trying to buy parts

852 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Palangi
when trying to buy parts, I keep getting asked for my engine range. While the last few digits of the vin are my engine number, it seems to have nothing to do with what they are asking. I have a 1981 240D automatic. Here is what I'm presented with:

To which engine range does the vehicle belong?

my vin is WDBAB23A9BB266914

I'm missing something simple, I'm sure.

Your engine number should be on your engine on the driver's side.

Your engine number is 616912-12-059802.
and you have an automatic transmission..

-12- = automatic

-10- = manual
