Understanding & Locating Saxo Paint Codes
by BobC 19th July 2009

Where can I find the Saxo paint code / Saxo colour code label?
Saxo Mk1 (up to June 1999) colour code: in the engine bay on the passenger side suspension strut top mount, you will find a stamped code. See Haynes Saxo Manual 3506 section REF-3 for an example picture. It will be five characters long.

Saxo Mk2 colour codes can be found on drivers side door hinge pillar. You will find a self-adhesive identification label with the colour code on it. See below for an example.
What does it mean?
Saxo Mk1 (up to June 1999) colour code
Haynes example = EJXBR; which means:
The first three characters are the paint code; EJX = Venetian Red
The fourth character is a symbol for the site of manufacture.
The fifth character signifies lacquer or non-lacquer:
S = non-lacquer paint.
R = base coat and clear.

Saxo Mk2

a) Tyre pressures.
b) Tyre specification.
c) Tyre type.
d ) Recommended tyre pressure of the spare wheel.
e) After Sales - Replacement Parts number; the ĎRPOí number.
f ) Paint code reference.
g ) Factory serial number.
Saxo Colour Codes / Paint Codes
The paint code consists of 4 letters (e.g. Polar White, code EWPA - -).
The fourth character is the finish quality symbol:
A = non-lacquered flat paint
B = Superlustre solid colour
C = Superlustre metallic paint
D = Superlustre pearl paint
