Hi,

Have many people gone down the route of chopping off the iso connectors from the cars loom and putting a quadlock connector straight onto the loom? This enabling you to ditch the PnP adapter?

It seems a pretty straight forward job, or are there any hidden complications?

Dave,

I have already got one of those pre built adapters, just thinking of future and how it would reduce the risk of any faults, and also I just like doing things properly. Not to mention the fact that im bored and need something to do!!

Think it will be an easy job too.

Well OK, I know connectors are always the weakest link, but you would surely void any warranty you have.

I bought a kit and a loose quadlock from Kufatec plus loads of extra pins so that I could test it all on my workbench before I starting ripping my one din centre console appart.

I agree it would look better, but not until my warranty has expired !

I did it on 2 RS6's because of the limited space with the adaptors etc. It took about 3 hours to repin every wire into the QUADlock with CD changer, phone & BOSE.

Craig,

Was it a pretty easy job? Did you solder the new pins or just use pliers?

Every wire was crimped and soldered.

Cheers Dave,

If you dont mind, or do halfords sell them? Will they crimp the pins you get from Kufatec ok, all sizes?

It's possible Halfords do them, they do the ISO connectors, but I never looked.

It does the two bigger sizes perfectly, but the small one is so fidderly it's a challenge even with an expensive tool.

Really depends on how steady your hands are.

N.B. - The site now shows a picture of a tool with only two sizes but mine has got three, not sure if they have changed it at all ?
