    Default VIN & Engine Number Lacation on Vectra

    Hi all,

    Sorry I've not introduced myself yet but I've not got a vectra yet but am looking to buy one soon!

    My question is, where can I find the vin number and the engine block number on a Vectra cdti please?

    I've attached some pictures and would like some advice on where to look to make sure they match properly.

    Also, I think I've highlighted the vin on one picture where the bonnet is but is that right?

    I heard the Vectra has a visible Vin, where is that please? On the window or something?

    What other signs of things should I look for when buying the car?

    I tried doing a search on the forums for vin identification or vin location but couldn't find anything, sorry.

    P.S. The pictures aren't of the car I'm buying but I used them for illustration purposes.

    Thanks very much for any help received.

    VIN plate is on the drivers B pillar and there is indeed a VIN strip on the dash on the passenger side, visible through the lower left of the windscreen

    Thanks for both of your responses, I'll know better when I'm looking now!

    The next question about the B pillar is, should the vin number be printed on it, etched on it or do I have to peel anything back to see it?

    Does it take some effort to see it or is it easily viewable?

    Thanks

    There's also another location of a VIN. On the drivers side floor, between the seat and the door sill, you'll see a little 'flap' in the carpet. Lift that up and you'll see a VIN stamped into the metal.
