New battery, coded to car?

Hi All

I have just ordered a new battery for our 1.6d trekking, I would like to fit the battery myself but am unsure if the battery needs to be coded to the car like on some other modern vehicles. Any help or advice would be great.

No. Removing the battery might require you to enter the radio code but usually you only lose any pre-set stations and the time/date etc.
