Blaupunkt radio security code not working on my Holden Astra

Had battery in my 2003 Holden Astra replaced last weekend - now the security radio code we have obtained from the dealer does not work. My new Holden dealer (we moved interstate) is quoting a price of $80 to remove the radio, obtain the necessary information from it and then fax off a request to Blaupunkt in Germany for a new code.
VERY annoyed at the cost - I do not believe I should have to pay for some ridiculous, over the top security measure!!

Any other solutions?

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc) 

To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .

If not then POST ANOTHER QUESTION

quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING



note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive 
=================================================
Here is a video showing how to remove your radio from the dashboard. A pair of extractors are required (available from Ebay , etc) but these can be made from 2 pieces of bent, wire coat-hanger or 4 small drills(using the blunt end) or 4 small Allen Keys or 4 small screwdrivers or 4 nails or even 4 darts.

An assistant is useful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4 securing clips

Radio lock out codes are security related to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could get the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions and what info u need to get your cars unique radio code. How do I know this isn’t a stolen radio? The dealer will require the serial number off the radio and proof of ownership of the car it came from.
