please provide the last 7 digits of the vin number of your vehicle so that I can verify.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I don't know what a VIN number is? My registration is LD57CZO
Expert:  Steve replied 3 years ago.

the registration does not help


the Vehicle Identification Number is the unique ID that every vehicle worldwide has


it will be on your ownership, registration, insurance, bill of sale, and is also in the lower corner the windscreen, visible from outside the vehicle

My car is not here t the moment. All the docs are in the car. I do have my insurance doc but cannot find this number on it anywhere.
Expert:  Steve replied 3 years ago.

Please post the number when it is available.

(Sigh). Why can't you just refund the payment since it has not been possible to answer my question - albeit because I could not provide the information you asked for?
Expert:  Steve replied 3 years ago.

please just post the vin when the vehicle is available or call whoever has the vehicle.


then you will have your answer and I will be credited with providing an answer.
