The screw connecting my aerial to the base unit on my 2014

This answer was rated:

The screw connecting my aerial to the base unit on my 2014 fiat 500 has snapped off. Half is in aerial and half in base on roof. How do I remove the stuck screw from base unit? Do I need to replace the lot? It was a clean break. Thank you
JA: Are you fixing your 500e yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: At first I thought it had just come loose as it fell when I opened my boot. My son in law may attempt if it’s a simple fix.
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No that is it thank you

This is where it has snapped. The rest is in the base unit on roof.

Thank you so much for your patience today, I can see that you are having some difficulty with the roof aerial. I can see that you want to remove it sp hopefully the following can assist you further;

  • you will need to remove the headlining just enough to expose the base of the antenna 
  • there will be the base that you can remove to replace with a new one 
  • you can gain access if you raise the boot and remove the parcel shelf 

I am here to support you if you need anything else please let me know 

It has been a pleasure to help you today, is there anything further I can assist with? Thanks for choosing Just Answer I hope you have a great day.
