Do you mean you have snapped the aerial clean offwith the threaded part left in the base? if not why dont you get a s2000 aerial like me. If you have snapped it with the thread in you will have to remove the headlining to remove the base and fit a new one.

Thanks for that jackie.The aerial has just broken midway on the shaft,it is still intact by the rubber outer sheath.Do you have any photos of your s2000 fitted and where i might get one from.Mike.

Standard antenna will cost you about £7 from the dealer to replace. If you have sat-nav then the antenna is £70 !!!

Just be aware that some shorter stubby antenna's really affect the radio reception. The S2000 antenna should be ok as its a proper aerial.

I will get one for you, go into honda and get one, they are all the same now civics, jazz s2000 etc. My mate gave me his but looks a lot better than some tacky aftermarket ones and imo even better than the standard one

Edited to add no loss in in signal
