Question.
Were you having any problems with the aerial either not fully retracting or extending , before this occurred ?

Unfortunately, that confirms what I have noticed , it is the aerial that kills a really good radio.
It will be the aerial control circuit component failure that needs repairing , the radio side will be fine.
Finding a gifted amateur ,or professional to repair it.......................good luck.
Make sure you fix the aerial problem before connecting a good radio.

Can you still get them?? And are they difficult to fit?? Also will my radio work after I've changed the aerial component.. Or will I need a new radio aswell??

First problem.
Removing the radio , get the radio out and you will see EXACTLY the type of radio you will need to replace it.
Different radios, have different sockets !!!!
Second problem.
Only a Probe aerial has the right connectors and unless you know what you are doing..............good luck.

Are there any good car radio installers in your area ?
