This is a guide on how to replace the aerial on a phase 2 (2000-2004) Volvo V40.Remove the speaker cover and the light and disconnect it. If you have the dog guard fittings, remove the two screws and it will come out

Undo the two screws pointed by the yellow arrows and carefully unclip the panel which is held by two clips (see next photo too)
Remove this black clip

There is some adhesive double side tapeor something holding the roof lining at the edge of the boot. Carefully undo that until you can see the clamp. This clamp was a bit tricky, until I actually checked VADIS. VADIS says to turn it 1/4 of a turn and remove. Also see next picture

Remove the rear Grab Handle. You need to unclip the plastic cover and undo the 2 bolts. Then carefully lower the roof lining taking care not to crease it. Undo the nut securing the aerial base and you are done

Hope this helps
