How do i find month of manufacture from this number
You can't. The dealer is giving you the VIN number on the window sticker, which is 17 digits.

Ask them to give you the VIN number which is stamped under the driver seat. Its a 19 digit VIN, which will give you the month of manufacture.

Many Thanks for your reply!

Meanwhile i read an earlier post where it was mentioned that VIN number from under driver seat gives the requisite details.

Came to know that last two digits of the VIN were *G. Means , he is giving a July 2014 model to my friend

Have informed him accordingly.

Thanks to all the members for enhancing customer awareness

It's Jan 2015 make. The tenth character for year and the eleventh for month, E stands for 2015 and A for January. You can refer the below link and I think for Nissan and Renault, you need to follow the same.

Apologies and you are right. It's a October 2014 make. Please do check the Form 22 certificate before confirmation.

Also, posting the link for your reference from the previous posts done by master decoder Wildon.

Sorry if I am being repetitive. I actually wanted to know if there is any way to find out the exact manufacturing date. The thing is, according to the dealer, this car was made sometime between Jan 15th to 22nd. My birthday was on Jan 19th , so I wanted to know whether my car and I shared the same birthday!


Mods, please delete if off-topic. Thank you.

Manufacturing date is 18.11.2014, according to this site:

Check the 'extra information' for the exact manufacturing date:

Sir are you sure this is accurate? This site says that the car is a 2014 manufacture, but according to the VIN letters 'FC' it is Jan 2015 right? Really confused right now. Have I been cheated?

I'm not sure. The VIN of my car MAJAXXMRKAFC82199 decodes correctly on this site and shows the manufacturing date as 20.01.2015 (I have verified this date on the dealer invoice generated by Ford India)

I have checked all the invoices and forms (20,21,22) for the manufacture date and all of them say Jan 2015 (Form 22 is dated 22nd Jan 2015). So I'm inclined to think that the website is at fault. Is there any other way to accurately check the date of manufacture?

They conned you. The car was indeed manufactured in 18.11.2014.

You can check that in the Ford Etis website. https://www.etis.ford.com/

Click Vehicle, enter the VIN, click Search, take a print out and go meet your dealer.
