I just got a 96 BMW 328ic and love it. However, the radio seems to have problems. It is the standard Alpine BMW radio. The lights are dim on the display which I can live with but FM was crackling now does not come in at all. AM and WB come in perfectly. Is this something that looks easy to repair or should I just get a new radio?

The anntena is behind the trim panel on the driver side above the rear shelf. Take it off and you'll see a black box. Make sure the connections are good. Also, look at the rear window. You will see a wire connecting the box to the window. Make sure it is intact.
