When you get the radio repaired or whatever you are doing, you can try the codes on line but they seldom work so you wind up at the dealer to have them reprogram in the codes.


I was told by a VW mechanic that the radio code is on the back of the radio. Have to pull the radio to get to it. It is a 4 number code. There are slight differences in the re-programing of different year Cabrios. I found the procedure online and on youtube.
