Hmmm Remote Key range very short

Ok i've recently got a 147 and it came with 2 keys. My problem is that the range is very poor with both of them even though they have new batterys and red led works. The range is that short it will not work outside the car but works inside! it of a pain if your outside and want to unlock the car.
I've looked at the wiring diagram and the body computer has an antenna remote connection P93 but though I know where the body computer is not sure which is the antenna.

Anybody got any ideas about my problem or the Antenna or if its the remotes?

The antenna is a single white wire which is usually clipped in at the back of the rev counter, sometimes it unclips and falls down.

If there is nothing wrong with the antenna... I would get the circuitry checked out in both keys, from being dropped, etc, the circuitry often ends up having cracked solder joints, bad connections on the circuitry can cause poor range.
