    The radio aerial on the car was knackered when we bought it. It's not the removable antenna that's the problem (that would be too easy!) but the mounting on the qtr panel that's stripped out. Getting to the fixings on the inside is a 'mare because its double skinned, and it 'feels' like theres more than just the antenna mount stuffed in there. Has anyone ever removed this? I'm asking because I recall someone had the whole qtr panel off in another thread so may have a better idea what's going on behind.

    Can't you access it from inside the boot. If you move the carpet out of the way there should be large holes in the inner wing to access the back of the aerial mount. With all the boot mechanism in the way, you might be best to start the roof lowering procedure so the boot flips backwards out of the way. Stop before the roof moves. You should then get access to the clips that hold the carpet in the boot.

    Done all that. They would be small holes that don't line up with the mount! Lol. That's why I'm asking.

    Okay, can't think of any other way to get to the mounting screws. Looking at the service manual section J4-2 isn't much help either.
    All it shows is an exploded view of the aerial.

    Hi Dunf,
    How did you get on removing/fitting your aerial, access etc???? as I'm thinking of fitting a replacement dab/fm aerial on the wing as the sticky window dab one that came on my Copen does not seem very good, poor digital signal with constant drop outs.

    3yrs on and I've still not changed it! Lol. I don't drive the car, it's the wife's, so I think she's gave up moaning about not having a radio now..... I hope. ;)
