What a great way of saving £135 buying a new aerial. Hardest job was getting the old aerial cap off, in the end I cut a small hole in some cardboard and put it over the aerial to protect the paintwork, I then used a pair of angled circlip pliers for the two holes in the cap and lots of WD40, eventually it unscrews. My threads were a little damaged so I ground a little off of the metal spacer that fits underneath so as to hit good thread.
You do not need to strip the aerial right down just loosen the screws and you can move parts out of the way, there is then just one little brass nut that holds the casing on so you can check inside for broken parts of the old cable.
