dont know how to remove it but get one from a scrap yard
yeah i was going to say scrapyard - best bet - ask the kind freindly man at scrapyard how to get them off,
or try adtrader or autotrader for people who are breaking cars
gud luck

try your local allparts, they can oftern be very helpfull

or a local accident repair centre will be able to help you xx
You get access to bolt from underneath - under roof trimming or remove roof light if nearby. Wait till you have the bits or it will leak.

So do i have to remove it by going from inside the car? there isn'et a light near by where the aerial is. i will try a scrap yard!!
Yes you will need to pull down the roof trim - use a big screwdriver or strong fingers to get under an edge and pop out the plastic clips, then unbolt the aerial with an open ended spanner, remove and refit with new /replacement parts, pop the roof trim back and Bob's your uncle.

Yep simple operation but if in doubt a homer mechanic will do it for you for a few quid cash. At the breakers yard, ask to watch the guy take it down and you'll see how to do it! - if they let you in - health and safety etc

Nope - did you get them before? If you get FM it's not the aerial - perhaps the radio faulty?

Sorry, no idea what could be wrong - sounds like a faulty radio.
