Full Answer

The most common place to find the VIN label is the driver side doorjamb, either on the inside edge under the side mirror or on the door edge where the latch meets the frame. The label is also sometimes under the hood at the engine block front or near the wiper fluid tank. Some cars have the label in the rear tire well above the wheel or under the spare tire.
