Purchased a new Varta battery for my 2016 VW Tiguan 4WD 2.0L diesel. It is not from a dealer- but a genuine Varta item.
My dilemma is this: The battery is stated as being BEM compatible but the numbers on the battery stickers do not seem to have the same format at the OEM BEM sticker.
I need to code the new battery in VCDS and I'm not exactly sure which numbers to use. The only two numbers I have on the new battery are a serial number: 016987 144503 and a 'Varta Code' on a QR sticker, which is A 26 E39 902 8OC.
Can anyone offer some guidance?
