New aerial needed

My aerial is working, that is it still extends and retracts, but the cord inside which extends the aerial is either loose or broken, because when the aerial extends fully the cord still keeps trying to extend and makes a horrible loud sound.

It stops about 5 seconds later and everything works fine, but it's annoying everytime you switch the radio on and the aerial extends that you have to hear this sound.

The price for a new Alfa aerial is too much, are there any other telescopic aerials which fit the Alfa?

I am in Australia and have an Alfa Spider 2000 model.

Re: New aerial needed

I don't know about aftermarket aerials but our GTV has the same problem and fitting a new factory aerial does not cure it! I suspect that the problem is sensor related rather than a fault of the aerial itself but am inclined to think "they all do that sir"

In theory the only bit that is unique to the GTV/Spider would be the mounting that the aerial fits into so I would be interested to know if you have any success with finding an alternative make to fit - and whether this cures the problem.
