Yep, assuming you can hear the motor still trying, then you need a new aerial mast. The teeth gradually wear and then it stops working properly...

Still available in ebay via people like Parts Monster, and also PartsforVolvos have them.

Good luck!

I think the gears are part of the motor section and not the mast but gears just might be available. Good luck. My guess is that you will replace the whole thing.

The electric aerial on our S70 died, and I found that a generic replacement from a local motorists shop fitted exactly and wasn't very expensive.
