Renault Scenic - 3 queries

Just getting familiar with my Scenic (88k on it) and I have four questions:

1) I'm hoping to find a replacement aerial from a scrappie tomorrow -- what other Renault models have the same aerial? (Silicone sealant at the ready!)

2) Below the leftside headlight is what I take to be the intercooler(?); the outside of the cover, which two big pipes lead to, has a long-term film of oil on it; is this normal or an ominous sign?

3) What is the minimum speed that you find you can cruise a level road in 5th? Mine is not happy below 40mph; other than that the engine seems fine; is this usual or a sign that something needs looked at?

4) What is the thing a bit behind the radiator fan that looks like a lawnmower start cord?
