It was easy to replace mine Barry.
Just remove the overhead lamp and you will see the aerial base in the roof.
Depends on which DAB aerial you get, you may need some adapters for connecting the power cable and the aerial cable to your new aerial.

Follow the original wires Barry.
They go down the A-pillar on the driver's side. You just pull away the rubber door seal and slide off the speaker cover then the A-pillar plastic cover unclips to reveal the wiring channel.
