I have done a search and haven't found much (other than removing the old stock unit).

2001 Jetta, Manual, 2.0

The guy I bought it from gave me some sort of code that he said I have to punch in? Can anybody shed some light on what is involved with this installation. I have done a number of decks, so I am looking for information specifically on this vehicles installation.

Are you putting an aftermarket HU in or another factory HU?

It's pretty straight forward to put an aftermarket HU in this cars. Pull old unit, wire up an aftermarket harness to your new unit, connect to vehicle harness.

Just make sure that you don't connect to the K-Wire:


That grey with white wire is the K-Wire. Feeding power to that wire from anything other than the factory HU will cause issues with your OBD system.

there are five or six different ones, which one is my best bet?

also, i am hooking up a pioneer headunit, so would the pioneer 'smart cable' work best?

I saw that. I know some are for if you have stereo controls on the steering wheel. Im not huge on stereo stuff. I don't even remeber which one I have. Its been like 4 years since I put mine in.
