Re: Get your Mercedes DataCard on line

Another good website for decoding G vins is Klaus' database and while it doesn't have everything Anakreon's list has, it also has many that his don't.

Re: Get your Mercedes DataCard on line

Dear Mr. Smart,
I am from Athens. In Greece.
I have nothing to do with Vancouver.
The gentle soul which provided me with the list resides in a body living in Canada.
Mind you, I've been over there - body & soul - umpteen times but count this as a mere coincidence.
Best regards.
:wink:

PS. Thanks for Klaus' db

Ahhh sorry I misunderstood... I read the "brothers in arms" as you were also from Vancouver. I did see the Athens bit but you could of been Greek Canadian...

It's definitely a Puch chassis number. The complete VIN should be VAG46023817900885... in any event, it looks to me that there is something wrong with that chassis number, because I cannot find the dtatacard either in the russian site or in my own licenced EPC...

Re: Get your Mercedes DataCard on line

I don't understand why it does not work with your VIN. It does with other Puchs....

No Problem. I had a new Bulgarian registration document when I registered it with them after I bought it from Varna with the Austrian papers and after 3 years of Cat( mot in uk) they have not found anything wrong. Appreciate your work and input . Is there any other identifying marks I could look for on the Vehicle?

Re: Get your Mercedes DataCard on line

Just a note to offer some help here. The system whilst being great most of the time doesn't always work. I have a 230C which won't list, whilst a 200 W123 same year etc does. Most of the W124's have come up, but only one of my two G's do!! Seems to be not all are listed for some reason-in that case, try your local friendly Main Dealer. They should have the data card still.

Thanks for message, I don't have a local, or friendly, main dealer.
I guess I am not rich enough with my old car. for them to be bothered.

Re: Get your Mercedes DataCard on line

Just so you know, the chassis number is also stamped on the chassis rail behind the front right wheel and will help you double check.

It costs around that for a YEAR not each visit - unlimited visits and access but it is picky as to which computer/platform you try to open it from, it only works on Internet Explorer:

What platform are you using, if you don't mind me asking?
I tried it on a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.6.4 but no luck "unable to launch application". Firefox v3.6.6

Ah I think that's the key difference...Windows. For some reason I don't think the EPC likes Mac very much.

Re: Get your Mercedes DataCard on line

hi friends, hi was trying to get a datacard on a recent purchase yet again....! but the russian website no longer offers the service..

can anyone get me details on this please. i am mostly interested in finding out which gearbox is fitted,as its an auto and i have a spare 617 in good health lying around. i know its not the best of options...but nothing wrong in trying,  if its not a good combo i will probably end up fitting a 711-110 manual transmission.

WDB 460 233227034950.
