Hi everybody, a quick question:

 

Is there any special tool to use when fastening the original wing-mounted aerial? Or do you just fasten it by hand?

 

Thank you!

Looks like it has already been drifted round with a screwdriver.Cut a groove to fit round the mast in some 2mm? steel and bend the end prongs over at 90degrees to locate in the slots?Steve..

Yeah, that was me trying to fasten the nut with a screwdriver end over the years... That's why I was wondering if there's a special tool to fasten it... 😅

That's awesome! Thank you... 

 

Do you know what it's called so I can look it up on the Bay of E or similar...?

It's something that came with a new Unipart brand aerial.

 

They were fitted as OEM equipment on Minis and Metros

Ah, okay... seems it will be kinda hard to get one then, or like sonscar (Steve) said, I will need to fashion one myself...

Thank you for the pic!

Try an angle grinder spanner tool. You might get lucky, or at least it would be easy to modify into what you need.

That's also a great idea! I'm currently using a snap ring pliers, but will look into your idea. Thanks!
