    Hi all, looking for some advice if possible.

    Decided to swap my aftermarket head unit back to the original BMW Business CD unit.

    Unfortunately I managed to pull the radio antenna connector off the antenna wire whilst doing the change over. You can see the part I accidentally removed in the pic.

    I cant just push the wires back into the connector as it doesn’t pick up reception when I do. I can put the antenna wire directly into the hole on the back of the head unit but it doesn’t stay there- just pops out as I push the headunit back in to position.

    Can this part be repaired easily?! Is there an easy fix? I thought it would be a 5 min job and now I’ve completely lost radio which is annoying!

    Any advice appreciated. Adam

    Hi

    You will need the connector with the wire connected and solder it to the original wire. If you want to pop down to me, I can do it for you.
