To determine the correct part number needed for your vehicle, it may be necessary to know the production date, model number, engine number, transmission code, axle code and color trim codes of your vehicle. The most important piece of information is the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). The VIN is a unique number assigned to all new cars that can tell us most of the information that we need. The VIN can be found in one of two places, depending on the year your vehicle was manufactured. This information can be found on the identification plate or label located as noted below. You can also find the VIN number on your vehicle registration or your insurance card.
