    Angry DAB Radio Amp

    My 2008 Vec Design was parked in the street the other day when a van drove by and an unsecured sheet of wood slid off it onto my roof, putting some small dents on the roof and damaging the aerial.

    Of course Mr Van Man got out, put the sheet back on and drove off. No one noted the reg number or any other details. The Radio now doesn't work, DAB or FM.

    The black plastic box that the aerial screws into is an ampliflier and could be damaged. I have ordered a new aerial at around £20 but am sure the amp is damaged which is £78. The plastic cover for the amp is distorted and not fitting flush with the roof.

    Does anyone know how the black plastic box is fixed to the roof ? It also houses the rear window washer. Has it got to be removed from inside the car; ie from under the headlining. Does it just unscrew or is there some special clips. Can the plastic cover be removed from the outside? Any help will be much appreciated.

    I'm sure you will have to pull headlining down and unscrew a single nut securing the aerial to the roof and i'm sure you will find these are sealed units ( i maybe wrong)
    I would check connections first when you pull headlining down you maybe lucky and with the force of the impact it might of dislodged the connection
