Mk2 Aygo DAB Aerial Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Recently treated my 2014 Mk2 Aygo X-Play to a CarPlay retrofit with the 86140-YV020 head unit. This unit has DAB functionality however my car was not factory specced with this feature. To allow me to access DAB stations I realise I need to install an aerial with DAB input but I was wondering how easy of a job this is and whether I require a new aerial and dashboard loom or just the aerial.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated! Thanks 😄

I know where to get the parts I was just looking to ascertain exactly how much work is involved. Does it require all new wiring from the roof into the back of the head unit? Or assume there is another cable linkage somewhere en route between the two?

In case anyone comes across this thread, I can confirm that the entirety of the aerial from the roof to the back of the head unit needs to be replaced. You will need both a new aerial AND the dashboard aerial loom in order to install. I was able to get a hold of the aerial but not the dashboard wiring loom so I am not proceeding. Hope anyone else attempting the same has a better chance than I did!
