    As the title says really. I have a wire attached to a tax disc holder which is stuck on windscreen. Could this be it? If so, it seems a bit crude.

    I don't use this as my tax disc holder so I want to remove it. Thought I'd better check before I snipnthe wire.

    Probably the rear screen demister.

    Your antenna is in the rear bumper, the tax disc is probably for a phone that was once fitted

    Is the rear bumper antenna to replace the version that sticks up from the rear quarter?

    I will snip the unsightly tax disc holder then. There was a phone once fitted as the microphone is visible near the interior light. Will remove this to.

    Thanks :eek:

    The one that sticks up is the GPS antenna
