That is a big "got'cha" that was designed in by the insane engineers. From everything I have been told about Volkswagen radios, if you do not know the code, the dealer will be more than happy to sell you a new radio. Even they have no way to get the code. You can try asking at the dealership to verify that. If they can get a code for you, it will not be for free. Volkswagen and General Motors are two of the best companies at separating you from your money after the sale.

I work at VW.

Pull the radio out give me the serial number. It will most likely start with "VWZ."

I can access your code with that information.

Thank you F4I_guy. Do you work for a dealership or for the manufacturer? Any chance you can get radio service manuals for me?

I am just a technician. I have access to all their online manuals, however it is only by username/password.

You are "just" a technician? That means you have way more common sense than the guys who design cars.
