dab aerial
« on: July 29, 2020, 05:57:07 PM »
hi everyone,  back in an ed after doing a swop with my mk4 r32,  question is have fitted an rcd510 dab but can't get a signal with the dab. I already had a dab windscreen mount aerial , so fitted that but the connection on it was not fakra, so ordered an adapter from tps, fitted that but still no joy,  the aerial connector on the back of the headunit has a tiny brass thing in it , this seems to be stopping the fakra fitting flush with the back of the headunit, is this correct .  is there a better aerial to use , thanks in advance

No lead unless you can find someone selling both together on ebay. Try "dabonwheels" "connects2" plus others

not sure they will still have stock but certainly worth a call
