It's easy enough to replace anyway, you don't need to take the entire head liner down. Just unscrew the rear roof handles, unclip the side strips at the back and gently pull the head liner down enough to get a spanner in to undo the retaining nut and out the aerial base comes, change the seals or the entire base, whatever you are doing, and then put back together in reverse order. You may need a second pair of hands to hold the aerial base to the roof of the car as you do the nut up mind, makes it easier..
