Vauxhall paint codes - Location
As with most car manufacturers Vauxhall paint codes can be found in several locations. The most popular location is on a black information plate in the door shut, the loctation of this plate can vary by model so you may need to check all around the door frames to locate it.
The paint code format is usually 3 digits on the vauxhall. The code is usually toward the bottom of the black information plate generally in a 3 digit format often straight after a "Z" or "Y". Many colours have several codes (Mainly the Vauxhall and Opel Variants of the coding system). i.e the vehicle in the above image is coded 163 for LIGHTNING SILVER but this could also be coded 4AU for the same identical colour
We recommend always confirming the colour code on the vehicle prior to ordering. This is by far the most reliable way to ensure the right colour is ordered.
If you cannot locate your paint code on the vehicle the next best alternative is to contact a local Vauxhall dealer parts / service department with your registration / VIN number. They will be able to confirm your colour from the relevant manufacturer database. (Alas only dealers have access to this system)
When placing an order please provide as much information as you can. Vehicle paint code systems can vary widely so we will use these extra details to double check your colour code and ensure we provide you with the correct colour for your vehicle.Buy Vauxhall Touch Up Paint
