    Changing battery

    Hi,

    I need to change the battery in my Jetta.

    Can I just swap it out as per this guide...

    Or will I need the radio code afterwards??

    Thanks

    I'm not sure which year they changed over to storing the radio code in the ecu. You could ask at a dealers for the radio code if you take in your VIN number and proof of ownership. If they have it, it should be provided FOC.

    Hi,

    I found the code in the user handbook. I changed the battery and didn't need to enter the code afterwards.
