How do I get the code from VW? My local Dealership wants me to bring in the car and let them scan it for $75. I know the codes are available without a scan being necessary.
VW Mechanic: vwtech0405, VW Technician replied 6 months ago
Since you have the serial # and the vin # the dealer can look it up for you , without a scan . We used to be able too but not anymore
