Hi everyone. I'm new to all this forum stuff and am hoping someone can help. I have a 207sw and recently started getting 95% radio static and 5%music. A technician at Peugeot said it could be the amplifier box connected to the base of the aerial, but having had the roof skin down at the back I can't see such a box. I've had the head unit out and checked connections too. All ok. Could it be as simple as buying a new aerial stalk??

The amp is in the bulb base of the aerial.

I had a similar problem with my old 307SW. I bought a complete second hand aerial and fitted that, and it cured the problem. Fiddly to do because you have to pull down the head lining.
Afterwards I opened up the old base and found the problem. The base of the whip is only connected to the amp through a sprung contact, which was corroded. If I had just cleaned it, I could have saved a bit of money.
