Additional information about Volkswagen radio codes and decoding

Using our Volkswagen stereo code service, you will not only be saving yourself money, but also the additional time which can be involved in trying to get your code from a vehicle main dealer. Most main dealers will request that you first book in your car with them, along with having to take proof of ownership along before they apply for the Volkswagen code.
Under most circumastances the code they supply will be derived frome either the vehicle registration or the Chassis number. If the radio has been replaced at any stage in its lifetime, this will be the incorrect code.

There are a various reasons why a stereo code based on the vehicle chassis number or registration may not work, these include:

I would recommend you anyone. Many thanks . Kevin F

hi , I would just like to thank you for your efficient service. Your email site was very simple to follow and showing how to take the car stereo also helped. I was going to go to a main dealer , but so glad I chose your service.. Jaswir Kaung


A quick note of thanks for your service.......yeak I know I paid but the fiver was worth it! My wife's beloved 1997 Fiesta Ghia had a minor job done at a local garage who disconnected the battery! We had mislaid our service manual with the radio code. Removal tools came from a metal coat hanger and I think the total time from cutting the coat hanger, sending the code, paying by PayPal, resetting the radio and locking the car took no more than 3 minutes!!! .
