Find Your Type 2 Color & Paint Code
Volkswagen codes can be difficult to find. Most Volkswagen color codes are going to be somewhere around the spare tire area. They are printed on a paper color id tag which is guaranteed to fall off and disappear just when you need to find it. VW color codes are typically two, three, or four numbers long. Somtimes they can also be a combination of letters and numbers.
Example Volkswagen color code location:
The image above is an example of where to find your VW color code on a typical Volkswagen ID tag. In this example, the color code is "LDX7".
The typical color code format for Volkswagen is:
The color code above is actually two different color codes, LD7X and 2R which can be used. Typically most Volkswagen's have the LD7X, but occasionally we see the 2R. Why did they do this? Who knows!
LD7X corresponds to Platinum Gray Metallic Clearcoat Again, the 2R is also used on some Volkswagen's for the same color. Really old Volkswagen can be nearly impossible to figure out. Plus, they are discontinuing some of these toner colors so custom matching is the way to go.
Same Color Code, Different Name
Volkswagen, like all manufacturers, uses the exact same color across many models and then will have a different color name for each model. It's the same paint! This is why the color code is so important to order the correct paint.
For example, LD7X, above we call Platinum Gray Metallic Clearcoat It could also be called Gray Clearcoat, Platinum Moonstone Clearcoat, etc. depending on what the marketing department decided to call it.
