Tear-off edge: On each genuine Volkswagen pickup type plate in the ‘raw state’ there is a small plate on the right (see No 7 for an explanation), on which the key number is engraved. This small plate is broken off before it is installed, producing a sharp edge.
Notch: Every genuine type plate has a notch in its bottom edge (approx. 0.5 – 1 mm deep).
Production line number: The small, one digit number must always be present. It may, however, be partly hidden.

The vw pickup truck production identification number is an internal control number stamped onto the body shell before it comes to the assembly line.
The Volkswagen pick up production identification number contains 7 characters broken down as follows:
42 = Week of the year
5 = Day of the week
0087 = Serial number

1 = Monday until 6 = Saturday
