VIN

  1. VIN
  2. Tear-off edge: On each genuine 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.
  3. Notch: Every genuine type plate has a notch in its bottom edge (approx. 0.5 – 1 mm deep).
  4. Production line number: The small, one digit number must always be present. It may, however, be partly hidden.
  5. 7-digit production identification number.
  6. Sort number: The sort number has four characters. It may be missing from genuine plates, but this is seldom the case.
  7. Key tag: (see also No. 2)

New version of the type plate (adhesive plate)

This Factory plate consists of a black adhesive foil. This goes out of shape while departing. A 7-character production identification number is located on the right edge on the LT 2.

Replacement factory plate until 2009

Replacement factory plate until 2009

If an original truck Volkswagen factory plate or sticker has been lost or damaged, a replacement type plate can be ordered from an authorised VAG dealer. These are centrally produced in Kassel on behalf of the entire VAG concern in the central spare parts organisation. They are also registered there. (Research possible since June 2002)
These replacement type plates can be recognised by the production identification number (PKN) which, in contrast to a normal PKN, begins with the number ‘8’.

 Productions Identifications Number LT2

The production identification number is an internal control number stamped onto the body shell before it comes to the assembly line.

The production identification number contains 7 characters broken down as follows:

                 e.g.:           42-5-0087

                 42     =       Week of the year

                 5       =       Day of the week

                 0087 =       Serial number

Week of year:

On the 1st and 2nd digits of the production identification number represent the week of the current year (not the week of the production year). Numbers higher than 52 are found on duplicate plates.

Another difference is found in specially manufactured cars. In this case, the production identification number begins with “59-0-….“.

Day of the week:

1 = Monday     until    6 = Saturday

0 = Exact production day not given

7 = Vehicle planned at a later stage

The year of construction cannot be deduced from the production identification number.

The complete engine number can also be read off from a sticker on the engine. This can normally be read easily from above (with new models sometimes from engine disguising covers). Sometimes, however, particularly on older vehicles, this sticker can have been worn off.
