I strange thing happend the other day when i put my rear screen de-mist on, the radio stopped working in that there was no reception. I know the arial is built in to the rear screen de-mist but why should it stop the signals?

Cheers

Ah, I know about this having been there myself a couple of years ago. It took me ages to find the problem which is....

you've probably got a broken element in the demister. When you next need to use the demister have a careful look along each strip from inside. If there is a break, you'll notice an area which has cleared better than the rest, it'll be about the size of a penny after a minute or two and be roughly circular.

You now need to repair this with a tiny brushful of pcb repair paint or with a specialist demister repair kit. I'll try to find some suitable suppliers......

Hi Ian

Simon is correct, I found a small break and fixed it with some metallised paint bought from my local car spares shop, about £6.00.
