Electric Aerial that fits recomendation please

Postby p in phcas » Wed Jul 29, 2015 1:41 pm

I know the space in the wing is limited and I remember that electric aerials fitted needed to be small or slim or short. Does anybody have a model or manufacturer for an aerial that will replace my ageing manual one?

I've found fleabay aerials that say they do, but I don't trust the descriptions.

Hirschmann used to do them - good quality if you can track one down.

Cheers GTXTRA - do you think http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Golf-Polo-Jetta-Scirocco-Hirschmann-Electric-Aerial-Power-Antenna-Chrome-Top-/400835969045 will fit?

Under wing dimensions are 325 x 90 x70 mm

looks like the one i fitted to my own car a while back.
the other problem your going to have is the top bit that pokes through the wing being too big and overlapping the edges of the wing.
the one i bought used plastic and rubber that i managed to trim to get to fit correctly.


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!

I bought one of these, it's excellent quality. Would recommend. Only thing is, make sure you tell the eBay seller it's for a Mk2 rocco and they will supply the correct narrow wing top mounting. You probably have it sorted by now anyway.

Yep, it is all sorted. When I received the unit it was apparent that the top mounting was wrong. I was in contact with the seller and they were very responsive and were interested in sorting the issue out. I sent them some pictures of the wing and they deduced that a narrow top was needed and it arrived the very next day. I fed back that this worked for the Mk2 and they promised to update their description to ensure that the right bits would be available for future 'rocco purchasers.

Glad my feedback helped a bit!
