Aerial dropped off

Post by KBUK » Tue Oct 01, 2019 10:16 am

Car had an overheating issue which meant I was constantly killing the engine to keep it cool. As I pulled up to the lights, the car was bubbling away so I pulled the key and as the key moved to the off position, the aerial came down and snapped off.... :shock:

Tail between legs, I pulled over and ripped the aerial off the car - I'm now looking for a replacement and the best I've found is this

The motor is absolutely fine however, I can here it running away for fun. Does anyone know if I can get the aerial only and replace that instead of the whole 9 yards or is it better just to do the whole lot?

That is the 'standard fit everything' aerial but do not expect it to be easy job to get it to fit the Probe nicely without problems.
Not the least , is the lack of connections to make it work exactly as the original.

Better yet, know where I can get a proper ford one with OEM connections?

My last one was from the USA, (about £60) but noticed that the seller has stopped shipping from the usa ?
