    Default Peugeot 306 broken roof aerial.

    Due to car wash damage my roof aerial was snapped off. The bolt remains lodged in the plastic roof housing.

    What is the best way to get the bolt out? and fix the problem?

    Cheers

    Happened to me... this was before I knew it could be unscrewed. Doh!

    The snapped bolt can be easily drilled out & a new antenna placed in. You're in Brisbane, right? If you call Stuart @ peugeotech in northgate he'll be able to fix it, and his pricing is good. He's brilliant with Pugs. Feel free to email me for contact details. I sent you an email with my work address.

    if it has snapped off and left the threaded part in there it shouldn't be that tight in fact it should be pretty loose

    depending on haw far in it is you should be able to spin it out

    a tip when getting a new aerial get one from a 405 as they are longer and they pluck the voices out of the sky a lot better than the little thing the 306 comes with

    i took off the long ariel on my 205 gti and put on a stubby 306 type ariel.it hasnt made any difference to the radio reception.the length of the ariel should not really be of much consequence unless your trying to pick up signals from mars.the long one kept hitting the roof when i drove up my drivway and would hit the overhanging trees ,also it had been bent in a carpark.the stubby rubber ones are much more durable.
    you access the bottom of the ariel in my car via the light panel on the intereor roof,dont know bout yours though.
    you can have my old ariel if you want to pay for postage,i bent it back into shape and its hard to tell it was damaged at all-,bazz

    I lived without my arial for at least 18 months. The only time I didn't get perfectly clear reception was when I went through tunnels. And, yeah, to detach the entire arial assembly in the 306 you go through the light fittings in the cabin, but is probably easier to get the bolt out from the outside.

    out here in the bush you need all the radio reception help you can get and the 306 has never been very good in that department

    my mother took her short one off her 206 and put a 405 one on and has never looked back and when i tried hers on my car it was a lot better it was a damn shame to hand it back over and stick my short 306 one back on the car

    i need only go out of town around 5-10km's and i lose the station but with the 405 aerial on the car i held the station for a lot longer

    before my mother swapped hers over in the 206 it was hopeless but since she has changed hers she can actually get the local station here when she is just this side of orange so she can still pick it up nearly 90km's away

    much better that the 5-10 i can get
