How to get at and replace the aerial wind-up motor?

Here you can post things about ICE (In Car Entertainment). Like how to install GPS navigation, a DVD-player and other yuppie-stuff. This category might be moved to "those other things" in the end...

How to get at and replace the aerial wind-up motor?

Post by MisterH » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:08 pm

'Evening All

I want to replace the motor that winds the aerial up and down for the Radio, but I am unsure about how to go about removing all the plastic fairings that hide it and then how to replace the motor.

I have had a look on the main site, however I cannot find a fix for it, I have had a look in the boot and found a screw hole (without a screw in it, as is becoming the tradition for my car) but cannot understand in my head how it is meant to come away.

Any suggestions or tips?

Many thanks

Ok, I think I may be able to work with my imagination and his written guide, but it will certainly be a challenge with no pictures :?

with reference to 'remove rear lights' then I didn't, remove the 'light bar' is all that's needed, then I managed to wiggle the aerial out , it looks as if it won't but it will :-) some twisting & turning will be required, unplug as many cable from that area as you can safely remove.
