Vehicle title, Registration card, Insurance documents, Owner’s manual, Body shop repair records, Police reports, Vehicle history report.

If you don’t have the documentation mentioned above, you can find the VIN on the actual vehicle itself.

VIN# helps us acquire genuine parts from dealer for your vehicle in order to custom design guards.

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 door jamb. Open the door, and look underneath where the side-view mirror would be located if the door was shut.

Driver-side door post. Open the door, and look near the spot where the door latches, not too far from the seatbelt return.

Underneath the spare tire.

 

If you still can’t locate the VIN, try consulting your vehicle manual. Or, call a dealership or the manufacturer and request guidance. You will need it to do a VIN check.
