¿Dónde encuentro el Número de Identificación de Vehículo Ford?

You can typically find your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) in these locations:

  • Driver's side doorjamb    
  • Windshield (lower, driver's side corner)
  • Vehicle documentation (e.g., registration, insurance policy, lease, or promissory note)

Other locations may include the FordPass®* App, your Ford Account, and your vehicle's SYNC®** screen.


  • The VIN location for 1967 and older vehicles varies by model. You may find the VIN on the driver's side doorjamb, inside the glove compartment, on the right-hand dash panel, or the top left-hand side of the frame between the steering gearbox and firewall. 
  • The letters I, O, and Q are not included in a VIN to avoid confusion with the numbers 1 (One) and 0 (Zero).
