Metra 40-VW12 Antenna Adapter

Crutchfield customer from Klamath Falls, OR on 9/5/2019

2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked well and was a must for this install in a Mercedes. But with the Cruthchfield custom wiring harness and this little adapter the wiring of this stereo was plug and play in 5 minutes.

Pros: Nice product and a must have item for some cars.

Cons: None. It worked as advertised.

Most factory radios use a standard antenna plus but sometimes you run into a case when the manufacturer changes the plug a now you need this adapter. I didn't even know I needed this and the employees at Crutchfield told me what I needed and explained why. This is a great product and did I mention it is free when you purchase a radio from Crutchfield !

Pros: It's a must have to change your radio It's free with purchase of a radio Inexpensive if you only need the adapter

Cons: None.....

Part was suggested for a 2002 lesabre install. the oem antenna cable has no extra length and use of this adapter on a radio that has the antenna port on the opposite side will result in poor reception. even though it is compatible in fitment the part is not recommended for this vehicle. find an adapter with 6" extension

Pros: Part is functional and fits both ends

Cons: part does not allow antenna cable to reach to radio

Crutchfield said I needed it, and as always, they rock. My wife says that her new Kenwood head unit FM radio sounds better than stock, (she loves to listen to the FM), and I've heard a few replacement head unit "bad reception / fidelity" horror stories, so I'm extremely relieved for this swap to work out so well.

You need a flexible cable adapter. Adapter does not work in Oldsmobile Aurora 2001-2003 because the antenna cable from the car is in a fixed mount.

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. It saved me a trip to the store, which could have saved my life, or someone else's, if I had been in an accident on that trip. It for sure saved me gas and frustration.

Poor reception

davbeck from Sparks, NV on 1/16/2013

2001 Audi A6

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.
