    I’m trying to confirm the engine number of my 2015 CR-V SR 1.6 I-DTEC 4WD Auto. The owners manual states the location as left side front near the top of the engine. I’ve identified 2 separate numbers in this area, neither of which resembles the engine number listed in the service book. My engine type is N16A4. Would appreciate help locating the engine number!

    @Lisbon
    The number is stamped onto the block and included on the VIN.
    (On the VIN, there will be a sequence 'N16A4-xxxxxxxxx'. The suffix is the engine number)

    Example VINs
    Honda | What is a VIN?


    Unfortunately, ATM, I cannot access the resource on this site.

    Thanks @Nels I’ve had a close look from above, but cannot see the Engine Number. Was hoping someone could advise where on the block to look, without having to get the car up on a ramp, or removing any covers.

    I don't have a N series anymore but IIRC, the number could be seen from above and matched that on the VIN.
    No need to remove anything.
    The other number visible from above was the gearbox.

    Do either of the numbers you've seen match the VIN?

    No, nothing in common with VIN, or EN - just a series of ten numbers, no letters.

    As usual, the user manual diagram bares no resemblance to the car.

    It will be on your Vehicle Registration Certificate / log book.

    Indeed, and also on the VIN plate on the door frame. However, I need to show that the actual engine number on the block matches that recorded in these places.
