Whats a VIN number ( Vehicle Identification Number) ?

VIN Engine Code can help you confirm the fitment.
It also can help you to find he precise auto parts by vin number.
HJL provides FREE "vin code lookup" service if you don't know how to check vin number.    

Example of a VIN number:

The car’s vehicle identification number(VIN) is the identifying code for a Specific automobile. A VIN is composed of 17 charactoers(digits and capital letters) that act as a unique identifier for the vehicle. A VIN displays the car’s unique features, specifications and manufacturer. The VIN can be used to track recalls, registrations, warranty claims, thefts and insurance coverage.

What if the VIN is not 17 characters long?

Double-check to make sure that you have the right VIN and have copied it down correctly.
Once you have verified that the VIN is definitely less than 17 characters, the VIN is most likely from a pre-1981 vehicle.

Where Can I find the VIN?

Alright, now let’s proceed the most important part, and that’s “Where can I find the VIN”?
The VIN can be found by looking at the dashboard on the driver's side of the vehicle.


#1 Check the bottom corner of the front windscreen

The easiest way to view it is to stand outside the vehicle on the driver's side and look at the corner of the dashboard where it meets the windshield.

#2 Check the VIN number sticker near door latches at driver’s side
If the VIN cannot be found there, open the driver's side door and look at the door post (where the door latches when it is closed).
It is likely that the VIN will also be displayed in this location.
See the image below:

More and more modern cars are equipped with the car computer which will have the VIN number information stored in the CPU.
However, if you have difficulties to locate the engine vin code, here I have some more places where may have your car VIN number.


#3 Search VIN No on the Insurance Card


#4 Check the build plate

In the build plate, it will contain the vehicle details including the VIN No.


#5 Check the foot well of the front seat on either the driver side or passenger side

Many cars have its VIN number stamped into the floors so remember to have a look.


#6 Check the engine compartment

Some order cars have their VIN number riveted on the front panel and some may have the VIN stamped into the firewall below the rain channel.


#7 Check the boot or the trunk area


#8 Check the chassis area for the stamped VIN plate

Usually the larger 4*4 SUV vehicles tend to stamp the VIN into the chassis frame or behind the front wheel.


#9 Check the User Manual

The User Manual will indicate the precise VIN plate location for your car.

So you will have the idea where to do the vin number search.
