Tightening up the pivot of the aerial mount is easy, discovered today.

Unscrew aerial rod from mount, pull off plastic cover, tighten pivot screw.

Did not go to plan, removed the interior lamp and the plastic crumbled in my hands, gluing it together now and reinforcing with epoxy adhesive. In removing a couple of screws retaining the trim panel, two screw bosses disintegrated, epoxy again. Given up doing the aerial for today!
I have a spare plastic, it is cracked but still strong

Hi Ben, it all repaired well with epoxy resin, cheap stuff from Poundland.

Once fitted, can't see any damage, and I think it's now stronger than original.

Thanks though Ben, much appreciated.
