Chassis vin stamp
« on: February 14, 2016, 09:51:39 pm »
Hello everyone, just joined and about to buy a 2010 galaxy, can anyone tell me where the chassis vin number stamp is please as I don,t want to get caught again buying a cloned vehicle, it was a very expensive mistake to just look at the body label and the windscreen label on a freelander I bought I need to see the factory stamp, also engine number location would be useful. Thanks all. Paul

I can't answer your question definitively but quite often the etched VIN number on the chassis itself is hidden under a little carpet flap in one of the footwells.

The VIN should be visible in the windscreen, all car's from 1995 had that as a requirement together with the number of airbags fitted. Normally, its in the lower right side (when viewed from front)

Ford vehicles are usually under a flap drivers side carpet just below the seat.
