Question Wiring Harness for R170 Audio 10?

I'm trying to install an aftermarket radio without the need to do any soldering, but I can't seem to find the correct wiring harness to connect the existing connector to my new radio.

The following is the closest I can find, but it says it is for the R171 onwards:

CT20MC06 Mercedes CLS, E Class,SLK Wiring Harness Adaptor With Antenna Adaptor

Will this work? If not, can you point me towards the right thing?

" without the need to do any soldering" - no 15 year old nerds around ?

Unless your new radio is a compatible Becker, there is no way I know of.

For mine I just made an adapter cable using the head unit stub (no two alike) and a Scosche VW01B Power/Speaker Connector. Schematics have been posted many times.

I thought the audio 10 had standard ISO connectors. Unless you’re trying to add new functions it’s just plug and play.

Or am I mistaken?
