I swapped the RCD-310 stereo on my 2013 Tiguan a few years back for a genuine VW RCD-510, and neglected to get the security code for the 310. Now, after it sitting in my garage for years, I want to sell it, but I cannot do it without providing the security code.
Dealership says they can only do it using a scanner, and the old head unit has to be plugged in (I am not going to do this).
Does anyone know any other ways this can be done? I read on the forum that the dealership can just punch in my VIN and it will automatically give the code for the cars original stereo, but they say they can't do it.

Appreciated your input. Happy new year.

Dealer used to give out the code if you provided proof of ownership but not anymore. Now they will code the radio if installed in the car for $125 but they will not give you the code.

Best bet is to use one of the multiple online services for radio codes. Ebay has some you just send them the radio serial number and you'll get an email with the code.

I used one of these services last year for an RNS-315 security code. Use the least expensive with a decent feedback history. Worked perfectly. --g
