EPA Sticker/Vin-On drivers door jam?

I just bought a 03 Cobra and I went to get pictures/inspection for the insurance company. I didn't think that it was a big deal but today I received a post card from CARCO( the company that does the inspections) that the inspection was not complete because there is no EPA/Vin sticker on the drivers door jam. The previous owner must have taken it off for whatever reason. So does anyone know if it possible to get one of these stickers from ford or what else I can do?

Thanks
Darren

I don't see why it's such a big deal, the only information they really need for identification is the vin number on the dash. As far as getting a replacement...I really don't know. The car probably had body work/paint work in the door jamb area and they removed or painted over the sticker at this time.

If I'm not mistaken you can contact Ford and get a certificate of authenticity for the Cobra.

that wont help with what he needs though~ you can contact your local ford dealer, I am sure they get these questions since when a door jam is painted they are removed. If all else fails we can come up with some sort of sticker or something im sure (label with the image that is close with your vin on it etc)

I emailed ford yesterday and am awaiting a response. I think tomorrow I am going to give the company that inspected my car a call and see what they say.

What year is the car, color, and options. We can get something worked out I'm sure...

Re: EPA Sticker/Vin-On drivers door jam?

At Toyota, when there is body work done on the B pillar door jamb, we collect the removed labels and send out newly printed ones - any legitimate shop would go through this procedure..

I think it might have been something the guy had done for 'looks' rather than an auto body repair

Could be different with Fords though

It does look a lot better without that sticker in the door.


What happens if there is no removed labels to send out?

The label would be printed specifically for your car, detailing GVWR, your VIN/etc I don't know how easy it would be to get one.. I believe it has to come from the manufacturer but I don't know if they deal with the public, maybe only to body shops/dealers

Re: EPA Sticker/Vin-On drivers door jam?

I spoke to the inspection company today and they said that the person that inspected my car should have checked a box that says that the EPA sticker is missing and should have taken a picture of the door jamb with the missing sticker. Ford sent me an email basically saying that there are two companies that are licensed by Ford to issue these stickers. I visited both of their websites and it seems that they both only deal with older cars(1970-1989). I'm going to contact my local Ford dealer and a body shop to see what info they can give me.

Oh yea.... The email I received from Ford said that they will issue stickers to cars that are 3 years old or newer.
