Renault Clio Paint Code

Can anyone tell me where the paint code is to be found on a 55 plate Clio?
I've done a search on the net but can't find anything
Thanks

Don't know anything about Renault Clios, but previous vehicles I've owned, the paint code has been listed in the manufacturers booklet you get with the car. It's normally a numerical code possibly with the VIN number. Have you also tried looking on the inside RHS front wing, sometimes there is a code stamped in here. Used to be on old Renaults.

Also try checking the plate located on the edge of the drivers door.

paoint code on the slio will be on the sticky label on the b pillar of the drivers door compartment, there will be a loa dof info on there and the code will be a letter and a couple of number like J42 (the aqua coloured modus's colour!)
you can get the code by ringing your renault dealer too if your at a total loss! all they need is the reg. number

on my clio its on the vin plate on the slam panel but hey its a 94 model so it may have moved, in my case its 449

But have also found this on a yahoo site

Hi it depends on which clio you have,

most clios made from 1998 have the VIN number in printed in a small b;ack box on the passenger side of the car by the bottom corner of the windscreen. if its not there then look under the drivers seat, there will be a bit of carpet that you can lift up and the vin number will be stamped there but it can be quiet hard to squeese in too read it.

if its an older clio (pre 1998) then there should be a plate in the engine bay(i think its on the bulk head) or till be on the plate which is on the drivers door pillar.

hope thats a help

Thanks all, will go and have a look if it stops raining.
I've had fun and games with paint codes before for my astra (the clio is my mother's car), I found it easy enough on the plate on the b pillar but then found that the code on it for Europa Blue is an Opel code and Vauxhall have a different code and call it European Blue - why ffs!

I just asked her if she knows what colour it is and I got a blank look, it's some sort of dark metallic grey.
Looks like it may have stopped raining so will pop out and have a look.
