Mk3 2013 radio code required?

Nope, it doesn't have one.

That's not strictly true. The radio does have a code but it's linked to the car's VIN. The system checks that the two match before allowing operation. This means you don't have to re-enter the code if the battery is disconnected.

If that was the case you wouldn't be able to swap headunits but you can. Fiesta is the same.

I have an aftermarket unit fitted professionally, when it was fitted, there was no mention of codes. So it should be alright for me to change battery?

If you have an aftermarket unit then it depends on the unit. I'd check the manual for it before unplugging the battery



No manual :( it's a android unit from China. 

Might just have to see what happens :S
