Volkswagen uses a non-standard jack on its antenna cable that won't plug into your new replacement radio. This simple in-line adapter has a standard male Motorola antenna plug on one end, and a female Volkswagen/Audi jack on the other. Just connect your Volkswagen antenna cable to the adapter, then plug it into your new radio, and you're good to go. Warranty: 60 days.

If you're adding an FM modulator to your factory stereo, a second adapter is also required. One adapter will connect to your factory stereo, while the second connects to your factory antenna cable. Your FM modulator installs inline between the two adapters.

My Crutchfield tech filled my shopping cart with EVERYTHING I needed including this adapter, which I would not have known about until pulled the old unit.

Poor reception

Written By davbeck, Sparks, NV on Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It fits correctly with my vehicle and aftermarket stereo, however, I get very poor reception. From some research, I've found that the reason is that my Audi has a powered antenna, which this adapter does not accommodate. Without the power boost, I can only get one station, and spottily at that.
Pros:
Fits correctly
Cons:
Is not powered, and thus gets inadequate reception.

It works but doesn't have a positive latching function therefore I'm not 100% sure it will
stay connected via simple friction fit.

This adapter did not have a tight fit. I had to tape it to the wires to get it to stay together.

Works for BMW E36 (94 325is)

Written By Scott, Austin, Texas on Sunday, August 01, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works fine for the E36. The car had a factory trunk mounted cd changer and the connection for that is a large black wire that looks like COAX. For a few minutes I thought that the wire was the antenna lead and that I was in trouble becuase the connection was a 10 pin connector and the adapter wouldnt work.

After a few minutes i realized that the antenna wire is the smaller black wire with a 90 degree connector on the end.

The adapter fit perfectly and the signal is fine.
