RE: AM RECEPTION FROM RADIO

Start the car, and turn on the radio, have someone tap on the rear glass, if the reception changes with each hit, then it's usually the AM antenna module. Window tint can also affect reception. The antenna module for the AM is behind the left "C" pillar. If you pull away the left rear passenger inside door trim seal,you can carefully pop off the pillar, carefully, because it can break or, bend. You should see a green/blue little box that could fit in the palm of your hand, that is what you want to replace. You can see how it comes out. That is what we always replace when the AM reception goes to crap. Happened a lot in the W210.
