Plastic trim and aerial

hello to everyone

Just a quick couple of things, My clio is a 2000/2001 1.4 sport, and the plastic trim on the i think seems to peel a bit at the front corner sides on the roof (seems really badly put on by renault), is this common?

Also when I was washing the car the other day, the aerial which is at the front middle of the car, was hit by the hose slightly and rotated on its base a little bit, seems fine and Ive put it back into position, but would this indicate the housing the aerial sits in is loose or should it be ok? seems fairly secure and nothing is leaking (yet) I took the interior light console out inside the front of the car and there doesnt seem to be anyl eakage, bearing this in mind is it worth just leaving it (if it isnt broke don't fix it) or with the aerial being able to move, take preventative measures before it gets worse? (if it does get worse)

I did notice the aerial nut is quite tricky to get to even with the light console out, so if I dont need to do anything Id obviously rather just leave it

maybe Im just being paranoid....

Cheer, Ed

Hi Ed, if your aerial seems to be a little bit loose it will be worth trying to sort it, If you can undo the nut try putting some silicone sealer or aquarium sealer under the actual rubber seal at the bottom of the aerial and retighten the nut.
If you do get a leak from here it will drip into your overhead console.

Its not really loose as such...the hose (part of a jetwash) got caught and forced it to move, but since then its pretty secure, Im going to try and remove the console and have a closer look though just in case..

I might just monitor it and take the console off every few days while its raining to check for any moisture....there has been none so far, and if it stays like that for the next few weeks fingers crossed it'll be fine... I dont want to risk trying to do anything if its ok as it is, just in case i further damage it!
