    Default Xantia Aerial Removal

    Anybody know how to remove the aerial off the Xantia?

    I was quite happy to simply lay it down so that I could put a tarp over it.

    Got to the stage where I as about to get the 1\2 " drill to get that plug off!

    The long bit screws off the base where black meets grey and they fold down onto the roof too.

    Thanks John.

    I've ripped the skin off my hand trying to unscrew it!

    Time for multi grips I guess!

    Doesn't the base unscrew from underneath?

    From underneath the headlining in the interior, presumably it does......

    In a 205 that screw is easy to get to - all you do is unclip the interior light. Is it perhaps the same in a Xantia?

    I'll stop guessing and find the manual!

    Haynes confirms stalk unscrews. Also says roof lining removal "best entrusted to a Citroen specialist" is needed to get at the securing screw for the base. Just a small removable plug would avoid such misery, but another production cost of course.

    Thanks John, I expected it to unscrew as it must be removable with auto car washing facilities and I want it removable for covering purposes - certainly not touching inside lining!

    Multi-grips are looking good notwithstanding I'll try a bit of WD40 and give it time to work.

    Xantia Aerial Removal-image.jpg I unscrew ours regularly, but remember it did take a bit of effort the first time. This is the '96, which unscrews easily; the '99 feels more ratchety when it it is unscrewed.

    Thank you all and thank you Bruce for confirming the obvious,

    Multi grips at the base (with protection) did the trick.

    Whilst there is a very good seal between the two, there was some evidence of some very minor corrosion. Cleaned and lubricated threads with WD40 - it will be easy from now on.

    Regards,

    John
