Check VolksWagen VIN number
Finding the right part for your VW vehicle can be complicated unless you know what you are looking for.
When trying to find parts for your volkswagen, it is necessary to collect some basic information, like: model, year, engine type, trim level. This information can be found in your owner’s registration document or manual. Additionally, you can bring your VW to your local dealership and have them tell you that information by looking at the vehicle and/or reading the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
VIN is a unique serial number used by the automotive industry to identify individual motor vehicles. In 1981 the format for VIN was standadized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the United States. It required all over-the-road-vehicles sold to contain a 17-character VIN, which do not include the letters I (i), O (o), or Q (q) (to avoid confusion with numerals 1 and 0).
Nowadays, there are two related standards for Vehicle Identification Number systems. They are originally issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 1979 and 1980; ISO 3779 and ISO 3780, respectively. Compatible but somewhat different implementations of these ISO standards have been adopted by the European Union and the United States of America.
The VIN is 17 characters long and is composed of 3 main sections:
1. Digits 1-3: World Manufacturer Identifier
2. Digits 4-9: Vehicle Descriptor Section
3. Digits 10-17: Vehicle Identifier Section
