Estate Aerials
« on: January 11, 2013, 06:44:06 PM »
Any one know if the aerial lead in an estate has a bit of play in it from the aerial its self leading back into the body work ?
tried to fit a new rubber gasket to my roof mounted aerial but the lead was to tight so couldnt undo the nut  ::)

There should be a fair bit.
Try seeing if you can get some slack behind the N/S light cluster first.

There is a whole corner to cut there. I seem to remember, on my blue one, it was caught on something so you should be able to get a bit more by untangling. It was buried right on the outside of the bend near to the rear lights.

Old age means wondering: Do I really have to struggle to become an expert in something I might never need to do again.

Your right Chris - was Peter last time I checked !.

No worries though - I am pretty good at mixing up names myself. I think I have called Carlton_Mad "Day" often enough for him to realise its him I am talking to  ::). I worked with two people who's names I regularly transposed. Really confused them when, on occaisions, I got it correct  :o.

Hi, Iv'e just joined the the club and read that you had a problem concerning the aerial on your Carlton estate. The "Blaupunct SQR88 radio in my 2.0cdi Estate only works when pointing in a certain direction which points to an aerial problem, but I found that there wasn't enough spare cable to find out what the trouble was. The CD player is U/S it keeps rejecting the disc. Any suggestions would be appreciated . BAGPUSS.

That's the more rare stereo option.
That's the one with the separate CD player under the tape deck, yes?
