Replaced the std tape deck in my EL GLI with a cd player, now I'd like to fit the tape deck to our second car... but I don't know the PIN, and we no longer have the EL having updated to an AUll wagon.

Anyone help?

You should have some rego papers or something floating around for your EL. Grab the chasis number from it and contact Ford, they should be able to tell you the 4 digit number to get it to work again.

so park down the street, ask him for the pin, if he reads it out before asking for the 10 bucks, do a runner :D
