DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
Antenna
All vehicles are equipped with On Glass Antenna's
which consist of the following components:
On glass printed elements
Amplifier module
Cable assemblies
Sedan
The sedan antenna uses a combination of the heated
backlite grid (FM) and several elements on the glass
above the heated backlite (AM).
The amplifier module is located on the left hand side
C pillar structure.
Wagon
The wagon antenna is located on the left hand rear
quarter glass and uses the inner elements for FM and
the outer elements for AM.
The amplifier module is located on the upper side rail
directly above the center of the left hand side quarter
glass.
Ute
The ute antenna uses elements on the backlite as
well as the two quarter glass's. The heated backlite
elements are used for FM and the two quarter glass
elements as well as the elements above the heated
backlite are used for AM.
The amplifier module is located on the left hand side
quarter panel adjacent to the heated backlite
connection. Wiring attached to the quarter trims links
the AM elements between the rear and side glass's.
Window Tint Warning
Window tinting is not recommended on glass with
printed antenna elements.
Metallised window tint material significicantly
degrades radio reception on both the AM and FM
bands.
Non metallised dye based tint material is an
improvement over metallised tint material but still
degrades radio reception.
