    I don't think you can change it without knowing the old one. You may need to restore the iPad as "New" in iTunes. Make sure to back up everything FIRST. Once restored as "new" you'll need to manually put ALL your stuff back on.
    It's ALOT of work.

    Check the Support section on the apple site before doing all that, just in case there's a different way.

    I've read a few times where you can find the restrictions password in a specific location in your backup file. Perhaps you can locate this information with some google searching.

    The password is part of your backup. Restoring it from a backup restores the password as well.

    Initializing as new is the only way to remove it if you cannot remember it or read it from the backup file with a backup reading utility.
