Didn't fit properly

Written By JasonC, Utah on Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For an antenna adapter it looks to work fine but the connections didn't match up to the factory system in my VW CC

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: didn't have the proper connections

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Had much difficulty because was sent a single plug adapter which fit in to the satellite radio antenna but not the AM/FM. Once we got it straightened out that my Jetta has a dual plug adapter it went smooth.

Pros: Worked great once I got correct adapter

Cons: Might have to go by VIN when ordering adapter to get correct one for vehicle. Apparently 2010 Jetta made changes in that year.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replacement Radio for my VW had a Motorola antenna connector while my car had two antennas using a dual Fakra connector. Radio came with an adapter with a single Fakra. Radio reception was spotty. Ordered the European Antenna Adapter with dual Fakra connector. Fit perfectly- very easy install. Radio reception now great. Highly recommended.

Pros: Fits perfectly

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Be careful to get the correct adapter. There are two types used in VW Jetta Sport wagon. Tell customer service representative what type of antenna you have (short roof or long antenna) so you get the right one!

Pros: Good reception. Easy to install

Cons: Have 50/50 chance of getting the correct adapter since VW uses both types. Depends on antenna type!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the second adapter that Crutchfield sent me and it still didn't fit my car. I had to cut the plug in half because my car had 2 single plugs instead of the dual plug shown in picture

Pros: it works and reception is great

Cons: didn't really fit my car

OEM adaptation!

Works great, no downgraded radio reception

Pros: Not bulky at all, will fit behind your aftermarket radio with no problems.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Needed this product to install an aftermarket Alpine unit in a 2013 Volkswagen Golf. Crutchfield is your one stop shopping page !

Pros: Item worked exactly as stated. Instructions were clear, easy to install

Cons: As noted by others, the reception is not as good as the OEM

Works, but no wiring information.

Written By Dave k>, MI on Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Certainly worked as advertised, but didn't come with any wiring information. It only has one wire coming off it, but I wasn't sure if that wire was a simple "AM Antenna", or if I should run power to it. Turns out you need to run power to it.

Pros: Easy install.

Cons: No wiring information provided.

Not as good as OEM

While this adapter was easy to install and does work, I have noticed a noticeable decrease in my reception clarity.

Pros: Easy to install and does work

Cons: Receptions does not seem to be as good as OEM

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This antenna was very easy to install. No splicing wires just plug and play

Cons: The only thing I can say negative is that some of my radio stations I get some static but I hardly listen to the turner radio anyway
