wanted - Roof mount aerial - Dispatch 2002

Hi, anyone recommend where I can find a good aerial replacement for this? The car wash wasn't a good success! An original would be good but a decent replacement with the right mount and connector would do.

Thanks

Being a PSA vehicle I'd check out 307's.....207's, 406's, down the Breakers (eB** even)......... might not be same length but woud have same or very similar fittings..........

Thanks Vaz

I can't ask you do the trip to the tip finding one smile I will check out the web link. As much as I like driving the van, my cd collection is just Pink Floyd and getting depressed listening to the wall for the 20th time!

I presume access is via removing the interior light?

I'd presume access from interior light also .............

As much as I'm Floyd fan aswell........ I remember listing to The Wall in late 79 just about the time I'd got my Class 1 HGV ............
But your right Apart from a good album ........
Needing to be in the mood for such a subject
After constant listening bound to take a toll........
Look on the bright side ....... Unless you've changed the Original Radio/CD at least it's playing CD's ...........As the Original head unit dosen't do MP3 discs

Listening to The Wall for the 20th time in a row would be depressing, Wish you Were Here would be slightly less depressing!

I've got a Bluetooth FM transmitter. Can't beat it. Hardly ever listen to FM radio anymore, everything goes through my phone to it, with the original (tape  big_smile ) head unit


If in doubt, give it a clout!

I think I'm right in saying that you actually need to remove the overhead shelf and roof liner.

I bought replacement parts on ebay to do mine years ago and went off the idea when I realised that was the deal.

Happy to be corrected tho!

Hahaha, I love the Floyd replies, I decided just to change it and get one from Halfords (rear mount etc is says on the box) fitted by removing the overhead interior light, access is tight and a 1/4 inch drive long reach socket needed to disconnect the lead. I taped the new base to the roof as no one to hold it there, 15 min job, now I can listen to radio 1 again!.... Hmmm, think I may stick with Floyd! PS OAT, I am liking that track!
