Re: Renault Laguna II - Interiors - Bad FM reception when heated rear screen switched
No other solution?
Am i the only one with this problem at Laguna 3 HB?
The problem has been inherrent since the concept was introduced. There is no substitute for a good external aerial, there are so many designs about and simple to fit it amazes me why manufacturers use the heater element as an aerial. It may work in areas of good reception but, from experience, not in poor reception areas ( as here in mountainous Wales), due mainly to the directionality of the element. An external aerial has 360 degree reception,and is mounted away from interference sources, in extreme cases you can fit an amplifed type (some shark fin ones have an amp built in) which will involve some minor additional wiring but giving much better results.
