How to Find Paint Codes and Interior Trim Codes on your Volvo

When we sell body parts and interior parts we always recommend to our customers that they match the paint or trim codes off of their vehicle to the codes from our vehicle. You might be suprised just how many color variations both in paint and interior trim colors were produced Volvos. 

Of course you can paint body parts to match your car, but we know it saves you time and money if you can find a replacement part already painted the right color. Here at East Coast we will always make the effort to help our customers get the right part they need and will provide paint and interior trim codes whenever possible.

This is a general guide of where to locate the paint and trim codes for your late model Volvo. We do not have a list of the coinciding names for the colors - but if you are at least able to match the numbers when purchasing a part you will take the guess work out of trying to match colors. 

Below I have listed a few examples of Volvos we have in inventory. The location of the VIN plate is different between models of Volvos. Sometimes it is easily accessible on the top of the fender apron and other times it can be hidden down on the inside behind the battery. See examples below.

On all of the late model Volvos we deal with, the interior trim code is always the four digit number located on the middle right side of the VIN plate. The paint code is the first three digits of the number below it.

  1. I have a volvo s40 2004 model but I can’t locate the paint code

  2. All Models: Either Driver or Passenger Side Strut Tower, On the Firewall, on the radiator support, inside the driver side door edge or jamb.

    It should be in one of those spots. Most typically with a S40 it’s on the Driver Side Strut Tower or Center of the Firewall.

    Hope that helps!
