    Default Fitting a 405/306 aerial to 504

    Has anyone done the above? I thought I might change to a newer type of aerial (roof mounted of course) as I put my 504 back together.

    Any advice or tips welcome.

    I fitted one to a 404 in the turret above the mirror.

    It's a matter of following your nose.

    Un threading the lead on the 405 is a b*****d. You may need to cut the plug off.

    The advantage is being able to unscrew the aerial in car washes.

    On the 404 there are bracing bars in the roof, so you need to drill back a bit.
    The less one interacts with rude, ignorant, critical and argumentative members. The more peaceful life becomes.

    I have fitted roof mounted aerials on 504/s in the past ,mounted in the centre just back from the windscreen and adjusted to slope backwards in line with the slip stream so there is no wind noise from it .I was able to reach in under the headlining from the side to feel the correct place for the hole [it helps to have long arms]

    My only advice is to keep some kind of sealant on standby as the aerial seals on any Pug of that vintage are likely stuffed! A little while after I got my 306 she sprung a leak through the aerial after several days of terrential rain. Dripped into the central courtesy light, but somehow avoided that fabled French poppencorken mit spitzensparken. From memory I used a silicone RTV to plug it up.

    Also, hello (ex-)neighbour I grew up in Wandin.

    Thanks guys, not sure if it was clear that my 504 already has a roof aerial, just wanted to change to something newer.
