I noticed the aerial plastic broken recently, but the aerial underneath seems to be ok. It is cracked all the way down with the end missing.

It would seem it's not a screw another one in type.

Anyone know what the score is, do I need to replace the whole thing through a dealer?

Thanks

In the US, we have rigid aerials, and there is a Nut at the base and you unscrew the aerial there. I have read that some overseas PTs have motorised aerials and I am of no help with those.

Thanks for the reply. This is roof mounted so slightly different to the US ones :blink:

It does unscrew from the base.
Any late model roof mount aerial will fit.
The plastic cover of mine came off in a carwash.
It then resembled a copper spring.
I replaced mine with a Nissan one, just the stalk part that unscrews from the base
