It is on the back window the bottom two bars on the heated window are your aerial.
Brilliant.

And for the record your better off with it in the window.
The facelift interior cars have it on the roof untill you forget its there when going through a car wash like i did.

Mate it is defo there. i cant remember if there top or bottom (pretty sure bottom though).
they look no different to the demister bars so hard to spot.
if your car is pre 02 reg then its in the window if your car is 02+ with the facelift interior then it is on the roof.

and for the record alfa had so many complaints about poor reception on the 156 with window mounted aerial that they decided to put an equaly poor antenna on the roof. DOH
So not only do newer model 156 owners have to contend with bad reception but we also have to remember to remove the c r a py thing before the brushes start spinning in the car wash and not remember that we have a useless roof mounted aerial just as it flys accross the bonnet like what happened to me.
And for the record my reception is no worse for not having an aerial.
So thank you alfa for defacing a perfectly nice looking car with that coat hanger stuck on the roof.
Rant over.
I feel better for that.

It is definitely the bottom two bars on the rear screen.... I spent a year thinking the elements were damaged until it was pointed out to me :lol:

Top bars ... on '98 model at least. Can't see anything different on later ones. The powered aerial amplifier is behind the o/s panel behind the rear door. Good place to start if reception is really poor. AM is always poor ....

the roof aeerial may have been for the built-in phone as part of the original radio ...
