Hello my name is ***** ***** than you for using just answer. Since your stereo is new, would you please get me the serial number from the side of the unit ( vwz4z7......). With this number, I can obtain the radio code, but, it may not be until tomorrow, thank you.

Thanks for getting back to me! By "new" I actually meant "replacement". It's a used one I got off eBay (sorry, should've mentioned that before). The serial number is ***** I did put my old radio's faceplate on it since it was in better condition though. Would that make any difference with the code? If so, I can also get the old radio's serial number.Thank you!

The new serial number should suffice. thank you.
