The Great Wall VIN is fully compliant with the standards and consists of 17 characters. The checksum (control number, check digit) in the 9th position and the model year in the 10th position are mandatory.
When checking the “national” VIN vehicles, passed through SKD assembly at the plants in the CIS countries (such VINs start with “X”, “Y”, “Z” and are not marked on the body power elements, and attached to his plate) must be aware that, as a rule, SKD assemblers take the original Chinese VIN and change only the first three characters in it (this WMI – international manufacturing code) to their own and, therefore, such a VIN check the checksum will not pass. In this case, replace the first 3 symbols of VIN with “LGW” – after that check should be passed. Although it is still best to use the former “native” VIN, punched on the body, which now serves simply as a body number, as typing the plate with the VIN at our assembly plant may have made a mistake in any other characters of the VIN.
