New Aerial

Post by craig2859 on Tue May 21, 2013 6:17 pm

I have a snapped Aerial, and its starting to become annoying with every radio station having a mush of white noise .... Sad

Does anyone have one of these going at all, or know the best place to get one?

They are verry common aerils. You find them on ebay: http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Daihatsu-Hi-Jet-Hijet-Porter-Pillar-Aerial-Antenna-/400177101719?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item5d2c69fb97

I think they are sold in every local automotiveshop.

I would suggest that universal aerials do no quite fit the curve of the pillar perfectly.

So when you install make sure you seal everything up well with some silicon.

Otherwise you'll have a wet drivers side carpet and in the end it will cause more rot.

The mounting point on the pillar has a flat area for the base of the ariel.

The one I took off my pickup was this one:-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Daihatsu-Hi-Jet-Hijet-Porter-Pillar-Aerial-Antenna-/400177101719

And the mounts did not match the shape of the van, water had been running down the inside of the A pillar and into the footwell where it had caused alot of corrosion.
