Prior to a re-paint I have just removed a small alluminium plate (80mm x 10mm with rounded ends) from under the bonnet close to the master cylinders.
The vin/chassis number for my car is CTC54900
The engine number is CT54944HE
The number on this plate is C 55619
I understand that the number may be a body number and will be different to the numbers quoted above, However, all the literature that I have consulted suggests that it should probably be 55619 CT. The plate is well worn and I want to get a replacement made so I am keen to get it right.
Can anyone suggest why I might have a plate with a different configuration to the norm and should I change it so that the new one has the same numbers but with CT printed after the digits?
