Aerial help needed (before I go mad)

If anyone can help with this I would be very grateful.....

A while ago my GTV aerial stopped going back up....on investigation I discovered the white toothed belt inside had become dislodged somehow.....and then when I tried to refit it it bought a replacement belt from a breakers.....and now what happens is that I can get the belt in place so it raises the aerial fine when the stereo is clicked into place.....and then when I turn off the stereo it comes back down but it seems to overwind such that the belt detaches itself from the aerial and I am back to square one as it will not then raise the aerial as it has again become dislodged....I have tried everything I can think of but it does it every time....I cant tell you how exasperating this is as getting the stoopid thing installed is a right pain in the @rse of itself......any suggestions gratefully received. I dont want to go the Maplins replacement route if possible.

I now have an unused Maplin aerial for sale if anyone needs one as Autolusso had an Alfa one which they fitted for me.

Maplin one cost me 25 I think.

Open to reasonable offers. Will be about a fiver to post I should think.
