this should do:
create trigger trg_requests_get_address
on Requests
for insert, update
as
  if @@rowcount > 0
  begin
  update r
      set r.FreeField1 = c.Address
         , r.FreeField2 = c.Phone
    from Requests r
    join Customers c
      on c.CustomerCode = r.CustomerCode
    join inserted i
      on i.ReqID = r.ReqID
    left join deleted d
      on d.ReqID = i.ReqID
    where isnull(d.CustomerCode, 0) <> i.CustomerCode
  end

Operand type clash: int is incompatible with uniqueidentifier

ok, let's fix that:
create trigger trg_requests_get_address
on Requests
for insert, update
as
  if @@rowcount > 0
  begin
  update r
      set r.FreeField1 = c.Address
         , r.FreeField2 = c.Phone
    from Requests r
    join Customers c
      on c.CustomerCode = r.CustomerCode
    join inserted i
      on i.ReqID = r.ReqID
    left join deleted d
      on d.ReqID = i.ReqID
    where ( d.CustomerCode IS NULL AND i.CustomerCode IS NOT NULL )
       or d.CustomerCode <> i.CustomerCode
  end
