They used to just do it over the phone. Are they making you book it in now?

VW changed the process years ago.
You have to book your car in, they plug in their diagnostics, get all the details, send it to VWAG in Germany, then they respond with a code for the radio.
Or you can buy a code off eBay and hope your radio does not get bricked and rendered 100% useless.

So much easier to write the code down in the service book / manual and eventually on the radio itself (if and when your take it out)

Spoke to a Vw service manager. They don’t do the code over the phone thing anymore. They need the car booked in, plugged into OBD system and then linked to Germany to get the code.
