About Aerial Manuals

The Toyota manual aerial receives radio waves so that you can listen to the radio in your car.

Aerials are usually made of stainless steel, sometimes chrome, rubber or aluminum.  Manual aerials can be retractable and non-retractable and have different mounts, including pillar mounted and roof mounted. The Toyota pillar mounted aerial is mounted on a pillar bracket, which fixes to the door pillar of your car, next to the windscreen. The Toyota roof mounted aerial is fixed to your car roof but can also be attached to the hood, with a screw. 

The Toyota manual aerial is operated by hand and requires you to adjust it while outside. The Toyota manual aerial is connected to your car stereo by an aerial cable which houses the conductor needed to receive radio reception, and the Toyota manual aerial is basically an extension of the center conductor inside the aerial cable.

The manual non retractable aerial is thin and flexible but, being constantly exposed, it will erode over time due to weather damage and is more likely to be broken accidentally.  With a retractable manual aerial, you can extend and retract the aerial fully by hand, which means it is less likely to be accidentally broken off and is less exposed to the weather and high speeds, but the collapsible, hollow metal rods that allow this telescopic action can break. The Toyota manual aerial, like most parts, will end up wearing out and need replacing. A manual aerial will usually work well for about 4-6 years before you need to think about buying a new one, but careful and regular cleaning to avoid damage from dirt will help this part to last longer.

Toyota trivia

  • The Toyota company got its start making automated looms in 1033. Founder Sakichi Toyoda even invented the automated loom and then sold them off to try and get into the car industry. There is still an arm of Toyota that is still in the textile industry!
  • As well as the best selling car of all time, Toyota is also responsible for the longest-running production on a car model ever. The Toyota model Land Cruiser started production in 1951, and as of 2019 has sold over 10 million units!
  • Although Toyota started making its first cars in 1937, these were specifically produced to contribute to Japan's war effort. It wasn't until 1947 that they started producing cars for civilians.
  • They might be one of the biggest and well-known brand names in the world, but Toyota is still very much a family business. Every CEO so far has been a descendant of the original founder.
  • The founder's son, Kiichiro Toyoda, did a trip around the US to get inspiration for car designs. That's why those early Toyota cars look more than a little bit like Chevrolets and Dodge Power Wagons.
