Volkswagen paint codes - for Jetta, Golf, New Beetle, Passat, and Touareg (page 2)

Caution - this is a guide only!  I am not responsible for typos or errors.  Always double check with your vendor to confirm your paint code.  The paint code should be located on the spare tire area in the trunk, on the floor of the trunk under the carpet, on the door jambs below the driver's side lock strike plate.  These colors all look the same on a computer screen, the colors are for quick reference only.  Some years are left out due to no diesel option.

If you would like to see a "how to" procedure on repairing a paint chip, see 1000q: paint chip repair.  You can also greatly reduce the appearance of most scratches without paint, see 1000q: polishing paint for more details.
