    Default megane radio reception

    Hi guys,

    Just a question. the radio reception on my car seems to come in and out. It is a bit like a wave the sound comes in and goes quiet and normal to low again like a wave motion.
    Is it a problem with the ariel, the conections or is it the head unit ?

    I plan to swap ariels with the wifes megane tomorrow to try and id the problem...

    Any ideas ?

    Unless your car is spinning on a turntable !! - I would guess the aerial or its connections to be the first suspect.

    thanks for confirming my thoughts. Change the ariel with the wifes megane first .
    If fails pull the head unit out and check connections. How hard is the head unit to get out ?

    Not sure how hard it is to get out. Haven't tried yet. I think it has teh four holes to stick something liek a coat hanger in to release the clips though.

    Should come out by putting meat skewers into the four holes to release clips then prise out .
    My friends Megane sedan has had intermittent poor reception /static etc . Dealer just shrugs .
