How to find VIN by transmission number?

Hi,
I have been told that it is possible to find mb vin number via transmission number. If it's possible, where can I do that?

Thanks

Ask at your dealer from a person who has access to VeDoc.

OK, you have to find someone who can use the database, not only one that has access to it.

Does your vehicle not have a VIN number??? or is this a curiosity question if it is possible? Do you know your transmission serial number? I am not sure if it is possible due to the fact that we don't know if the transmission is original to the vehicle, unless you own the vehicle from new and you have never had it replaced.

Cheers!

A good point. I sort of thought he had a spare part tranny and wanted to know which car it came from. One would not need to search this way when checking if the VIN on the vehicle matches the original tranny, it would be enough to read the datacard for the VIN in question.

A bit of background would motivate forum members to give more feedback. Some have VeDoc access but might not care to spend their time on a vague case like this.
