Might not work straight away, sometimes take a couple of movement through it's full cycle. If that doesn't work, it will require removal of the antenna, and then you can replace the flexible coil strip that pushes and pulls the antenna. If that fails it's replacement time. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot. http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
