    quadlock lead please help

    okay guys

    i need to sort a lead to convert a quadlock stereo to the older style plugs.

    I understand that this one will do the job from ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RNS-E-adapter-...1%7C240%3A1318

    will this lead nead modifying in anyway or will it work as is.

    However, as i was hoping to fit the double din etc tomorrow, i have tried to source something from local ice shops.

    The first shop said it is impossible to do because quadlock is canbus and so the stereo wont be able to power on etc blah .

    Second ice shop said yes it is possible but they will have to do some wiring as they will have to find a wire of some sort (cant remeber what he called it) and it would involve having to go behind dash so may need to remove a few interior parts. ?! wants to charge £70

    can someone please tell what is right so i get the right thing to do the job :sly:[​IMG]

    I have a 2003 A3 and that look like the adaptor I bought for my satnav. As you say, this brings the wiring up to the current loom connectors used in the A3/S3.

    Just to clarify - you have the older ISO connectors and have a newer double din stereo with the quadlock that you want to fit after you fit the new cage?

    If you have the quadlock connector fitted to your car and want an aftermarket stereo, that adaptor wont work

    if your fitting the cage yourself, make sure you go prepared - mentally!!! the cage is a tight fit and you WILL sweat!
