Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 99 VW Beetle and I though that my code was 040898 because that was what I found on the sticker. I still cant take the SAFE out. Can anyone help???
My VW dealer will provide code for free (after verifying ownership), but charge $100 to take out / return radio as they need radio serial #. radio serial # on right side. remove/return radio a pain, have done it so many times i now have it down. let me know if need help on that.

Hi, this is a common problem when people buy second hand cars and disconnect the battery to work on the car, they put the battery back on and find out the code needs putting in the stereo.
The problem is unless the original owners wrote it down in side the owners manual the only other option is take your car to the main dealers and they will then give you the code you need to take the car with you and maybe the log book they wont give this info out over the phone just in case the stereo has been stolen.
Their is no other way of getting this code as they dont give them out and as the codes are totally random their is no way of writing a program to hack these codes.
Sorry their is no easy fix for this but the upside is they wont charge you for giving you the code but you need to take the car with you then when they give you the code write it down in case you need it in the future or if you sold the car pass this info on to the new owner as they should have passed this on to you.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
