Hi Mate
Is it genuine,
And where from
Thanks
John
yes genuine base, i believe they cut the original and paint it.
I replaced due to poor dab signal and the original saw better days, as i have a aftermarket radio it shows me dab signal strength, with the old one i was only getting a constant 1 bar of signal, with the new one i saw a signal increase to 3 bars. this was tested today within a 3 min window of replacing, i got it from Short Aerial Mast with Genuine Ford Aerial Base (Painted) (paintmodz.co.uk) I'm not saying you will get better signal but it did for me (y)

A rear wheel bearing kit for my wife's C-max, identical part to ST model. Arrived from Belgium within 48 hours of ordering, putting our domestic postal services to absolute shame.

The old one came out with surprising ease considering it's an original part that has been on over 18 years.

Once you have the airbox out it’s an easy job , I went for the cutting it in half option 🤣🤣🤣
Its currently running a K&N Gen2 kit :sick: that was already fitted when I bought the car. I’ve been very lazy with my modding but now I have a load of bits I’m sure I’ll get cracking!! Mod XRS here I come!!
