Has anyone else experienced this when opening or closing the roof? I would not have believed it if I hadn't seen if for myself. I have a feeling the dealer is not going to believe me. I was hoping that it was a common problem.

I've never had that problem with my 2007 - there must be a fairly significant bend to your antenna. Can't you just bend it the other way for a while to get it to straighten out? A replacement antenna shouldn't amount to much money, in any case. Thre is a set of posts on this forum talking about a "shortie" replacement antenna, for a little bit sleeker look. It would also probably solve the problem. (See the C70 Antenna thread.)

Thanks, I think I might try that. The antenna is pulled out quite a bit from being stretched and bent. I'm sure it's toast.

I am new to this forum and I am interested in purchasing a "shortie " antenna for my 2008 C70. I have search all over the net without success. Can someone tell me where I can get one? Thanks.

Have you tried to just remove completely the antenna?
You could be surprised with the results.
At least in Europe/France you just don't need it...

I have a 2008 C70 which does the same thing, every now and then the aerial will decide to get trapped in the trunk, I now monitor progress in the wing mirror. Is there an alternative, a retractable soulution???

I have not seen any retractable antennas, but there are third-party replacement antennas which are shorter in length and visually much less obtrusive; perhaps they would also be less likely to get snagged by the top. See http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f115c31
