Default Deon: where is your VIN located on the chassis?

Hi everyone,

I've got a Deon in my garage which has to be registered in the Netherlands (currently on a UK reg). Now the V5 shows a nice VIN number, which is a prerequisite for registering in the first place, but the problem is I cannot find the physical VIN on the chassis.
Asking the Deon owners here: where is your VIN located on the chassis?

Many thanks,

Kai

Default vin

Hi

There is no VIN plate as such but you should find a number stamped into the
chassis rail behind the engine where the boot lid hinges bolt up to. The number is normally stamped centre-ish between the boot hinge mountings.

Cheers Ian, sorry for the late reply, house build leaves no time for the dino, boohoo.

So, if I understand you correctly, it should be on the chassis rail in the following pic, between the red lines, right?


And not on the chassis rail in the pic:


Looks like the chassis is galvanized, I wonder if that covered up the VIN, although I cannot really imagine.

Ciao, Kai

Just get it stamped with the number or order a vin plate on eBay and stamp that up and fit

Unfortunately, a vin plate is not an option over here (Netherlands). The VIN must be stamped into the chassis, otherwise the RDW (Dutch DLVA equivalent) will not accept the car for registration.
Could have it stamped by the RDW though, if I do not find it. How's the VIN built up? Has it stars * as prefix and suffix or is it just the plain number?

Ciao, Kai

Bottom picture chassis rail behind seat (you've marked in red) should be stamped on there facing engine.
