Default No rubber "tail" on car antennas?

I believe my Orbiter car kit antenna is not working. There's a part near the docking station that seems to have been twisted too many times.

Looking at the replacement ones on ebay, it appears that they do not have the rubber "tail" attached to the magnet part to keep the wire from flapping in the wind and creating a sound in the car that sounds like rain when driving fast.

The metal part that goes in the docking station even looks too long to fit.

They come separately from the antenna now.
