Where can I find my VIN?

How to find your vehicle identification number in a few different places, both off and on your vehicle:

On the Vehicle

The VIN can often be found on the lower-left corner of the dashboard, in front of the steering wheel. You can read the number by looking through the windshield.

The VIN may also appear in a number of other locations:

  • Front of the engine block.This should be easy to spot by popping open the hood, and looking at the front of the engine.
  • Front of the car frame,near the container that holds windshield washer fluid.
  • Rear wheel well.Try looking up, directly above the tire.
  • Inside the driver-side doorjamb.Open the door, and look underneath where the side-view mirror would be located if the door was shut.
  • Driver-side doorpost.Open the door, and look near the spot where the door latches, not too far from the seatbelt return.
  • Underneath the spare tire.

  • Vehicle Title
