Greetings,

I've just ordered a RCD-510 headunit for my car to replace my OEM Premium7 one.
Since I still have the original RCD-510 installed in my car, is there a way to use VCDS to extract the 4 digit security code that is currently removed from the car? I intend to re-sell this older headunit to someone else, so I'd want the buyer to be able to be able to install this without having the hassle of having to figure out the security code. The hardware info for my headunit can be seen below.

Code:
[FONT=&quot]Address 56: Radio        Labels: 1K0-035-1xx-56.lbl[/FONT]   Part No SW: 1K0 035 180 M    HW: 1K0 035 180 M
   Component: Radio PM6       018 0035  
   Revision: 00018000    Serial number: VWZ5Z7G2174742
   Coding: 0040400
   Shop #: WSC 00000 785 00200
   VCID: 2A75FB2485630112C2-807E

No fault code found.

No, VCDS cannot retrieve radio security codes.

Thanks. I'll keep the radio as backup then, since I can't sell it or extract the security code.
