In General:

Mercedes-Benz vehicles can be identified from the following numbers:

Location
Vehicle identification number – stamped onto the vehicle, inscribed by laser or ‘roller burnished’ (etched, not cut)
– on the type plate
Production Number – on the body plate / vehicle data plate / production plate
– on the body plate / vehicle data plate / production plate
Engine Number – on the engine block
Gearbox Number – on the gearbox
Radio number (when fitted at the plant) – on the radio and ‘Comand’ system

 

During business hours it is possible to identify  mercedes benz vehicles on the Daimler Data System (VEDOK) available at any Daimler establishment (but not dealerships). The following information can be found by means of the VEDOK system:

– VIN
– Production Number
– Engine number
– Gearbox number
– Radio number
– Vehicle registration document number
– Order number

Note:e.g. E-class, W/S 212
Depending on the model, the carpet flap over the VIN cannot be completely opened even if the seat is retracted as far as possible. So that the VIN is rather difficult to check.

For the mercedes benz Gl-Class please note:

In the period from 15.12.06 to 15.02.07, approximately 5700 vehicles of the GL-Class (VIN series …7A217443 to …7A238870) were produced. On these vehicles the VIN was displaced by about 5cm, so that the VIN is no longer located directly under the carpet flap.

1.2 Appearance and dimensions of the VIN

Since 1972, in Mercedes-Benz vehicles the Mercedes star has always appeared at the left and right extremities of the VIN (Exception: SLR McLaren). One point of the star always points towards the top. In the VIN sequence there are never any filler characters.

1.2.1 Stamped VIN (with the corresponding numbers as stamped)

A peculiarity on A-Class vehicles made in Brazil:
The year of manufacture is additionally placed on top of the VIN

1.2.2 A VIN “burned” on by laser

only used on the 140 series

The European VIN structure
The USA VIN structure

1.2.3 The new form of lettering

Used by and by in all plants as from 1 June 1996.

An example of a VIN from the Tuscaloosa works (the VIN was stamped before painting and is therefore painted)
N.B.: Vehicles from the Graz works (4-matic vehicles) also have a painted VIN.

Example of a painted VIN from the Tuscaloosa works:

Close-up images of the painted VIN:

Example of a VIN (from the C 216), as made in the Sindelfingen works after painting. There are still some metal particles visible around the VIN:

1.3 Visible VIN

Visible VINs are mandatory in the USA and some other countries. On vehicles destined for this market, the VIN can be found on the lower left edge of the windscreen behind a small clear spot in the shading. On some series, vehicles destined for other markets have the clear spot painted over with black paint before the windscreen is fitted. However sometimes there is a black blank sticker stuck on at this location.

Exception: With the C-Class sedans (W204), which in the work Sindelfingen (11. Put the work letter VIN A) were produced, a Visible VIN was introduced to 26.03.2008 in all vehicles (also European delivery). Since the 27.03.2008 only the vehicles with code 989 or code receive 986 (US VIN structures) the Visible VIN stuck – all the others show at this point a black blank foil on.
The foil is produced with a customary printer, so that the typography as well as the precision of the pressure deviates from the registrations on the type signs of newer generation (lasered).

Before the windscreen is fitted
(Examples from the C 219 and W164)
After the windscreen is fitted
(Examples from the R 171 and C 209)

Before the windscreen is installed; black blank sticker (from the C 216)
After put in the windscreen, C-Class sedan W204 from work Sindelfingen

2. Type Plate:

2.1 Location of the type plate

Location of the type plate on the radiator yoke on the 107, 124, 126, 129, 140, 201, 202 Series

For particular points relating to the 129, 140 and 202 Series, see also ‘’Location of the type plate on the B-spar’’ below

The factory plate is screwed, with recessed head screws, onto the right-hand side of the upper stiffening plate for the radiator, (radiator yoke), in the direction of travel. It can be read from the front (some export vehicles use rivets).

On the 107 Series: The factory plate is screwed, with recessed head screws, onto the left-hand side of the upper stiffening plate for the radiator, (radiator yoke), in the direction of travel. It can be read from the front.

Location of the type plate on the right B-spar on the Series: 129, 140, 163, 164, 168, 169, 170, 171, 197, 202, 203, 204, 207, 208, 209, 210, 211, 212, 215, 216, 219, 220, 221, 230, 245, 251, 414:

Starting in 1995, the type plate was glued onto the right B-spar on the 140 and 129 Series.

On the 202, after approximately VIN serial number 001000, the type plate is only found on the B-spar.

Various positions on the B-spar depending on the model:

N.B.:

Vehicles produced for the American market have the type plate (of various kinds) on the left B-spar.

Location of the factory plate on the left A-spar on the Type 199:

On the Type 199 (SLR), the type plate is stuck onto the left A-spar behind the door lever. At the bottom left, instead of “Made in Germany”, the words “Made in England” can be found.

2.2 Form and Appearance of the Type plates

Type plate 1

There was as yet no World Manufacturer Identifier Code during the period when these type plates were in use (in the 1960s and 70s). ‘WDB’ was later used for Mercedes-Benz. Therefore in those years the VIN consisted of 14 characters. The model/design number (i.e. on VINs of this type the first 6 characters) were already put on in plain printing by the plate manufacturer. During the 1960s there was a dot after the 3-character engine code. The remaining eight digits were embossed by the vehicle manufacturer.

Type plate 2

This kind of type plate was used on all passenger car series from 1980 until the 32nd calendar week of 1989

Type plate 3

This kind of type plate was used on all passenger car series from 1980 until the 33rd calendar week of 1989.

Type plate 4

This type plate was only used on the 202 Series. When production of the 202 Series first began, circa 1000 vehicles were issued with type plate No 3. The type plate can vary depending on the country of destination, or whether or not it has an EEC type approval.

The base material is a metal foil covered in white. One side is adhesive.

Type plate 5

This plate came into use starting in 6/95 on the 210 and 202 Series. From 12/96 it was introduced into the existing 140 and 129 Series, and in all new series.

Type plate 6

The type plate is identical with Typenschild 5, however, the manufacturer’s name from changed from 07/97 „MERCEDES-BENZ AG“ to „DAIMLER-BENZ AG“.

Type plate 7

After 01/02/99 the designation “DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG” was put on the type plate.

Type plate 8

How type sign No. 7, however, with stylized ” Mercedes star ” and stroke ” Mercedes Benz ” (in the sloping light obviously). Since 14.06.2002 this type sign is used for the class R 230 (SL). The application in all other classes occurred successive after consumption of the available present foils.
If vehicle produces in Germany (here type 221), then with addition: Made in Germany
If vehicle produces beyond Germany (here type 164), then without addition: Maggot in Germany, but if necessary „ maggot in Austria “, „ maggot in England “ etc.

Type plate 9

How type sign No. 8, however, with new company name “DAIMLER AG”. Application from 01.01.2008, with classes with model care in autumn, 2007 also already a little bit before.
Apart from the type plate, all the other lasered plates used in the vehicles also use this basic foil.

Type plate 10

Like type plate No. 9; however, the Mercedes star and the written name “Mercedes Benz“ are no longer visible in a straight but a diagonal manner on the foil. Used approx. from the end of 2009.

Exception: type plate AMG

The CLK AMG DTM shows a specific feature with the type sign. The vehicle is delivered as a CLK 200 by the Mercedes work in AMG and, hence, has a regular type sign No. 7 with the construction pattern 209 34. With the fa AMG the vehicle receives a completely other engine and bigger changes in the bodywork.

These changes become by an additional type sign with a so-called. Step 2 approval documents. On this additional type sign an independent VIN is registered (sequentially numbered), as it is nowhere to be found again, otherwise, however, in the vehicle. Hence, for the vehicle and his traffic licensing the FIN of the CLK 200 is furthermore a compressor as it is registered on the original-type sign and also is introduced in the vehicle in the metal, valid.

The method with the complementary type sign for the step 2 approval is also applied with some other AMG models (among other things with the CL-AMG / type 216).
The appearance of the type signs can easily vary. While, for instance, at the beginning of the production of the CL 63-AMG and CL 65-AMG a purely black foil was used and this was printed customarily, the original-security foil (with Mercedes logo and stroke is used from autumn, 2007 also with these models in the sloping light) and the registrations are put down by means of laser.

The additional AMG type plate is not always attached directly next to the original type plate. In the 216 model (CL-class), for example, it is attached to the right B-pillar above the lock.

Characteristic of SLS-AMG

The type plate of the Mercedes-Benz SLS-AMG may differ from the other Mercedes type plates. For instance with respect to the vehicle equipment codes 966, 967, 968, 969, i.e. shipment with COC paper (= currently all shipments to Europe and the so-called ROW (rest of world) countries, except for U.S.A., Canada, etc.). In these cases, the manufacturer’s name is “MERCEDES-AMG GMBH“ instead of “DAIMLER AG“, and the Mercedes star plus the name “Mercedes“ written on the left side is replaced by the AMG logo. The VIN starts with the WMI “WMX“.

If the car is delivered without COC paper (i.e. without vehicle equipment codes 966, 697, 968, 969), „conventional“ type plates like type plate No. 10 or type plates according to the regulations in the U.S.A., Canada, etc. are used Manifacturer: „DAIMLER AG“, WMI: „WDD“).

3. Body Plate (Superstructure Plate) /Vehicle Data Plate and Production Plate:

3.1 Body plate

3.1.1 Body plate (Superstructure plate) in general

– is screwed onto the body shell

– is overpainted in the vehicle’s colour

– no paint should be visible under the body plate up until 7/93

– after 8/93 however, paint should be visible under the plate as it was mounted on small metal nipples

The plate is fixed onto the primed body shell using 2 recessed head screws. The body shell is then immersed in a paint bath. The body shell and its body plate are coveredwith a continuous layer of paint. The paint should extend continuously right up to the radiator yoke. If the plate is removed, the paint on the edges of the plate crumbles. A genuine plate should have no paint on the bodywork beneath it.

Since 1993 the plate has normally been placed on nipples. In the immersion tank paint also flows underneath the plate and leaves a layer of paint underneath the plate.

3.1.2 Location of the body plate (superstructure plate)

Location for the types 124 / 126 / 140 / 201 / 202 / C208 / 210
Location for the type SLK type 170 / SL type 129 / CLK Cabrio type 208
Close-up:

Attention:
Vehicles of the old M-Class (W163) and old A-Class (W168) do not have a body plate. Control of production at the works on these series was done by mans of a transponder placed in the left wing of a vehicle. When production was complete the transponder was removed from the vehicle.

3.1.3 Form and appearance of the body plate (superstructure plate)

3.2 Vehicle data plate

3.2.1 Vehicle data plate in general

When production began on the 168, 215, 220 (1998 / 1999) and all following series, the vehicle data plate was introduced in place of the car body plate (until the introduction of the production plate in 2005). On the 163 Series the vehicle data plate was introduced in the course of the year 2000.

A second vehicle data plate was introduced on the 168, 215, 220 and most subsequent production series as a replacement for the production strip.

On the 129, 140, 170, 202, 208 and 210 series, the vehicle data plate was introduced in place of the production strip between 1997 and 1999.

(See also No. 6 and the following – assembly document and production stripe)

The vehicle data plate is identical to the type plate in the way it is produced and the material used.

3.2.2 Location of the vehicle data plate

When the vehicle data plate was introduced, it was stuck onto the right A-pillar. Then it tended to be placed on the right B-pillar.
From March 2002 onwards it has been stuck onto the underside of the bonnet and is visible from below.

Exception:

On the 199 Series (SLR-McLaren) it is stuck onto the left A-pillar, beneath the type plate.

3.2.3 Location of the second vehicle data plate

Most series have a second vehicle data plate stuck onto the floor of the boot or on other locations in the boot (e.g. under the parcel shelf).

Exception:

On the 211 and 169 Series it was stuck onto the upper inner wall of the tank well, and visible from below.

Locations of the vehicle data plate

  Plate 1 Plate 2
163 A or B Pillar No second plate
199 Left A pillar beneath the type plate No second plate
168 A or B pillar, and, from March 2002, stuck to the inside of the bonnet In the boot, on the left, near the jack (the jack must first be removed)
169 Stuck onto the filler neck cavity
203 litre Saloon Stuck onto the underside of the parcel shelf
203 Coupe / 171 Stuck onto the floor of the boot
203 T-Model Near the rear light, behind the trim

230 On the rear panel of the boot

 

3.2.4 Form and appearance of the vehicle data plate
Changes from 01.02.99
Changes from 14.06.2002
Since the 14/06/02 if becomes beginning with the new SL-Class (R 230) a new foil used. (see description type sign 7)

3.3 Production plate

All Mercedes Benz vehicles since the end of February/beginning of March 2005 (the 9th calendar week) have had a production plate instead of the vehicle data plate. A second vehicle data plate is not used.

Exception:

The vehicle data plate was still used at first on the W164 and X164. Only after April 2006 was the production plate used.

3.3.1 Location of the production plate

The production plate is stuck onto the inner side of the bonnet. The exact location varies from model to model (further forward or back).

Exception McLaren SLR: The production sign is under the type plate in left A-spar one

3.3.2 Appearance and content of the production plate

The production plate is made of the same material as type plate 7 and resembles it in the use of the stylised “Mercedes star“ and the words “Mercedes-Benz” (which are visible under slanting light). The plate contains no other evidence of the manufacturer. The corners must have been precisely rounded off by the laser.

Examples:

4. Engine Number:

4.1 Location of the engine number

On all newer petrol engines, the engine number is located on a smooth spot on the top, on the right as viewed in the direction of travel, on the transition to the gearbox (see the image of the V6/V8/V12 petrol engines). Depending on the particular engine, the number is more or less easily readable when viewed from above, if looking down towards the gearbox between the engine and the subframe.

4.2 Appearance of the engine number

On Mercedes-Benz vehicles engine numbers are stamped or needle punched (the so-called “Grand Centre-Punch”) but newer engines also “etched” (milled) numbering; (i.e., engraved, whereby the point where the tool first makes contact can clearly be distinguished on each character or sign).

Stamped engine number:

An example of a older model 6-cylinder engine

Etched engine number:

The place where the tool begins its operation can be recognised as a dot. An example from a V12-cylinder engine

Attention:

There are sometimes variations from the above scheme on replacement engines.
New numbers are normally only issued when a completely new engine is installed. The original number is retained when engines are given a complete overhaul.

Replacement engines have small metal plates onto which the new engine number has been engraved.

5. Gearbox number:

5.1 Location of the gearbox number

Manual transmission
On a smooth spot on the right side of the gearbox (does not apply to the A/B-Class)
Automatic transmission
On a smooth spot on the left side of the gearbox (does not apply to the A/B-Class)
A/B-Class Manual Transmission:It has one line. It is found lower down on the left-hand side (viewed in the direction of travel) where the gearbox meets the engine. The gearbox serial number is also additionally on the barcode sticker.
A/B-Class Automatic Transmission:
It has two lines. It is found towards the back on the left-hand side (viewed in the direction of travel) where the gearbox meets the engine. The gearbox serial number is also additionally on the round sticker.

6. Radio/Command System Number:

If a radio or ‘comand’ system was originally installed at the works, this number can be used to identify the VIN. Unlike radios, command systems can be identified on the central screen. Versions depend on the year and model.

Examples:

C 209 command system (2003)
C 171 command system (2005)

6.1 Location of the radio / command system number

Radio/command system numbers are located on a sticker on the housing of the mercedes benz.

Their appearances vary depending on the manufacturer.

On some models, particularly on radios, the number may also be present in the metal housing.

6.2 Breakdown of the radio/command system number

Radio numbers always have 14 characters. Frequently however, especially on apparatus built by the Becker company, there can be two different stickers with slightly different radio numbers on the radio/‘comand’ system placed on the same apparatus.
