These keys slot into each corner of the radio and with little pressure the radio will free from the dash.

Other models of Volkswagen radio are removed by prying the plastic trim surrounding the radio and then removing the 4 screws holding the unit in place.

All VW serial number begin “VWZ” all are unique to your radio. An example of this would be “VWZ1Z3L2345678”.

The process of obtaining the serial number is the same as a standard radio, though there is a difference between the two.

A VW radios serial will contain a”7” as the sixth digit in the serial number. These codes are slightly harder to unlock and are from a completely different Volkswagen database.

How to enter a Volkswagen radio code

Entering the code into a VW radio is easy, all that is required is pre-ser buttons 1-4.

Each of these numbers represent the codes columns, for example pressing button 3 multiple times will change the third digit in the code only.

Here is an example of how to enter a VW radio code [3428]:

  • Start with button “1” and press 3 times until three displays.
  • Move to button “2” and press this four times for the four to show on the screen.
  • Press button “3” twice and a two will show on the display.
  • Finally press button “4” eight times, once finished the correct code will be displayed on the radio.

Now we just need to press the confirmation button on the radio. This varies from different models of Volkswagen radio.

But until this is pressed the radio will not unlock.

The most common confirmation buttons on VW radio are:

  • “Scan” & “Mode”
  • “Enter”
  • Button “5”
  • The “>>” button
