It may or may not need a code. If a previous owner disabled the code then you won't need it, if they didn't you will.

If you don't have a code and it asks then yes it's the dealer but you may need the VIN number for the donor car.

We're only talking about radio codes here. Actually coding the radio to the car shouldn't be required.

Just checked the Audio 20 manual and there is No mention anywhere about a code or anything relating to requiring a code should the unit be removed .

A good few sites on the web that will provide radio codes for free if you provide details about your new unit - serial no etc.
Work through the first few entries the free ones are further on...
