His VIN is; WDBUF82JX5X171470

Correct check digit for this VIN is WDB2110291A483009.
(You can check the check digit manualy for free here (in russian, but with colored highlithing )

Check digit has purpose to help "external" checking of VIN - by policeman on road, scanned documents or code bars and so on... If you try to check incorrect VIN in EPC you receive "CHASSIS NOT FOUND".
Sorry but you seem to be talking about the US VIN format check digit. I was referring to the check digit after the 17 digit VIN code. The bold digits above are part of the chassis code (within the internal VIN format), not a check digit.

Did you not try the official EPC site? See the attached data card for the example VIN WDB2110261A483009 and the difference when compared to your site. The number "3" is present here: WDB2110261A483009 3

I already said you do not need the check digit with EPC but that does not mean there would not be any value with the check digit. EPC can provide it for other purposes.

I was told before: this digit not stored in database, it is generated with a print form.
Datacard from WIS/ASRA doesn't contain this digit
Today I will have meeting with main serviceman of Distributor and I ask him for this. But about 15 managers in MB services interviewed by me have no any knowledges about this digit. And don't use it in there work processes.

I see, of course I can only see the outcome, cannot see where the digit comes from. This explains why it appears differently from your web site.

In VeDoc (online system for tracking orders) this field has name "Control digit for FIN". And in VeDoc this field often is empty even for "full filled" Datacards in EPC. Nobody in distibutors company use this information - it is something "very internal" for Daimler's insiders. May be this digit is used for debugging errors in EPC's database or something else.

Verdict: Do not pay attention

Please recheck the vin # as the check digit is incorrect.
