    Please help need radio code

    Hi i need the radio code for my Astra G 1.6 club as it has just been collected from the dealers after major work, and they have not reset the radio and they do not have the code to do so.

    Any ideas where i might get it from?

    believe it or not, it's very easy for dealers to get hold of the code.

    I had this problem a few weeks ago, I was told by Vauxhall that if the car was less than 5 years old the dealer the car originated from would have it on record but after that Vauxhall would have to contact the radio manufacturer and they would get back to Vauxhall with the code, the whole thing could take up to a week and cost you £18+VAT
    Another option is to a website and give them your serial code and can work out your unlocking code from that. It still costs you £15 mind.

    Does anyone here know how to work out the code from the serial code?

    Surely the dealer should pay this as they messed it up in the first place.
    The car was bought from them on the 4th March 2007 and the previous owner say they passed the spare key and the car pass onto them but they can't find it.
    Also how easy to replace the head unit?

    Got it sorted for nothing. A google search got me a free prog that revealed the code after i removed the unit and typed in the unit numbers.
