Hi Paul and to the forums

How did you break it and why not just replace the 'whip' bit (if that's the bit that's broken)?

Broke mit antenna base as well, in the carwash. Tried to replace the base myself, but it was too difficult, so I let the dealer do it. You'll have to remove a part of the white colored material below the roof, and I was unsure where to pull, and didn't want to break anything. However, the procedure isn't very timeconsuming, and thus not that expensive.

Its very easy to fix iv just done one 2mins ago all you need to do is get between the plastic and rubber at the front of the base with a small screw driver and lever up the plastic shroud pops off and you are left with the metal base this simpily unscrews using a philips screw driver and you can get a new base from the dealer for just over ten pounds!
let me know how you get on and if i can help further

I've bought this replacement part. The rubber base comes off easily but there seems to be no way of splitting the rest of the unit. I've tried several diffent sizes of screwdriver but have only succeeding in marking the part.

Anyone else have any ideas on this?

From the workshop manual

1.Remove the front roof trim.
(Refer to the Body group - Roof trim).
2.Remove the flange nut(C) from the roof antenna(A).
3.Disconnect the feeder cable ( B ) and power connector.
4.Installation is the reverse of removal

There is a picture and the nut ( c) is inside the car above the roof trim

To access the workshop manual follow the routine in the Tips and Tricks sticky. ( The access line in the page source is now 202. )

The only bit of advice I would give regarding working on the i10 is be very very careful of the way the plastics and cables are fitted to the chassis.

Hyundai really have done a solid job in this area. All fixings and fitting are well secured and routed. Its always worth taking an extra 10 minutes when removing a section of plastics or trim to see how they've fitted it.

Hyundai should have put together the internal trim on the Jag, they really have got this part of the build spot on. Very impressive (even if it guts me to admit it !).

You're dead right there Banana. Take your time and think or you can end up breaking a lug or a bracket from the trim as it comes off. All trim removal is covered in the workshop manual but the trick is how to improvise a Hyundai special tool.

About this aerial removal. Perhaps fixerchris has somehow separated the base into two components. The diagram in the online manual clearly shows the complete antenna assembly above the roof with an arrow pointing down and below the roof the antenna cable with nut below it and they have arrows pointing up to the spot where the antenna sits on the roof. But removing the roof trim looks a real pain. Bearing in mind the instructions are to completely remove it from the car perhaps it is possible to just pull it down a bit at the front after removing the sun visors and cabin light to gain access to flange nut C (certainly no need to remove seats). I would certainly have a word with a friendly Hyundai tech before attempting it (or fixerchris).

1.Remove the following items.
A.Front seat, rear seat assembly.
B.Door scuff trim.
C.Front pillar trim.
D.Center pillar trim.
E.Rear pillar trim.
F.Room lamp.
G.Sunvisor.
H.Assist handle.
2.Remove the headliner (A).
