Hi everyone. I was about to ask about poor radio reception, but had a quick search first, and there is talk of a retro fit 'brass strip' elsewhere on the forum. Does this apply to my 01 reg S60? would a dealer have to do this, or is it DIY?

Can anyone shed some light...Thanks!

You could do it your self as long as you find a brass strip.

Have you tinted your windows recently? I think the antenna is in the window and often tint has some metallic in it and will cause problems with the reception.

I have a 2002 S60 and got my windows tinted. I have not experienced any problems with reception. If possible you might want to check all connections as a loose one might reduce the signal strength.

Also make sure the bolt that holds the antenna booster it tight.

Does anyone know where the antenna connections are in the S60? I have a '01 S60 and I can't seem to find the antenna.

Thanks,
Charlie

Does anybody know if there is a TSB for the bad radio reception that requires the brass strip? Does this strip take care of the problem? I get a lot of static on the FM reception and a constant hum on AM.
Thanks in advance
