I need to replace the antenna on my EF as it has been snapped clean off to the base. It is not an electronic one. Can anyone help?

You gotta remove the plastic inner guard, just a bit, and fold it back over the top of the tyre.
There is a 10mm headed bolt, undo that, and pull the plug/grommet out of the side of the kick panel in the wheel house, and pull the antenna down.
With new antenna, push it up. The 10mm headed bolt also holds the earth for the antenna.
Don't forget to plug in the antenna coax cable....go inside and behind the plastic kick panel.

Very easy, it will all become clear once you get in there. A child could do it.

Its alot easier if you jack it and pull the wheel off too.
