If I remember correctly there should be 4 holes on the face of the stereo. 1 in each corner, sort of. You need to get the removal key for your VW. It should look like somthing like a U. You should be able to pick those up at a local store. I think one time I even saw walmart had them. Another option would be to stop at a stereo shop and see if you could borrow the tool or let them take it out, but it might cost money any way. Then once you have the tool insert the keys until they click then, in a way, spread them and this should push the clips in and let you pull the radio out. Good luck.

nope eventually that's what you'll have to do. cause nothing last in them as electrical exept engine and transmission. you wont be able to diagnose radio, speaker or use the steering wheel skip/ vol button. with right wiring anything possible.

Need my stereo code for a 1999 vw passat i changed my battery and now i have safe on my stereo


hi
Take down the vin # and call your local dealer - they will give you the codes on proof of ownership. This is to keep people from benefiting from stealing your radio.

After installing a new stereo in my 2004 VW the check engine light came on.


The most likely cause is an incorrectly wired iso plug on the stereo ,your vehicle has a Diagnostic com wire to the factory fitted stereo system if you short this wire it will cause various problems such as Mil lamp on etc.
I would advise youto disconnect the new stereo and then have it fitted professionally by someone who knows which wire to disconnect to stop the Mil coming on.
