    Default changing aerial base

    Right so when I tried to swap my aerial for a new stubby one I found that my old one was seized on, and in my attempts to unscrew it I seemed to have damaged the base so the aerial just spins and doesn't unscrew. Ffs

    Looks like a new base will be needed. Anybody changed one before? How easy is the headlining to remove without damaging it?

    Yeah only a nut and wiring plug hold it on, headlining can be teased down enough without causing damage

    Did you do it from the boot or in the back seat?

    You can get a seal on fleabay. The seal isn’t available separately from vx it just comes with the base
