yes

jakc passengert side up and remove front wheel

take out about 5-10 scrivets and remove the wheel arch plastic guard

and look to the right of the wheel arch and u will see the antenna in there
should be easy to work out from there

Should be .... mine is.
bloody thing rattles in the wind when it is up too.
Now that I have a Pioneer headunit it ... it stays up all of the time when the car is on too.

Might take the time to look at it when i have the wheel off next and see if i can secure it a little better.

Any idea where to get a half height switch from????
I hardly listen to radio anyway.

I had been told with the Pioneer H/U's that the antenna stays up regardless ... I didn't think you could change it.

You can get the switch from Ford.

It just so happens to be your lucky day though. I brought one. I was going to put it in my car. But can't be bothered. Just gonna stay with the fixed height aerial.

Heres an article about it: http://www.aufalcon.com/Tech/techant.htm

Just reading the tech doco .... would my BEM be the same ... I have the XLS ute though ... no XR ... but has all the power option ... just a lower spec cluster (hence me thinking I have a lower spec BEM as well).

Would it still work with a low-spec BEM?

I dont think so. You will need to wire up some sort of relay with the switch to the aerial. (Thats if you have a low-series BEM)
