sorry, I couldn't find a thread, or how to start a new thread, (any advise would be appreciated) I have been advised that my new Tekna will be delivered on the 22nd May ready for the PDI. Could anyone tell me where the VIN plate is situated please.

It's really quite visible Tiffany. :)
It's just near where the windscreen wipers sit.

Thanks everyone for being so helpful. I just wanted to make sure that when I go and collect the new QQ the documentation is all correct. Roll on Saturday or before if I am very lucky.  Big smile

Ok have just almost crawled over the car. Only thing on screen is saint- gobain sekurit, and a bunch of numbers ( all pertaining to a replacement screen.

I thought vin plates were just that ... A plate with info stamped on and stuck under the hood ?

When did they start stamping details on the screen ?.

Ok.... Take aim..... Fire lol only BB guns allowed.

Its not on the screen. Usually punched into the body and can be seen thru a viewing port in the screen near the bottom so Old Bill can identify the car. Near the tax disk?

It is hidden behind a little "door" just below the windscreen in the engine bay. (Plastic)

The dealer has said the new QQ has arrived. The downside is I can't have until Wednesday due to the BH. As I am working until Friday I will have to wait nearly a week before I get my hands on it. Then off to Cornwall on Saturday. This should give it a good run. Can't wait now.

The VIN number is most definitely highly visible when one looks through the wind-shield from the nearside of the car, just above the dash-board . I would strongly suggest that if you cannot see it, that you need to seriously ask yourself whether or not you are fit to drive !!

So that's on the dash panel then..
Tiff, like me, is old school. The vin plate was always on the bulkhead or the inner wing, either way only visible with the bonnet up and not through the windscreen.

Exactly, it is in plain sight ..at Least on my car. Bottom of the windscreen left hand corner visible from the outside through the rectangular window cutout without any stress.

This was the post that threw me, I read it as being "stamped on the screen". So I went out and scrutinised the screen looking for an etched VIN number Said to my husband.... " according to a member the vin is on the windscreen " . He said same as me.... "Bloody weird place to put a VIN"

Yes mavrik, like you I'm old school, as is hubby. Up until   the other day we only knew one way to look at the VIN plate..... Bonnet up lean over and get filthy.... (Only ever had old cars until the last few years).so assumed putting the bonnet up was still the only way to check it.

I found it all quite frustrating even a little amusing until I read breengers rude post post
..... After all I did say in my first reply it should be " under the hood on the bulkhead. I'm not totally stupid, just not aware of a viewing window.

But thank you all for trying to steer the    " not fit to drive"   person/s to the viewing window. I'm off to look in the morning when it's light I do believe you guys, just want to see my VIN through the keyhole.

Tiff

Ah right! Now I'm on the same page.....

The op asked where the "VIN plate" was.... NOT the VIN number. And yes I'm old school, vin plate usually found by lifting the bonnet.

Reading some replies I thought I was being directed to look "at" the screen .... So I did from the inside was looking for the full hit that you normally find on the plate.

Just been out for another look and because I knew exactly where to look I found the bu99er.

And my official VIN plate is on the B pillar.

Ok I'm off to lay down in a dark room

To kick it off again there is probably another VIN stamped on the floor under a bit of carpet that lifts to read it. Big smile
