I want to remove my concert radio Cd but I have lost the code so if I ever refit it it wont work. Can I get the code off the radio before removing the power.

Audi Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 8 years ago
No, you must contact your local audi dealer, they will need your vin number and the serial number off the vehicle to look up the code, they will not ususally do this over the phone for security reasons, so you will need to take the vehicle in with you and the registration to prove you own it, Tim

Relist: Incomplete answer.
I know this can be done without taking it to a dealer as other people have had it done.
