Car manufacturers assign specific codes to identify each colour of paint used in their vehicles. While codes will vary depending on models and years, you can use the codes to match paint for minor or major touch-up applications on your particular vehicle. For Ford vehicles, the paint code consists of two characters located on a sticker or plate found on the driver's door.
Open the driver's side door.
Locate the sticker on the inside end of the door or door jamb.
Locate the two-digit code, just above where it reads "exterior paint code" or "EXT PNT."
The code may be numbers, letters or a combination.
If the label is missing write down the VIN and contact a Ford dealership for assistance.
