 General:

 

 

Honda motor and cars  can identified in following numbers

Location
Vehicle identification number – stamped onto the engine splash plate
– on the type plate
– on some models, behind the windscreen

 

It is not possible to derive the vehicle identification number in Honda vehicles from the engine or gearbox number, but it is possible to identify a range of possible VIN numbers through the engine number.

1. Vehicle Identification Number:

1.1 Location of the VIN

Normally stamped onto the engine splash plate. On some models there is an additional number behind the windscreen (visible VIN)

On the driver’s side on the left, behind the windscreen

1.2 Appearance of the VIN

Engine splash plate

All of this become the same blow figures like the engine number uses , so the single letters and Figures uniform 8.0 mms high and 4.8 mms wide.
The least impact depth lies with 0.2 mms.

The FIN is limited on the left and on the right with the mark X.

Windscreen (Visible VIN)
under different incidence of light

With the Visiblen FIN becomes the font Gothic German Institute for Standardization 30640 uses.
The single letters and figures are uniform 5 mms high and 4 mms wide.

1.3 VIN breakdown

2. Type Plate:

2.1 Location of the type plate

on the front across metal of the bodywork
on the suspension strut dome
Civic type plate, on the B-pillar, on the driver’s side entry
(the same applies to the Honda Accord, Honda Insight and Honda Jazz)

2.2 Appearance of the type plate

 type shield  following and vehicle data are evident: 1 =the  Vehicle Identification Number , Model ,the Engine Number and Colourcode (see Colourcodetable Point 5)

3. Engine Number:

3.2 Breakdown of the engine number

The least depth of her smashed engine number amounts to 0.2 mms.

The engine number exists of two parts. The first part calls the engine type, the smashed letters and Figures are 8.0 mms high and 4.8 mms wide. The second part calls them the standard number and these blow figures are 5.0 mms high and 3.0 mms wide.
