    lynnl,

    Check out some of the plastic mouldings, they usually have a date code on their non visible (reverse sides) referring to the year and month of manufacture of that ITEM. This will undoubtedly preceed the vehicles date of manufacture ~ but usually only by a month or so.

    My problem is the door stickers are faded to the point of non-readable.
    But Thanks to all.

    I don't think the VIN has month info. Have a look here:

    Last letter in the string before the last six digits often signifies the year of manufacture, and usually coded per manufacturer. Don't know month.

    lynnl,
    Check the ownwers manual for the vehicle. Sometimes there is a section that tells you the breakdown of the VIN, but I don't know if it will go down to month of manufacture.
    If it is a specialty vehichle, a vehicle that has been restored quite often, the restore's guide often has a detailed breakdown of the VINs.
    If I remember correctly the MOTOR manual has some info on this too.

    Does anyone know of a way to derive a vehicle's month of manufacture from the VIN #?
