It’s very common for Audi and Volkswagen models to have several engines with the same VIN code for the same year. Normally, these codes are three letters, but I have seen some 2008 Volkswagen engine codes with four digit engine codes.
Regardless of whether you have a three or a four digit engine code, to make sure you get the correct Audi or Volkswagen engine you have to know the engine code. There are a few ways to find it. Keep in mind that this is based off of my experience only – if you know another location the engine code can be found, please share it.
- In some years of VW and Audi vehicles, the engine code is on a sticker located on the engine’s timing cover.
- For many years, the engine code is located on the apron at the front of the engine compartment.
- In some years, check a sticker located on either the driver’s door or the frame the door closes into. Normally, this is the sticker that also has the VIN.
