Hi the julian - I have just replaced my electric insert on my arial like your talking about. I removed the ring around the top of the arial itself by giving it gentle taps with a screwdriver. this removes the threaded top section and gives you access to your ariel socket. Turn the radio on or push the arial up button to the max so that the cord that pushes the arial up comes out of its housing - on the end of this there is a connector that the new arial screws into. On mine it had be snapped off too so a little electrical crimp and some araldite joined the two halfs. Extend the arial shaft fitting the gromet as supplied with the arial and place the base knuckle into its housing. Replace the screw top surround and retract the arial from inside the car. If the tail part of the arial lead has gone inside the machanisum then its just a case of running the switch one way then the other until the end appears.
Job took me about 20 mins to complete - finding the right electrical crimp and the tubes of araldite in the shed 3 days.
Having the radio now working again - priceless!!!
Good luck

Hi Phil,
Typically the owner had ripped the stub of the old aerial out and cut
the plastic when the aerial was full extended so now they are going to
have to find a complete replacement!
Silly sods.

My previous owner did the same: I have no bit of plastic to attach to
the base of the aerial shaft.
Is it possible to get a new bit of (toothed?) plastic to feed down into
the motor?

Hi Christopher,
I don't know, I don't recall seeing one on the EPC.
We ended up just putting in the new aerial and had to put a cable tie on
the end so that it can be manually raised and lowered.
