I've got a 2011 9-3 saloon and was hoping for some advice on how to get a decent dab signal.
I'm anticipating removing and replacing the existing shark fin with a dab enabled unit. Is this the way to go? Or should I be thinking elsewhere?

If doing this will I need to drop the headlining?

Thanks in anticipation

There's a 15mm square hole. I put a DAB aerial in there, but I used a multi aerial because I needed a GPS aerial as well.

You can get an arm in between the roof and the headlining to get at the single 22mm nut. Pull off the rear passenger door rubber seal, remove the grab handle and the cover on the . You may have to remove the door pillar trim, if your arms are a bit thick.

Everything will be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's not the end...
