FAO Vroom (or others) - 147 radio reception


I have Bose only and am getting awful FM radio reception.

I've done a search and found:

Radio reception


How good is your radio reception?

I notice that VROOM had a fix from a dealer where the antenna was replaced and the radio retuned to that new antenna.

VROOM (or others?):

Was the new antenna different type from the standard?
Can you tell me any more about what the retuning process involved (you mention a computer, is this part of diagnostic?)

My 147 is having some work done at the mo and the dealer won't believe there is poor reception, despite my insistence!

Hi Jon,
I had to insist that there was a problem with the antenna before they looked at it. Basically, they traced the cable to see if it was OK and just replaced the antenna with a new one of exactly the same type. When you change a radio or antenna, the head unit must be re-tuned into it. Old radios used to have a screw that you turned, but these days its all done by computer. The dealer will have to do this although I dont know how they do it. The radio reception is now perfect. You just need to pester them. A re-tune might be all thats needed!
Hope this helps.
