    Default Does my car have an arial!?

    Pic of my car here...
    http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...3&id=512305573

    does anybody know if it has an arial!? its ex police so didnt know if they had taken it off, i cant find any holes anywhere. the elites have the arial on the roof at the back. I have checked the wiring at the back of stereo and there is a arial lead but no signal so just wonder if it is connected to anything!

    To save me pulling off th trim around the whole car to follow the lead to see where it goes can anybody recommend where the arial (if it has one) might be hidden if internal so i can start there?

    Also anybody used internal arials before as im tempted to get one of these if i dont have one...

    thanks

    well i wa thinking of putting an internal one on the windscreen pillar but was just unsure about how good the reception would be, either that or drill some holes in roof and install a shark fin one but then that means messing about with the roof interior trim which is a ball ache!

    can you see the arial in the rear window like a very faint line or is it hidden?

    ive pulled off the trim at the boot roof and ive found the aerial wire unconnected, there is a male and female connector that could go into each other but then when i follow both wires they go back down to the offside light cluster in the boot so all they do when i connect them up is loop in the roof n thats it! this sound normal?
