How to deactivate antenna? (SW20) 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 58
Good morning guys, I was wondering if anyone here could provide me with instructions on how to deactivate the antenna mechanism to leave it down? I don't like to have it all the way up once I have the radio on, but I still want to make sure it still functions in case I ever want it to work again.

Thanks!

Hi RR87 ... disconnecting the power cable from the aerial will stop it from going up and down when you operate the radio, it will remain in the position that it is in when you disconnect it.
But when it's down, you'll obviously not be able to pick up many channels .... if any at all

No problem ... it's only a push-on connector, just a bit awkward to get at, there is not much space down there!

You could disconnect it as said and then use the following aerial

www.mr2-ben.co.uk/products/view/glass-mo...ta-mr2-mk2-1989-1999

Place it on rear glass. prob won't be as good as an aerial all the way up but def better than it all the way down : )

Easy to fit - just remove stereo, plug it in, run it along under center console and fit to rear window
