Q: Wiring For Dab-Antenna. Removal Of Panel.

Recommended Posts

Generally they just "snap" off (without any actual snapping hopefully), but is there a curtain airbag behind that one? If so you might want to steer clear...

I have a wire running up there for a Dashcam, I just pushed the cable under the lip at the edge of the panel rather than taking it off. Tucked the wire in, then the next panel I got to was an easy one (I went down the the door sills, which pop off very happily).

Thank you! :) There's an airbag there yes. Your method is clever. :)

It's possible there's no danger. But I was terrified of it exploding in my face. Good luck with your cable hiding, it's quite satisfying getting it all tucked away from sight :)

Yes, and I bet they are kinda expensive too. :) Yes, having a cable on the dash I would rather not have. :)

You can also route through the b-pillar where your seatbelts are.

It's a stereo with DAB. The antenna is to be mounted on the front window.

There's probably a "special" fixing which should not be re-used. Relates to the airbag being installed.

Might be worth checking with a T dealer's parts department about the throw away clip.

Ah ok, not very common in my country, so thought you were routing it to the roof... Sorry :)
