Aerial Won't Come Off!?

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Having a real problem - trying to replace my aerial which got mangled in an asda car wash, but the bloomin thing won't unscrew!! My husband has been trying to unscrew it using pliers, but nope - it won't budge. Afraid to try too hard in case it rips the roof!

Anyone else had this problem and have any handy tips for how to loosen it?

Maybe we're trying the wrong way....?? See photo attached. :(

Thanks

Claire

I take it is just the whip bit that you are trying to screw off, and not the base part, the aerial base is attached by a bolt up from its underside from the interior of the vehicle. The whip part can be seized on if not unscewed regularly but try vice grips and gently try and work it back and forward till it comes off

Yep it's just the top bit - thanks, good to know it does definitely unscrew! I've never taken it off before, so it's been stuck tight on there for 6 years. Will give it another go...

Give it a spray of penetrating Oil and leave for a while first before trying again.
