Retrieve second hand Ford Focus X reg 2000 (UK) stereo code

Hello! Have recently had the automatic gearbox replaced and my mechanic informed me that he had to turn off the battery so now the radio/cassette player does not work and its asking for a 'Code'. I have done some research and found out that I need a seriel no which I don't know how to retrieve and then I have come across several sites asking for money between £1.99-7 for them to retrieve the code. I don't know how legit they are.

I am confused as to what to do next and I miss my music!
I am about to go to a Ford dealer but I am concerned about being overcharged.
I would appreciate some pointers and thank you very much in advance!

I had the same problem. I went online and found

They emailed my code within a few hours. Pretty cheap, cheaper than a new radio and a lot less hassle than phoning around.

Go to any repair shop and they can retrieve it with a scanner. Call Ford first,only certain vehicles from 1998 on need radio codes,not all ford products.

Broken Ford Focus 3 door 04 reg Window Regulator. Can I replace myself?

If you search Google for Ford Focus Window Regulator replacement, you should find a great deal of information. The front doors are different from the rear (sedan, station wagon) doors. I've replaced the rear window regulator and it wasn't hard but the front window regulator is very different from the rear regulator.
