    I have a red 2002 VX series II Acclaim for which I want to determine the paint code.

    My understanding was that this information should be under the bonnet somewhere on a panel, but I haven't been able to find it. There is a panel containing the VIN number, approval number (13261), category (MA), and some mention of general motors, but nothing on it that looks like a paint code. This panel is on the passenger side of the firewall.

    I cannot see any other panel in the engine bay with a paint code on it.

    Is there somewhere else I should be looking?

    On my car there is a tag near the headlight on the passenger's side.

    Many thanks for those clues. I can see now where the panel is supposed to be, but it is missing in my car. There are even rivet holes for it, but no panel. I don't know if it was never there or if some previous owner removed it.

    I would say it has been removed. If you go to Holden with the VIN they should be able to tell you all the info that was on that tag.
