As I mentioned in my intro post, I've just bought a 1999 Spider 2.0 TS Lusso, its currently fitted with a Blaupunkt radio/cassette, which doesn't get any reception.
Obviously this isn't the factory fitted one and has been replaced at some point. Is there a magic button somewhere that I've not located that is meant to put the aerial on the back up automatically?
How did it work in models with the factory fitted one? Was it just a case of switching the radio on?
Is there an easy way to diagnose if this is a motor problem, or if the fitted unit just doesn't trigger it?
If I decide to switch the unit out for a radio/CD player, which current units are compatible with this car/aerial?
Finally has anyone fitted a manual aerial to their Spider/GTV?
Apologies for the length of this post, and the barrage of questions, but as you can probably tell I'm new to all this.
