So I retrofitted an RNS-E mk1 into my old 53plate 1.6 A3 3dr SE and the radio worked really well never having too many issues with radio reception. I've just brought an 05 plate 2.0tdi 3DR sport and have fitted the RNS-E into this and used the same loom and ariel adapter and now get really bad radio reception.
The SE had a single din concert which upgraded to the double din and RNS-E.
The sport has bose and have moved the bose pin on the loom from pin 5 to pin 7. I recevied the car with a symphony installed which had been retrofitted as it had the same style adapter loom and ariel adapter. I presumed they'd have similar ariel systems.
I have taken the boot cover off and now seen that they have 2 very different ariels. Pictures below, which would be best to use or adapter for the RNS-E, I can't afford to do the full 200 conversion. Would it be easy to swap the 2 ariels amplifiers over?
I've read the guide on fitting the rns ariel and I don't think either of mine are that system.
These are bits off of my new car.
It also had this loose connector not plugged into anything on the screen???
This is my old cars system
has this connector that the sport doesn't have??
And this is where the loose connector is
Sorry its alot but I've tried to add everything so that it makes it easier to understand.
Should I try to swap the systems over? I'm not too sure what the 2 systems are and how the differ when looking at the diagrams here as neither are the one I want I don't think??? Converting symphony II antenna system use with RNSe
p.s. NHN if you read this thanks for the steering cu, everythings is working great now, Thanks....
