Where can I find my Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)?

You can typically find your VIN in these locations:

  • Driver's side doorjamb.
  • Windshield, lower driver's side corner.
  • Vehicle documentation, such as registration, insurance policy, lease, or promissory note.

Other locations may include your vehicle's SYNC®* 3 screen, the Lincoln Way®** App, or your Lincoln Account.

  • SYNC 3 screen, if equipped.
    1. Press Settings.
    2. Press General.
    3. Select About SYNC.
  • Lincoln Way App.
    1. Log in to the Lincoln Way App.
    2. Press Account.
    3. Select your vehicle under My Vehicles.

  • Lincoln Account - Log in to your Lincoln Account. The VIN will be displayed below an image of your vehicle.


  • The VIN location for 1967 and older vehicles varies by model. You may find the VIN on the driver's side doorjamb, inside the glove compartment, on the right-hand dash panel, or the top left-hand side of the frame between the steering gearbox and firewall.
  • The letters I, O, and Q are not included in a VIN to avoid confusion with the numbers 1 (One) and 0 (Zero).
