    Default BX question about ORGA and Vin numbers

    I wonder if anyone here can point me in the right direction?

    My recently acquired BX 19TRI (built 2/89) has a Vin number on the build plate, Australian compliance plate, the registration papers and also engraved on the RHS inner guard. All agree. However when I have given this Vin number to a parts dealer and a local Citroen expert I am told that the Vin has too few characters. What do you think?

    Vin: VF7XBEY0000EY0638

    I have an additional problem in that I can not find the ORGA number, which I believe should be on the LHS A pillar.

    Yes ORGA should be on the LHS A pillar just inside the door jamb below the top hinge - it could have been covered over or removed by a previous respray.

    Your Vin problem is interesting. Your VIN has the same number of characters as the VIN of my BX, though when I enter yours into the http://service.citroen.com database it says unknown vehicle.

    Digit 10 (currently 0) would be K for 1989 maybe this might help at the dealer. Digit 9 matches up at 7, Digit 8 is part of the model code and 11 would = the build plant.

    So the best i can do if it's right is VF7XBEY07K0EY0638

    Region: 1 V Europe
    Country: 1-2 VF France
    Manufacturer: 2-3 F7 CitroŽn
    Model Specific: 4-8 XBEY0 Unknown
    Check Digit: 9 7 Valid
    Year: 10 K 1989
    Assembly Plant: 11 0 0
    Serial Number: 12-17 EY0638 EY0638
