The chassis number will be stamped in many places but they will be well hidden; this is to help police identify stolen cars. It should also have a plainly visible one somewhere. Was the car categorised by an insurer and maybe had the plate removed because of it?

Doesn't it also have a chassis number, out of reach, behind the windscreen that can be read from the outside?

You can always phone a dealer and ask them where the numbers are on that model, if no one here has a handbook for that model.

If all else fails, the onboard computer will have it but it will need to be read with a diag tool (i.e. a dealer or independent perhaps). I take it you need this to check it against the V5c. Yeah?
