The misses purchased a new Clio last month ( 11 plate ). I know this is a bit “anoraky” but I am interested in what the chassis number shows. i.e. when built, where built, variant etc. I know all the numbers mean something, is there anywhere I can find this information, not just the build date but what the other numbers mean. Tried a search on this site and was surprised not to find ( Could be me ).

Many thanks, Don.

Hi Don.

Your best bet would be the dealer who supplied the car - the numbers/letters do have meaning, but for security reasons (i.e. to prevent ringing/cloning, etc), the code is unique and decipherableonly by each manufacturer.

Hi Paul,

Many thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately I have no confidence in the Dealer to ask this sort of question.
If they told me New Years Day was on the 1st January I wouldn’t believe them.
I understand the reason about cloning etc but a shame I cannot find the information myself.

Once again many thanks, Don Kennedy

Don, just Google "Renault VIN deciphered" and you will get your answer. :d
