Interesting you say about your ariel, I bought a short one and had no signal so returned to the fishing rod. Has anyone come up with a booster ariel??? like we used to have for TV signal ( Still have ) then I could use a short again. Do all lovers of the small ones compensate on signal loss for style?? I'd rather have the radio working good.ram:Where's the rest of your ariel ? It's a bit stumpy isn't it ? Ours looks good but doesn't pick up any radio signals so we are on the look out for another one rather than putting the original fishing rod of an aerial back on....
Excellent How to MMM xx

Anyone any hints? I can't seem to be able to do it! :SI am bumping this because I just tried to replace the cap with a chrome one. It took me something like an hour to remove the bolts - very frustrating. I can't for the life of me remove the key mechanism. I press the three pins one by one but whenever I press the third one another one pops back in place. Why on earth does it have to be so over-engineered? I still haven't managed to remove to key mechanism
Total failure even with two of us. Is there something else going on? Does the key have to be turned to a certain position (Does it matter?). Will the plastic cup go "forward" and the remaining mechanism go "backwards" or is it one piece?I'll see what I can do
Did yours have three or six clips? As I just found out the six clips is it the MK2 version. I don't want to go to bed before I sort this out! Not to mention that the car is parked on the street with a small towel where the fuel cap usually is :yikes:I found that using a large flat screwdriver, using the lugs where the bolts go through, twisting slightly and literally forcing it out did the trick.
I polished two and painted two and all were difficult to some extent but definitely do able.
I bought a replacement cap (chrome triple-plated) that I want to swap. I don't want to return it and at £50 a pop I don't want to just store it either. It looks good and I would like to use it. If everything else fails, I will cut the solid clips with a knife or something similar.1998 Mgf.
Your only other option is carefully rub down and paint it with the insert in place.
