VW Paint Codes


The use of paint codes, whether you have a scratch or huge dent, ensures that in painting, restoring or repairing the exterior of your Volkswagen, you will get a precise match of your auto's original color.


  • The location of the paint codes varies depending on the make, model and year of your VW. The two-to-four number/letter digit code is usually under the rear trunk, under the trunk mat or in the spare tire wheel well.

Other Paint Code Sources

  • If you are unable to locate your paint code anywhere on your vehicle, check your owner's manual. If the information is not available from that source, call a VW dealership, give your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and have the dealer look it up for you.

Benefits of Paint Codes

  • Paint codes will ensure that you are using the correct color. Do not try to match your paint without these codes; even experts will be unable to do an effective match without the correct information. Even if you try to match colors on the Internet, the quality and shade of the color shown will depend on your computer.
