So - anyone ever replaced an aerial on a 9000CS?

I have needed a new mast for mine and I have been given a complete aerial - how tricky is it fit? Anyone know of any instructions?

Many thanks as always!

Quite easy.

Undo the nut on the outside on the ariel surround.
Remove carpet on appropriate side.
Undo electrical clip for the power control and the ariel signal
Undo the 2 (or possibly 3) bolts holding the ariel and bracket to the body
Swap bracket over if necessary

Removal is the reverse of refitting.

If the mast alone requires changing it ought to be possible without removing the whole unit.

I changed both the mast on my CD Carlsson and Aero by removing the top nut that goes around the mast, turned on the radio to get the mast to extend, pulled the mast up and out (the plastic toothed 'tail' follows). Place the new mast tail in the hole vacated by the old and push in. Turn off the radio to draw in the mast. Replace nut and tighten. 5 minute job each time.

Tidied up the look by having a new, clean mast. Also helps where the old mast had poor electrical contact between sections leading to poor reception.

I'm sure you tube will have a video to show how to do it.

Hope this helps.

Bought a replacement mast for my 9000cs (1996)
Watched the video, read the instructions, removed top nut turned on radio but old mast refuses to come out, although it does go up!
What am i doing wrong?
Thanks jim
