    Hi, I've decided to sell me original VW Gamma Radio now that I have retrofitted the VW MFD Sat Nav Radio. However, I've already posted the radio and the buyer is requesting the radio code which I cannot find anywhere. I have never needed the radio code myself, despite disconnecting the...

    After replacing the radio, I bought a mp3 to cassette adapter to enjoy my music on my phone (safely :thumbup:). Except I am hearing a lot of static with it. This just started recently. Bought another adapter to see if it still happens and it does. The AM/FM radio doesnt have any static at all...

    Very old school problem here. I use a tape since its the cheapest and in my opinion the best source for my iphone music. Recently its been giving me issues where it plays side A, B, then spits it out. I tried different tapes and nothing works. Any ideas? Thanks! 2004 Passat GLS, Monsoon radio

    I use the cassette to run my pioneer inno xm radio, but have recently gotten clicks and then the error message followed by automatic ejection when I put the cassette in. I tried a new cassette with no help. Any ideas?

    Hi All I have recently purchased a 2002 Passat TDI 130. It comes with the standard Gamma radio and Climate control. It's configured with the Climate Control at the top, then the single DIM Gamma cassette player, and finally a hole (not very technical!) My question is: How easy is it to add...

    I thought a product would be out there that could provide ipod or any bluetooth enabled media player to play via the cassette slot. I took a look around google and couldnt find one that is a2dp (stereo quality) capable. Anyone have any ideas or see a product around? It would be nice to hook...

    The radio in my 03 GLS recently stopped playing any cassette tape. Whenever I put one in it just makes a little bit of noise like it is trying to play, but then after about 10 seconds the radio beeps and says "Tape Error". Probably would not be a big deal to most people, but everyday I use the...

    So my mechanic tells me that my "spiral cassette" is going bad. First of all, never knew I had one. Secondly, what exactly is it? ( I know it's in steering column and may be tied in w/airbag?). Can anyone give me any advice, info, etc. I have a 2004 Passat sedan w/70k. Thanks

    I use a cassette thing for my ipod but now its stuck in the deck and will not come out. I tried the STOP EJECT button but to no avail. The stereo is reading that there is NO TAPE in it, when there is one stuck inside. Any ideas? TIA

    Can I install the cassette radio I pulled out of my 99 passat into any other car? is the security code enacted in the radio, or in the instrument control module? If it is the latter, can I by-pass it somehow? please let me know.

    I use a cassette tape adapter to listen to my iPod through the OEM stereo and it somehow got stuck. It still works but if no sound is detected it shows ERROR on the display. Has anyone ever had a tape get stuck and successfully extracted it without damaging the stereo? I tried prying it out...

    My college has unlimited free legal downloads for your computer, but if you burn the songs or upload them to an ipod, it costs 89 cents per song. So I decided to use the cheap way and get a car cassette adaptor for portable cd/mp3 players. My lady friend usually sits in the passenger seat with...

    Looking over the B6, it seems there is no cassette on the radio (or none mentioned in the specs).... with no line-in either.. how can they be this short-sighted on the design ?!?! EDIT: ok, I'm seeing reference now to an AUX connector.. glad to see there is a brain cell working at VW after...

    Hi- I have a 4.5 volt cassette adapter for my MD player. When it's plugged into the lighter socket a green light comes on to indicate it's fully seated. The light stays on even after I turn off everything. Do I need to unplug it to avoid draining the battery, or is it ok to leave it "on"? It...
