    Or no adapter at all more likely. You need a PC9-404 RCA input adapter, this feeds the rear pre-out to the rear/sub amp. Plug the rear RCA's into one end and the plug into the Audi loom, then connect the blue flying lead on the adapter to the power antenna or remote on cable on the new HU and job done. Ensure you have RCA's on the HU first and that the loom behind the HU has not been butchered.

    ^^ in fact it will be the blue wire for sure. it is the power 'on' for the amp. it is not part of the loom either so it may have been missed. blue to blue. its called antenna.

    You will have a multi coloured plug on the Audi loom (blue/green/yellow) this contains the feeds to the rear/sub amp and the remote switch on 12v to the amp to switch it on with the HU. You plug this into the PC9-404 red plug. Then plug the RCA's into the HU rear RCA's and the blue flying lead on the adapter to the power antenna lead on the HU.
