Just had the same problem. Removing the radio is first problem - you need a special kit which you can buy from halfords, or get friendly mechanic to do it for you. Then get your Code by inputting serial number (written on metal of radio NOT label) into one of the websites (I got mine from IRC UK) but you will probably have to pay for this. When you have the code do this: 1. switch radio off (with keys in ignition) so date and time are showing. 2. Hold down main volume/on/off button at same time as holding AS button for about 5 secs. 3. Insert your Code by pressing button 1 for first number (ie if first number is 6 you need to press button 1 six times), button 2 for second number, etc. 4. when you have inserted all 4 number of the code you got from the website/garage hold down the AS button on its own.
This worked for me!

SOURCE: NEED CODE FOR VDO CDR 2005
Unfortunately codes for the majority of SIEMENS/VDO/DELCO radios (including your CDR2005) are not available for free from anywhere on the Internet.
Only available from your Main Dealer or a Decoding Service

the majority of SIEMENS/VDO codes (including your CDR2005) will
NOT be available for free (or
cheap) from anywhere on the Internet as
access is required to the original factory database…which is not commercially
Try your Main Dealer or a Decoding Service or your local Car Radio / Audio Shop (who are normally the cheapest option) who will connect it to a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)
