Hmm it might be worth purchasing that adapter in case. What I do not get though is the connection is one long ISO cable that runs from behind the stereo and speedometer to the a pillar and a pillar to the headliner (behind the light). So by completely removing the ISO cable and replacing it with FAKRA would eliminate the whole ISO connection adapter need wouldn't it?

I wonder what the two different connections are for? FM & DAB?

Thanks pal.

There must be a difference between the standard cable and the DAB one or Ford wouldn't bother with two identical parts.
I'm assuming the cable is rigged differently, maybe with an extra internal strand to allow carriage of the DAB signal from the helical part of the replacement aerial.
A DAB signal is a much higher frequency than FM so different aerial lengths would apply anyway.

On Fords Microcat system the replacement cable is shown as Fakra/ISO so buying a ISO to Fakra adaptor is a prudent move seeing as the radio you've bought shows two Fakra.
Last thing you want is to have your nice shiny DAB radio in your mitts only to find the connections don't fit.
Better to have and not need than to need and not have :)

I'm kind of thinking I brought the wrong unit now? :-(. Would you recommend buying the kit originally highlighted? And then see how it get on?

P.S - where did you buy your kit from? I cannot find anywhere in Leicester that would stick this?

Sorry I missed this reply. I will buy this adapter in the mean time and tomorrow I will purchase the main kit. I will try to completely remove the ISO aerial altogether and replace with the DAB one I bug from ford. Failing that I will have the adapter you linked to as a back up. Should I be able to purchase all of this from Sandicliffe Ford?

If you give them the Finis codes I posted previously they will source the parts for you.
They may take a few days to come through unless held in stock.
I'd say it's also a good idea to buy a tube of clear silicone sealant from a hardware shop to ensure the new aerial mount is waterproof to the roof too.
