Thanks Geoff. I thought as much. I guess I need LR008654 or something similar. Would you have any particular recommendations? I have rigged up a temporary aerial and it seems to work but would like to get something nearer the real thing to ensure best range and performance.
Cheers.

Thanks Geoff. Have got one ordered. It seems to work quite well with just a short piece of wire as a temporary aerial . Remote preheater up and running, reversing camera wired up and enabled (great picture) and a cracked instrument cluster perspex replaced today. Feeling quite chuffed with myself. Very Happy

Pity I didn't do so well excavating a blocked drain with a mini digger this morning. Managed to scoop up a live underground electrical cable and burst my water supply pipe - luckily not at the same time Sad

Hugh

Did you resolve this as ive ended up in the same boat with the LR030286 lead with the pink female co ax connector on the free end instead of the LR008654 arial and lead assembly complete

have to say tho that it seems to work fine as i guess the lead is acting as an arial on its own ( a bit like having a coat hanger in your old broken off cortina arial back in the day Laughing )

Does anyone know were the factory fitted aerial would be located if it had been fitted originally and is the LR008654 unit this same original fitment item or being a retro bit is it different ?

trying to weigh up whether its worth getting the LR 30286 unit or just not bother

I sent the 030286 lead back and bought the aerial. I was concerned that range would be limited unless I had the proper aerial. Aerials need to be the correct length depending on the frequency for optimum performance and while my interim "coat hanger" wire worked, I knew it would not be the best solution.

I had a good look for a previously fitted aerial but couldn't find one. The photo below shows where I fitted mine but I suppose I could have hidden it behind the C pillar trim.
