How to read your Volkswagen VIN Number

DSC_7455-35

 

In the past few days, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) a.k.a. Volkswagen Malaysia have announced a goodwill of additional two-year warranty on DSG, you can refer to the presentation deck here and also media coverage from Paultan.Org.

In summary, there are two conditions that MUST be met for this VPCM Customer Care Goodwill;

  1. VW cars produced up until December 2013 and with a mileage of up to 200,000 km;
  2. Customers must have a full service history at an authorised VW service centre – means you need to service in SC even after your warranty expire.

I would also like to note that the produce date, is not to be confused with manufacturing date, in case you assume that you can look it up by decoding your VIN number like I did earlier this morning; the production date is only accessible (I stand to be corrected) if you have parts catalog software like ETKA, Partslink24 or ELSA.

Anyway, since we are in the VIN topic, this is something I feel most new Volkswagen Owners should know. VIN is acronym for Vehicle Identification Number; some manufacturer calls it chassis number, carries manufacturer details of the car, example part number used, interior trim parts color code and is located on the window, in front of the passenger and for some cars on the label at driver’s side. Before we proceed, I would like to credit the following source for information (if you have time, they are good reading source);

http://www.it2.evaluand.com/downloads/VW1991-2006VIN.pdf
http://www.clubvw.org.au/vwvin

Here I have a sample VIN number, WVWZZZ1KZBW125109 of a local Volkswagen MK6 GTI. The VIN number is divided into 3 sections:

1. Digits 1-3: World Manufacturer Identifier
2. Digits 4-9: Vehicle Descriptor Section
3. Digits 10-17: Vehicle Identifier Section

If you put them based on the 3 sections, this is what it will look it.

WVW
ZZZ1KZ
BW125109

What does these all mean? Here’s a simple reference table which i extracted from here

vin-number

I am not going to go through the entire Vin Number description, you can read them on the reference sources but here’s a bit of what it can tell us:

  1. Most cars in Malaysia with start with WVW except the newer batch of Volkswagen CKD which starts with PPV (i reckon it should be Pekan Plant and V=VW)…. quite no-brainer huh LOL;
  2. WVW refers to as Europe Passenger Cars;
  3. Digit 7 and 8 refers to the model – in the sample Vin 1k = MK6, Scirocco= 13, Mk7=AUvin2
  4. The 10th digit is the manufacturing year and based on the table above, B = 2011. Source : http://www.clubvw.org.au/vwvin
  5. Digit no 11, the plant of manufacturer W = Wolfsburg – which I recall back during MK5 GTI days, there was a thread going on about who has the Wolfsburg unit and who has the Mexican Unit.

I hope this little information helps new Volkswagen owner on the VIN topic, and as usual, topic for discussion will be posted on https://www.facebook.com/groups/VWClubMsia/.

 

 

Sunsetting forum vwclubmalaysia.net

VWCM

This coming 02 June 2016 will be the 5th year that it has served the Volkswagen community in Malaysia but it is time to sun-set the forum. While we have plenty of archived information inside the forum, getting everyone to move from using Facebook to the forum, is like pushing boulders up the hill.

Traffic to the forum has dropped significantly in the recent months and attracted many spam bots, making maintenance somewhat time consuming. More importantly, Social Media today provides a much easier access, more reach and media friendly.

No doubt, information cannot be archived on such platform but no one seems to know how to use the “search” button in forum and as traffic drops, the forum has turned into a white elephant.

Facebook Group is much less maintenance, server is online all the time and you don’t have to worry about spam bots either. It is not easy for me to put to sleep something that I have conceptualized, build and maintained since day 1, not to mention many sleepless nights when the server goes offline and two major heart attacks when we lost the entire forum databases, twice!

With heavy heart, I guess we will have to bid goodbye to the forum on 02 June 2016 – still some time to go actually. All activities and information sharing will still continue at our Facebook group, please click here to go to the group and this URL (volkswagenmalaysia.club) will be for primary announcement / events.

Thank you everyone for the awesome 5 years.

Regards.
