V40 antenna connector & cable

Post by Nchuar » Tue Apr 14, 2020 1:58 pm

Could anyone please help me, my car radio in my 2003 V40 1.9TD was not picking up any radio stations and when I checked the connector it had broken off the cable. I have been advised I need a new connector and short length of cable to connect to the original cable one and I am wondering (before I order buy one) is the 40-VL30 antenna the correct one to buy.

A garage told me I would have to get one from a volvo dealership directly and could cost a lot????

Which end broke? The radio or antenna end?

I suppose it doesn't make much difference.
I spliced a new end onto my S40 antenna wire using one I snipped off a junkyard find.
