
