It seems only a VW dealer can give you the code--they look it up from a database, based on both the car's DIN # and a part number on the radio itself. You can take the car to a car audio shop and they will remove the radio for you and then provide the necessary part numbers. Call the dealership and along with the VIN number they will provide you with the code. Once you have the code there are several steps you have to take to input the code.
