Rear Defrost causes static on Radio

When I use the Rear Defroster on my '99 540IA, the radio is muffled by what seems to be an electrical interference static sound.

Does anyone have an idea what should be done to eliminate the static noise?

seems to me i remember a bulliten on that complaint. although i can't remember it exactly i think either a new radio antenna amp is installed or a ground wire is either tightened up or relocated. you might check with your dealer and see if the bulliten does pertain to your problem
