Inevitable - snapped aerial

Well inevitably snapped my aerial today.

Is it going to be a case of buying a stock aerial to replace, or can the original fitment be altered to fit a standard 5/6mm threaded one?

My replacement dealership one was only 24 odd quid, not worthwhile fretting about altering it.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Jackonlyjack - any idea what to search?

Lambert - yeah I did find one at around £23 after a little more searching, saw quite a few at £40 mind which was a little off putting at first sight

I have a brand new broken one, genuine Suzuki.

Why would you want a broken one?

It was cosmetically damaged in the post. The nylon sleeve that fits down into the pillar has been bent. The aerial itself is fine and extends and retracts ok.

£15 plus postage

Well an offer like that is hard to refuse, thank you. I'll drop you a message shortly.

I was looking at a raku 2 fitting and then adapting the current fitment to suit it before I saw your message.

Martin, you wouldn't happen to have two? I'm in the exact same predicament as the OP. Only one Jimny going at my local scrappy, and it's a rollover. Only quote I've had online from 1st choice spares was for £60 which is pretty extortionate for a used aerial.

I also need the wee bit of trim that caps the rubber rain rail on the front right corner

Hi

The aerials are "only" £43 from me, brand new genuine Suzuki so the used part at £60 is really bad value!

I will try and identify the roof part and get a price

Hey Martin

Thanks for checking, just ordered one at my local dealer for £44. Would've pick one up from yourself but the zuke garage is only a 20 minute detour on my way to work so really isn't too bad. They however can't supply the plastic end-cap on its own as they can only order the whole rubber rail, for £53. Will need to find a scrap one somewhere.

For those who have a CB, there are boxes you can buy to link your car radio aerial to the CB one to make the Old aerial redundant and improve reception.
